Chris why don't you just change your settings to keep me logged on always, or whatever the exact wording is.

that is not an exceptionally long startup time for a tube console.

3M makes this great stuff called scotchbrite... works just like steel wool but no metal fibers to worry about.   ;D

For cleaning Tube sockets I like CRC Electronic cleaner and a good old fashioned pipe cleaner or a Proxy Toothbrush.

For cleaning rotary switches I have been using WD-40 with good success, and most importantly no failures caused by the product.

Tubes I just wipe with a paper towel and some windex... I could care less if the markings get wiped off, no one is gonna see em any way.

As for the cabinetry if it's really yucky an application of Gojo waterless hand cleaner (the original creamy kind without pumice/grit) will get off a surprising amount of gook and is especially good at removing build up of nicotine and furniture polish.  Then a quick once over with Old English Furniture Polish (the scratch cover type) and finally a coat of two of good old Johnsons paste wax.

A bit crusty with age but overall it doesn't look too bad, should clean up just fine from the looks of those photos.

I think that this FP Imperial is one of the nicer units, it's got some heft to it and has a very masculine feel about it that a lot of FP furniture seems to lack.

yup  61. The clincher is the "Feather Touch" inscription on the Tonearm. That was a 61 only deal.

That Provincial is a nice looker with the cherry finish, it should clean up real nice! 

You got a hell of a deal there!

To me the audio quality for 99% of what is on YT is pretty craptastic. It's for that reason that I don't watch much YT video and I would never bother downloading it.

I believe the unit in question from the first post is a Stratford.
