  • Motor- Premotec DC
  • Motor Control- Transcriptors

  • Rest of arm= ABEC 9 bearings/thin alu tube-12"

Looks very well put together.

Out of curiosity what is that cartridge? Looks just a little out of place with all of the very fancy kit on that table.

Default Cartridge

It's a Pickering XSV3000-one of the best mm's I've ever used.
