Default why?

trying to make a cosmetic clone of one. There are better tables to emulate if that's the case.

There are those that have made new plinths for rega turntables. Do a search, I'm sure someone who has done will would be willing to help out.

Umm, *which* Rega?

On my older Planar2 the plinth is about 1 inch thick. The spindle is about 6-5/8 inches from the left edge and about 7-1/8 inches from the front edge.

If you are building a replacement base, then the thickness can be taken by measuring the thread height on the bearing. The other two measurements don't really matter that much, although you should probably make it long enough to where the platter doesn't overhang.

More important is the spindle to arm pivot distance, which is specific to the tone arm. For Rega arms, it should be 222mm.

Hope this helps,

Bill Rankin
