Default the pods are finished except mounting

Just updating you guys on recent progress on my table.

I have my pods completed, I took thinkwall food grade stainless steel pipe welded a bottom into the motor pod about 1/2 inch up and the machinist came up with threding on the tops, gives a nice clean look. The tonearm pod is half the pipe and the other half is part of a copier drum pressed into this then capped in a simular way. I have a secong lower tonearm pod made and i plan on finishing it when my tonearm is done.

Now all i haver to do is get and install a motor and controller.

Here is my drawing i used. I drew it based on Gazzafloyd 's table and teres a bit.
The machine tachnician made a few modifations to it, he used bronze instead of brass. He also used my previous steel bearing mount and machined the grove out of it and pressed in the bronze. This made it cheaper less matrerial removal time and i had the other one allredy mounted.
Use at your own risk, have fun.
