I tool Matt's advice and contacted Dave Meyers at Overkill Audio.
Dave talked to me on the phone, had me fetch a #2 Phillips
screwdriver and soldering pencil then, he talked me
through the easy fix to get my SP-15 spinning correctly
once again... in 10 minutes...and adjusted the brake in
the deal.  No more  run away speed issue.  Dave is THE MAN,
and a heck of a nice guy to boot.   If you've got any audio
issues, he is the go-to guy.   Thanks Dave and thanks
Matt Sohn for the exceptional reference!
