Yes brass (non-ferrous) because I think I can turn the parts with the tools I have. I would lacquer it to prevent the tarnishing.

Of course, I think I need to find a decent TT first. Building this first would be putting the cart before the horse. I am looking at the thorens models.

I like building things in my head, you know, figuring out how something is made, researching the materials and sourcing, figuring out how I could build it with the tools I have. Then, determining that I can build it, file away the info for the opportune time.

I'm pretty sure that I'm the only one that does this.

Thanks again.

Look at it this way, it gives you something to do till you got your TT

That looks very cool. I take it you have access/own milling machines?

Yes, i've got acces to C.N.C. lathes and milling machines.
Although this shouldn't be to difficult on a conventional lathe.

I made this drawing over a year ago, but didn't know much about a TT. So i started modifying my Thorens, to get a better understanding of how a TT works. All i have to do now is modify the tonearm on my Thorens, so i understand the basics of that too. Than i can start to build a proper TT.
