Weathers Equipment
In 2001, Surplus Sales of Nebraska acquired the inventory of Compass Technical Services. Read about that adventure here:

https://blog.surplussales.com/compass-technical-services-we-spent-a-year-there-on-week/

As Compass had previously acquired ALL of the Paul Weathers/Telepro Industries saleable inventory, bench stock and repairables, we are now fortunate to be the current caretakers of this collection.

We do not repair, test or refurbish these items, and as such make no claims as to condition or mechanical function, unless otherwise stated in the item description. We have priced these items with the assumption that they will be displayed, rebuilt and/or repurposed by the end user.

These are vintage surplus items; no warranty is implied and all sales are final. Please choose carefully and ask any questions before purchase. Please contact our customer service department if you have any questions, we are happy to assist.

Weathers TK2215
New in the Box - Never Used
33 1/3 rpm Turntable
(EQP) WEA-TK2215
SYNCHROMATIC SUPER "66" turntable direct from the 1960's to you. Includes original box, manual and paperwork.

Highlights in the manual include a "Feather-lite solid walnut viscous damped tone arm" with "LDM Stereo Cartridge" which is diamond. Solid walnut base, two synchronous timing motors with independent simultaneous direct drives, precision 12" aluminum platter and a unique "new" shock suspension system are among the other features. Turntable seems to be ready to go with RCA output plugs and standard AC plug.

All sales final. We state this product appears new, albeit from the 60's. No warranty is offered or implied. On the turntable, the old shipping foam rubber stuck to the aluminum deck and the aluminum may be oxidized in places. Even on the best TK2215 the aluminum has no coloration under the arm rather than the normal slight discoloration from age elsewhere on the deck. We believe the original aluminum decks were coated with something that yellowed slightly over the years. The foam pad under the tone arm took this coating off leaving bright aluminum.
$349 each

Weathers Turntable Aluminum Deck and Walnut Base
(EQP) WEA-TK2215B

$25 each
As mentioned at the top of the page, these items were manufacturer bench stock and repairables (circa 1965-1975) purchased from Compass Technical, who had previously purchased Weathers/Telepro inventory.

As such, speakers and speaker boxes, and other wood cased equipment will show shelf wear, may have adhesive residue or dust, and be in general vintage condition. Our customers have had excellent results with cleaning, then lightly sanding the walnut veneer, and applying a light finish of linseed oil to highlight the wood grain. Others have just cleaned up the exterior and left the "age-spots" intact.

Speaker grills on the Bookshelf models, which were attached mostly with Velcro, may be loose, and will certainly be dusty.

None of the intact speakers should be assumed to be in working condition. The speaker boxes may have a Compass tag, wires, stray speakers or other attachments. Selection will be random, but we will try to match appearance and condition for multiple piece purchases until our limited quantity is sold.

Supplies on these one-of-a-kind items are extremely limited. Please choose carefully and ask any questions before purchase. Please contact our customer service department if you have any questions, we are happy to assist.

Thank You for helping us conserve history!
