It is loose from the board and the board is now supported by an ebbony wall...

1,4 mm (washer) under the board...

I agree with Kevin stick to the magnetic puck, at least until something better comes along. I have been trying to stop mine from wobbling, using Peter's method, for the past 2 days. It is not much better. I am taking mine to a machine shop on monday to see if they have any ideas.

Mine had wobble in two planes and while I could have shaved the platter to get rid of the vertical wobble, the eccentricity in the horizontal plane would have remained. My mechanism could not even read the tocs with the original or much improved clamp mechanism.

Loading and unloading cds was really difficult as well, getting the clamp tight was hard, and getting it loose afterwards was if anything even more difficult..

It looked cool, but the idea is not such a hot one unfortunately. A small weight based set up like that used in some high end Sonys would work better at the possible risk of knackering the lower motor bearing.

...today I picked up clamp no. 1000

I definately want to get rid off the magnet so I am willing to go thru Hell....and believe me I am....this time from a pro shop...made out of a big chunk of acryl....

Anyway this one seems to be the best so far..it gives a rather good alignment..

At the same time I kind-off over engineerd a brake system so I won't have to touch the cd's while handling the puck....you do not want that a very uncomfortable job...

I pressed it home with a drillchuck....using its wheel and some helpfull handmade tools..( wooden clamp en a wooden platform with holes to support the bottom of the motor as "stressfree" as possible........
for me 2.5 mm space from the bearing does the job
(1 mm standard and 1.5 mm for detachment)
