So the plinth has dry up and I made the upper-plate to fit the frame, now a quick fit to see how it will look like.

looks cool a slate plinth.

I done a small angle to the top and bottom plate with the router.

No, it's from OMA's site, but I really like this setup, and have been in touch with OMA about the plinth. They ship worldwide, with no breakage. Kevin has that tonearm ... it's superb. OMA's solution, with the tonearm mount separated from the chassis of the TD124, ensures a serious reduction in mechanical noise transmitted to the arm. I've seen measurements of 15dB reduction.

This one is mine, I had it painted in British Racing Green:

Well that is what I thought about mine too, disassembling my unit which had probably less than even 100 hrs of use showed that there was a lot of congealed lubricant in the motor bearings - and no amount of oil is going to fix that. The old bearings can be cleaned and reused if not worn, and the result long term is worth it. I'm by no means the originator of this pearl of wisdom, but I have found the truth in it - five motors so far. The motor should run much quieter and cooler with a proper service even if you replace no parts.

That arm goes along with the beogram 3000? Looks great minimalistic.

It's a very good arm and in fact my table and arm will be going into a very similar slate plinth (not OMA) for exactly the same reasons. I'll post a picture once it is finished.

It's the pro-version of the Beogram arm of the time, called the ST/P, 12" arm, for radio stations and studios. Very pleased with the soundstage it delivers, but believe it will do an even better job when mounted on a slate plinth, isolated from the TD124, I'm thinking of doing that - and did have a Schick in mind before Kevin got his (so not copying, Kevin - emulating!)
