Only a gun nut would try this. [whacko] I have this old Dual 1229 turntable that I got in 1973. Its been a great machine and its played a million LPs over the years. Anyway I recently purchased a CD recorder so I could make CD copies of my LPs and play them in my car, etc. Well, since I had not used the turntable for a couple years, naturally it didn't run. Undaunted, I removed the platter, cleaned up all the dried out grease everywhere....USING Q-tips and....CLP! I even put a drop of CLP on the motor bearings. Now, its back in action, probably run another 30 years.. THANKS CLP!

I've got a Dual 1209, one model down from your top-of-the-line 1219. I've cleaned the bearing in my turntable and relube with some Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil, works like a champ. If you clean that bearing out periodically, you will reduce the rumble(low frequency sound transmitted by the drive motor by at least half). OT But a few years ago(like 15?), I spoke with a service tech, and he says that the 1219 plastic tonearm gimbal pivots bearings has low tone arm bearing friction, where as the 1209 has hardened steel pivots and of course higher friction. Anyways he says that the 1219 arm could loosen over time because the plastic wears. FWIW.

Well, I used Tetra to fix my CD player. It works great now. My stereo unit (mini 3 CD Awia) was placed infront of a window. I had the habit of leaving the window open, well weather took its toll. The head of the laser wouldn't move smoothly anymore, and the spindle and CD tray just didn't want to turn anymore. Took the thing apart (now that took a good evening to figure out), cleaned everything out with Q-tips with carb cleaner on them. Went back and put Tetra on everything. Result - One working CD unit!! Wooo Hooo!!!
