James, thanks for being so comforting! Do you know that "garden bird" means chicken and "auto cycle" means a car in Japanese? I think I better stick to English language articles as I do not intend to put my SP10 MKII on the line so soon.

thanx.

Default SP10 - EMT pictures

diyman,

I have posted five pictures of my Technics SP10 truntable and EMT air bearing tone arm I promised you. I hope these help you figure out how to mount an EMT on your base if you get one. I would suggest making a new base to get the locations right before drilling holes in your stone base.

I will redo my base when time allows but the truntable does not get much use right now so there is no hurry.

You could use a big slab of Lucite...

Default SP10 base

Grey,

Actually I don't know what I will use for a base when I redo it. Right now I'am just to busy with other things and this coming summer I will be tied up with doing more work on our house addition that we started last summer. So I have a lots of time to think about the best way to make a new base.

I'am not familiar with Lucite but have kicked around various ideas with other materials.

John

John,

Some of my friends who built the TERES DIY turntable used acrylic(30mm thick!) laminated to about 2.5 / 3 inches total thickness to a very good effect. We have compared a few materials and found the acrylic gave fairly good acoustic results and is also cosmetically good!

ckt,

Do you or your friends have a source for the thick acrylic that could cut some for me? If so I would arrange to buy some.

I read something about acrylic in the past and that article also stated if was a good material to use.

John
