did i make a score or what?

stopped by a second hand store today that ive never been in. picked up a pioneer ct-f9191 cassette deck. this thing has to weigh 30 pounds. filthy dirty, smells like cigarettes, but should clean up nicely. i finally got it to play a tape, there is a gummy build-up on the capstan flywheel that should clean up. im going to replace the belts.
next find is a sony tc 558. no power cord so i couldnt test it. looks clean so i took a chance. made a power cord from an old battery charger cord and a couple of crimp on female spade connectors. powers up and sounds excellent
the seller wanted $50 for the sony, and $30 for the pioneer. walked out with both for $45.
