Default Finally finished

I have finally completed my turntable project. I still have some bugs to work out with the tonearn and alignment. But the table is completed and working. As you can see on the right i have a old peice of test equiptment that has a 24volt transformer in it that i converted to my power supply/ motor controll unit. It houses a Mark Kellly group buy pc set. The larger board is visible through the cage on top while the adjustment is on the bottom accessable by turning the unit on its side. I plan on either mounting a dummy tube in it as a indicator light or something else that looks cool. The motor pod is a maxon (group buy) motor with it half full of shot gun buck shot. Runs quiet and sounds great. I will be posting some more detailed pics shortly.
Thanks
FortyTwo

Default Bottom View

Here is the bottom View of the power supply. I mounted the pcb by bending 14 guage (house wire) solid copper wire with loops on the ends. Soldered the loops togehther and bent into place. I can now bend the board out slightly to gain acess to the adjustment pots.

No sorry that is my original Rega RB200 with a weird headshell. I plan on finishing my arm next. I have half of the peices made but still having trouble finding the right bearings.

Default can I help with the "right" bearings?

check ouyt the usual suspects, McMastr&Carr, Small Parts Inc., etc. .


Let me know what ya need and I'll see if I can help. Nice looking pieces for the gimbal, but light in weight.... wouldn't extra mass at the pivot help reduce effects of inertia on the arm?(just a thought)

good luck with the tonearm, the table looks absolutely great.
