Default Great guys

Planet, Dice

The reason i brought up Well Tempered because some of Bill Firebaugh's ideas are well suited for a DIY TT. The center bearing design would limit the weight of the platter one can use but you can make a very cog free bearing with his five point bearing. The WTA is a DIY dream one can cobble up one without a lot of specialized tools. Who knows one can probably improve on the original design. I do not think transparent put a lot of effort into it lately. As soon as i get into a low i may start working on an Extremely Well Tempered Design :-)


Just a thought.

Default RABCO

Hi guys,

Quote:
His Rabco is said to outperform a well-adjusted Goldmund T3B.
Quite an achievement!
Any details on the mods?

On this site you will find a standard Rabco mounted on a Thorens TT.
This is about thirty years old I think.

Interesting stuff for the entrepreneur DIY.



Cheers,

Probably my ignorance but can you explain a little more?
