If you will replace the bearing oil clean the shaft and housing well.Start with a few drops of new oil and fit the sub platter slowly.If it goes down very easily,put a few more drops of oil,till the sub platter goes in slowly and some oil comes out of the housing.This way you'll be sure that the housing is filled completely.

I got the AT110e today, set it up and dialled it in, and it sounds great. I expect it will take a while before it settles down and the highs get a little less bright, but it already sounds great!

I filled the bearing housing with sewing machine oil, but unfortunately there is a bit of movement in the platter when it's seated. There are two nylon bushes, and I think the lower one is pretty worn out, the top one fits very snugly. I am thinking of getting a new one made. What kind of clearance should I go for around the bearing shaft?

If it all costs too much, I was going to find a Thorens TD 160 in the area, and fit my Linn arm.

Try a thicker oil.It is recommended for bearings with not so tight tolerances.
