Default Has anyone tried to repair a Linn Ittok (bearings)?

Would be interested to hear from anyone who has attempted this, even if the outcome was bad.
Thanks in advance.

I would ask this question over at the Vinyl Engine | The Home of the Turntable - much more likely to run into somebody who has done this successfully or can tell you why you should send it back to Linn to be serviced.

look here: audiomods Rega arm conversion kits and DIY mods

I know you stated you have a Linn Ittok, but the basics are similar. Audiomods even has a "how to guide. Only differences may be the bearing cup sizes.

Hope it helps

While your at it, put some heatshrink over the tube so you won't think it's your phone ringing!
