Hi Dan, make sure you haven't shorted one of the outside crystal pads to the unused centre pad. Did you reconnect the laser ribbon?

dantwomey. I had this problem after having disconnected the laser ribbon. It seems that this needs to be pushed full home to make the thing work, e.g pads amd remote control.

I'm looking for an EZ31 unit if you've still got one available. I emailed you via the forum button.

I would like to share my experience with the RCZ31.

, first listening feel that the sound is not better than my CD-Pro2M unit. T
Thanks thekop for comments.
How do you compare CD-Pro2M to RCZ31 after mods?

You're welcome. I still have one EZ31 parts kit to sell, and the possibility to get three other one, if the is some real interest.

Default clamp update

1. i spoke with the machine shop forman today. he won't give me a definite estimate until i confirm the tolerances on the center hole and the cd shaft. he tentatively said $75 each made out of delran for a run of 50. other materials will raise the cost. have any others been able to obtain a estimate? i will start a group buy thread once i get the final price.

2. i can confirm the center hole measurement for acrylic. the reamer i used worked perfectly. i heated the bottom of the clamp to 120 degrees farenheit (49 degrees C) and it slid on to the motor shaft with a reasonable amount of pressure. going from room temp to 49 C increased the hole daimeter by approx 0.03 mm. i am not sure that the same diameter hole would work with other materials. does anyone know the expansion coefficients for acrylic, lexan, and delran? i could test these materials but this takes time - something i am running short of lately. how do those interested in a clamp feel about this fitting method?

3. i made a puller (see pic) to remove the old clamp. works well. unfortunately i think i bent the motor shaft when trying to remove the clamp before i had made the puller. does anyone have a spare drive motor from a dead mechanism they would be willing to part with?

4. the clamp as it stands does impede screw access significantly. i think the diameter of the bottom section of the clamp should be adjusted accordingly. please make alternative suggestions.

that's it for now. this post was a little rushed but i wanted to update everyone asap.

not everyone will have access to a custom puller. Are there any other options for removing the stock assembly?
