Antique SAAL Record Player Cleanup

Image
In for repair is an antique record player with a SAAL motor.  Serial number 17692 built in Chicago Ill.

The movement was extremely dirty.  This is a picture of the movement before any work was done.

Very greasy
After taking the mechanism apart the grease is really visible. This is a picture of the main spindle

The mainspring barrel
