From the description, I don't see where the variable speed part is made to 
work.

This is the instructions I have for the repair-you can find a helpful 
picture online too - but maybe a different issue - I got the following text 
online - hope it helps - Mickey

The SP-15 has probably garnered a reputation of being Technics "bad boy" 
quite undeservedly. My guess is the precentage of SP-15s that have developed 
problems is quite small. When you consider that a great many saw duty 
working in broadcast stations 24/7/365 for years on end it is quite amazing 
that a large number are still going and have entered the second phase of 
their life in either another commercial setting or serious/well used home 
enviroment. Hopefully this post will dispell the notion that the SP-15 is to 
be avoided. If your handy and somewhat skilled doing soldering it's as 
simple as removing the SP-15 mat and platter, then with a phillips 
screwdriver remove the three screws marked with an arrow on the 
spindle/bearing motor unit. Unplug the spindle/beearing/motor unit from the 
wire harness flip it over and there's the board with the three closely 
spaced solder points that are more than obvious as Dave/Cactuscowboy told 
me. With equipment at hand shouldn't take more than 15 minutes and the SP-15 
will be playing at 33/45/78 dead on. Kent we will take another look at the 
SL-1200Mk2 start/stop button/pad as an alternative replacement part. So far 
it hasn't been a big hardship without the start/stop feature along with the 
brake but I would like to get it 100% functional with these features working 
again. I'v noticed a few SP-15s and also SP-25s that were missing the 
start/stop button and maybe Kent has some insight if this might of been an 
intentional removal when remote start/stop was installed.
