German Charles Altmann—of Altmann Micro Machines fame—has provided a detailed how-to photo guide to constructing your own record-playing device. It’s a daunting task, but Altmann has gone to great lengths to lead you through the delicate, precise process. The rewards of accomplishing this feat will be immense, of course.
