I don’t know if anyone has responded, but the folks at the Vintage Radio and Communications Museum<https://www.vrcmct.org/> of CT might be interested in this unit. I went there for the first time in February and it was fantastic. I don’t recall seeing a Rek-O-Kut there. If they don’t have one, I’m sure they would be interested. They have an example of just about every other audio and video-related device of the 20th century.

Subject: Lathe available
I received this message recently.
My mother passed and I found a 1960 (estimated date) Rek O Kut Vinyl
Cutting Lathe in perfect condition in her basement. The model # is Imp-2.
It comes in a very large suitcase and when I plugged it in, it came on.
What do you recommend that I do with it? Thank you for the recommendation.
The lathe is located in St. Paul, MN. Let me know if you are interested and
I'll send along the details.
