Default Pulley Distances

Dear eldarvanyar please tell me if you can tell me the distance between the centers of the pulleys (motor and plate.) Or maybe the length of the belt ,with that information I can finish my design.
Your design has been really very beautiful. Best regards...

Nice plinth - I may do that myself eventually. I also have a big marble sink cutout that I'm considering using as a base underneath that, but I have to figure out the suspension first.

On my older Planar 2, the distance between the spindle and the center of the pulley is measured around 2-3/4" (70mm). You can search the forum for the arm mounting distance - which arm do you have? IIRC, Rega mounts their arms at 222mm from the spindle center (which matches with what I just measured on my deck).

Hope this helps.

Thanks for info. I am using the Rega RB300. I guess this too should be at 222mm from the spindle
