AMI Model "K" Restoration
Retro Electronics Home Page
By Chad Hauris: Updated
In the summer of 2004 we
were able to find
some jukeboxes that had been stored in a barn for some time.
These were jukeboxes that were mostly scrap units that had many
parts removed from them. However we did find some that offered
some promise of restoration: A Seeburg LS-2 and a AMI model
JAK-200, or just model K for short. The Seeburg was fairly
complete...cleaning the contacts, lubrication, and new phono
needles got it going good. However the AMI was missing several
parts: the turntable, turntable mount, and turntable motor, and
some cosmetic parts. Click on the photos to go to each section of the
