Default Thorens TD-125 LB armboard dim's

I am about to refurbish a TD-125, and will also be making a new plinth. I was thinking of maybe making the plinth to also fit the LB armboard, but have not been able ti find the dim's for this.Also - does anyone know if there are some additional fixings except the usual three screews?

Best I can remember just the screws.. Check on Vinyl Engine - The Home of the Turntable , you need to be a member to access the library but I suspect there is plenty of useful information and probably a template there for making the plinth.

I didn't understand the arm board question, perhaps I'm dense.

I have a TD125 and there are only three screws holding the arm board. I installed a Mayware Formula 4 arm and had to make a new arm board of plywood. You really need a table saw and drill press to make sure the new board is perfectly rectangular and the screw holes are perfectly vertical.

Also, check theanalogdepartment.com website. Lots of detail on Thorens tables. As to the question, I believe that only one thrust plate was used for all versions of the td-125. That had three screw holes. Wider arm boards attached the same way as the standard size.
