Default DIY Personal Turntable

Here is the drawing of my DIY turntable. I have just finished the drawings and started doing the different pieces. The main part is in "graphite". I'll got them tomorrow. I will post every details with photos and drawings of each pieces.
I just also want to apologize for my English. I try to do my best to be understand, and also undarstand.
OK, so here is the main drawing:

Beautiful drawings and I like a lot of the ideas in the design. What kind of bearing are you using in the arm?

If my French were as good as your English, I would be quite proud of myself.

What a main bearing, almost the work of a self-tailing winch designer.

(a Cabestan Tourbillon vertical wrist watch would look nice with this turntable )

Hi Dtut,
And thanks a lot. The tangential tonearm is the "black part". I must take a big care in realisation. The bearings are: SKF LBBS 16-21S, and the rod is in stainless stell 304L with chrome application to get Ra 0.2 surface tolerance.

Hi Jacco, the main bearings are 6000 series and they will work into oil in order to decrease noises. All pieces are will be made in stainless steel, PEHD500, except tonearm (in aluminium AG3, or AU4G). Each pieces use O'rings for noise isolation. And the main plate is done with two pieces using silent blocs.

Good look with the bearings on the main spindle, low rotational speed and thick oil might help reduce the noise, remove the seals from them as well.

OK, another problem solved. I've got my main pieces yesterday afternoon (see photos). It was the company who had done my kitchen a few years ago. I've got them for the price of 3 or 4 coffees . I want to thanks them a lot ( http://www.marbreriegomet.fr ).
