Default Lid Hinges for Linn (LP-12) Thorens and Sony Turntables - repair?? orig. brand wanted

I want to know the brand name of the manufacturer of bad quality springed lid hinges (dust cover hinges) for Linn record player (turntable, e. g. LP12)
Type: 2F-037/H (2-F-037-H)
identical to Sony part, number "4-852-704-11" (appropriate for the turntable models PS-T3, PS-T33, PSX-45 and PSX-55S)
and Thorens TD320, TD318, TD147.

I need this brand name for catalog ordering to find out robuster springed version in top quality but in the same sizes.

Here some images of the worse original versions:

and a explicit repair instruction of a Linn Sondek dust cover hinge repair
Linn Sondek Dust Cover Hinge Repair - Club Polk
Linn LP 12 Dustcover Hinges - SH Forums

To know the name and address of this hinge brand would be very interested (also for guys, who intend to create their own high end record player). Perhaps the brand of the Linn orig. Part 2F37H offers a wide range of such dust cover hinges from cheap to expensive respective from low quality to top quality. Because the hinge version from Linn Sondek was used from much other companies, the manufacturer must be a good known brand name.

Thank you very much for your advives.

This is probably your best bet.

George Merrill did AR turntable upgrades for years. The AR hinge is the same as the Linn. It can't hurt to ask.

How about a pair of suitable gas pistons and regular hinges?

good idea for new projects, but not for replace purposes.

Default Brand Name for 2-F-037-H still wanted

from the listed brands about
Spring loaded Dust Cover Hinges for homebrew DIY Record Players Turntables
nobody delivers the 2-F-037-H resp. stronger versions.
From where comes this hinge model (read also post #1)?
