You forgot the penny taped to the cartridge headshell to keep it from skating!

My first tt was a Garrard changer. I had a "45 RPM Adapter" that I would slide over the center spindle. Unless I positioned the 45's perfectly they wouldn't drop down properly. It wasn't until I went away to college that I learned that stacking records wears them out.
You also didnt't mention the big red brush I would clip to the headshell to pick up the dust. Ah, those were the days...
Sure, tracking force had three adjustments: dime, penny, and nickle! Do you also remember double record albums that were pressed for ease of use with a multiple play spindle? One LP was pressed with sides 1 and 4, the other LP with sides 2 and 3. This allowed you to grab the 2 LP's off the spindle after side 2 had played, and you could just flip over the stack of LP's, so that now sides 3 and 4 were in proper play sequence! Also, not too good for the care and longevity of the vinyl!
