headshell parts
Does anyone know where one can obtain a supply of headshell bayonet connectors ( sme type, male part)? I don't fancy robbing existing 'shells.

I did a search and although this question has been asked before there was no answer.

If you don't find anything closer to home you can get parts here;

Indeed I can get parts, but not THE part I am tallking about. Thanks for the link anyway.

Sorry, thought I saw the bayonet fittings there but now that I look through the page again I was obviously hallucinating!

That's expensive!

Ridiculously expensive.
I was trying to source some from manufacturer's in China, which I did, but minimum quantity was 2000. (A few more than I needed. :o )
Their price was 11 cents each though!

Nice work!

Just realised the ebay auction is STILL not the part innernerd is actually looking for! :headbash:
