Hello. I have a mid 1990s Orbe which has never has a bearing oil change. It has not had much use over the last 15 years but now that the kids have left home (yes!!!!!!) I am returning to the hobby. Can anyone advise me a) would an oil change be worth doing - I seem to remember it was said to last " a lifetime" and b) if so, how would I actually do this - is there anywhere can I get step by step instructions for someone who is not technically minded and has never looked inside a turntable before? Cheers and thanks for any help.
