Default Anyone have a diagram of the Linn top plate?

Help!

I need this so that I can drill some holes in a top plate that I am fabricating - does anyone have a outline of the Linn LP12 top plate?

Default Linn LP12 Metal Top Plate

Hi
Happen to have a Linn LP12 top plate somewhere.
Give me a couple of days and I'll have a drawing (PDF) for you.

Cheers

Ketil

Thanks, but I'm actually looking for something with the holes included. Sorry!

Default Linn LP 12 Diagram

Here is the PDF with the measurements for the LP 12 topplate.
Sorry about the delay, but easter and 3 days of rock festival takes its toll when you behave like you're 25 and forget that you're 46. (As I said to my friend Mick, we should never have smoked that last spliff. Anyway it was good fun and I think it is very important to hear live music. ( I'm so lucky beeing married to a classical violinist, so I hear most of her gigs, like The Australian Brandenburg etc. for free)

The drawing is the Linn LP12 top plate as seen from underneath. The plate is 1.5mm stainless. All measurements are in millimeter with the holes grey and the diameter in red text. All measurements are done with a caliper and a steel ruler, and should be within +/- 0.1 mm ( Take into account that this is seen with 46 year old eyes). The only critical positions are the three holes that holds the suspension. The two holes with in blue have a tread that seems to be UNF and slightly smaller than 3mm (Metric). These holes
are for the vertical angle adjustment of the motor, so I guess two 3mm hex (Unbraco) screws will do the job.

There are a few good websites for Linn LP 12 like www.sondek-turntable.com and www.originlive.com.

In addition, I have the setup manual as a word doc, so tell me if you need a copy.

Good luck and all the best.

Ketil

Wow... Thank you so very much!

Would you mind me asking how you made the above file? And what does UNF stand for?

Cheers!

Default UNF

Hi J.C.

UNF is as far as I know an American standard for tread on nuts and bolts.

UNC is the coarse tread and UNF is the fine.

The file is made by a program called Corel Draw. v.12. and it can export PDFs. Apart from the program, some time, a ruler, a caliper and reading glasses in addition to a Linn top plate that has been living in boxes since 1985 (Thats when I gutted and rebuildt my Linn).


Cheers

Ketil

Ketil,

Corel wouldn't happen to be able to come up with image files now would it? It would be great because I cannot edit PDFs.
