Vintage DD turntables. Are we living dangerously?

I have just acquired a 32 year old JVC/Victor TT-101 DD turntable after having its lesser brother, the TT-81 for the last year.
This is one of the great DD designs made at a time when the giant Japanese electronics companies like Technics, Denon, JVC/Victor and Pioneer could pour millions of dollars into 'flagship' models to 'enhance' their lower range models which often sold in the millions.
Because of their complexity however.......if they are 'unobtanium'....and they often cannot be repaired.
Dear @bimasta : You are rigth, I over reacted. Obviously I was not in good mood in that moment.  @lewm  sorry for that.

Regards and enjoy the MUSIC NOT DISTORTIONS,
I've also entered geezer land soon to be official senior citizen at 55 yrs in May.  Beats the alternative!

Regarding the original thread title, my TT101 is nearing unuseable state, but spins at 33 rpm still, but even that acting up till it's warm.

Know of anyone who'd be interested in working on this?
Well when I was 25, 55 was a geezer.   I suppose the older we get, the further geezerland moves.   You tell me, what's the cutoff?
