You are probably not going to find a turntable that accepts 16" discs short
of a professional quality broadcast turntable such as Technics, Panasonic, SME

storage, and/or reference access.
Discs should also be cleaned prior to transfer for preservation, an often
expensive and troublesome procedure.

I do provide these services and many others on the list can refer you to
