Get smart, REMOVE the hinges. TAKE the entire cover off when playing a record. That is what I do.

Those are very common and found on a wide range of popular Japanese tables. Some thrift store shopping or garage sale-ing might turn up a few.

This I still do. But not all customers accept this solution, if there are hinges like attached jpg file.

Yes (see post #1), and this leads me to believe, that it must be easy to find out, where Linn (and formerly also Sony), order these parts.

Can you buy replacement hinges through a dealer in replacement parts?

I suspect those hinges would have been made by a small factory in Japan or China that sells directly to manufacturers. If so, you wouldn't be able to buy without meeting a minimum order requirement, which could be hundreds or thousands of hinges. And international payment and shipping and broker fees may be costly. Or not, if it's some guy in Hong Kong or Akiba that takes Paypal and ships by mail.

For what it's worth, the hinges on my ancient Technics 1200's look sturdy (all metal), and wouldn't be that difficult to bolt onto a DIY turntable.

I get the hinges as replacement part very easy - there are a lot of suppliers here in Germany.
As mentioned in my post #1 (sorry for my bad to understand english) I need the associated brand name for catalog ordering by this manufacturer to find out a robuster springed version in top quality but in the same sizes. If I have done this, I will order an amount of 10.000 pcs.

These are the hinges you need. They're all metal and very robust. They came from an old NAD turntable.

Such things I want to have as replacement. Can I use it without additional necessary adjustments?
Are there anywhere a logo or brand name?

There's no name on them or any logo and they fit straight onto my Linn with no modification just like the standard Linn hinge. I can't remember which model of NAD turntable I took them off but I'll try and find out.

The hinges in the last picture you show seems to be the right ones.
