Building a turntable...

I rescued a Revolver turntable that someone had thrown in a bin, its got a Linn Basik LV-S arm fitted, but no cart...

I'm planning a rebuild using the arm, bearing and motor.

It should be straight forward as the only thing I'm doing really is building a new plinth. I'm going to have the motor external though, mounted in its own cylinder so as to try and reduce vibration.

Heres the Revolver before :

I read another post where a Planar 3 was rescued from the curbside as well...

All I ever find are old shoes with the mate missing!:mad:

I rescued an Ariston from the bin. Gave it to a buddy. He made it work & put a Grace 707 on it and is right pleased.

BB, why rebuild it?
if the plinth is in good condition, leave it alone. One of the few plinths that actually worked. Dirt simple...but perhaps a little ugly.

The arm is nothing special, but a reasonable performer, given it's price point (often included with the purchase or the original Revolver Rebel tables). If the bearing and motor are in god or serviceable condition, a definite score.
