I stumbled across this a couple days ago. Someone is taking nonfunctional old turntables and making them into wall clocks. I wish I'd thought of this.
Someone needs to do this with a Micro Seiki RX-1500FVG.....although I suppose that would be a $15,000 wall clock and it'd be a shame to ruin a working one.
