I was thinking about that but I wasnt sure if making one out of aluminum would be a good idea since most cd pucks are made out of some sort of plastic

Hi all,
Ok, so here's a template I drew up - it's as close as I could get, but I drilled/cut my top plate to it and it fits well. BTW, this is for the mechanism without the plastic cover. Just remember (1) if you lay it out from the backside, reverse the drawing, (2) make sure you print it out at 100% (check it before you cut), and (3) from a mechanical drawing point of view, its over-dimensioned, but this way you can start from whatever reference you want.

The two left wheels are not used.That side is placed on air cushion.

Default re-clock

Hey, here's my re-clock circuit.


Click the image to open in full size.

Just need a couple more connections, then I could test it.

Ingenious and original. I like it! What is considered the "air cushion", the fact that the transport is suspended from the rods or there is a place on the left side (that I don't see) where there are no contact.

I would have so many questions because I'm curious but I'll keep a reserve. Did you isolate the motors or plan onto?

Is this the prototype or final product? If you plan to bring it to a better level, it is a nice challenge.

Keep it up!

Thanks,

Thanks, I am glad that you like it.That aluminium angle on the left side is the air cushion but the air holes can't be seen because I have covered unused part with tape to make cushion more effective.Search for Terminator arm to see what kind of cushion it is.Decoupling is made through the rods but vibrations are compensated with wheels and cushion.Don't have plans to isolate motor because I have bonded both with thick layer of teflon tape with good sonic result,but who knows....The metal frame is clamped with two halves of carbon tubes attached together with screws.This is an infinite prototype since the new changes are coming often and I hate boxes because of sound degradation.Most of my system is without boxes.

This is a screw puck.It is made of carbon too.The mas of the puck is little bit less than one cd disc.I have removed the metal part on the plastic cd holder and inserted a carbon ring to make holder as rigid as possible.Puck can be made easy.Just cut one 12mm and one 15mm peace of tube and then make a 6mm thread on 12mm part so it can clamp that horizontal 15 mm part.The diameter of the tube is 28mm.You just have to insert a 6mm screw in the plastic holder hole.When you screw it you center it but you can miss some mm because it so light that it can't cause extra vibrations.It sounds better than plexy and magnet that I tried.I think that lower mass is what that transport need.I have tried hi mass transport configuration but I didn't liked it at all.That rod-air version is correct version to me.We can not eliminate vibrations completly so why don't control them here and there to find some intersinergy instead to kill them completly and some music by the way.

Default Call me esoteric,but ...

Hi all,

you probably don't really mind but I read the whole thread from A-Z and at this point I decided I wanted one:

Click the image to open in full size.

Call me esoteric, but I have rarely seen a more "scandinavian" design... you'll have to tell me about that audio1st ... is that an elk ?

EZ's are on order for building 2 clones, one for myself which will be "heavily inspired" by the one pictured above and another one (no decision yet on final design) for my cousin pierre aka WaveFlex in the speaker section.

He made me a birthday present in the form of a kit for some sexy bookshelf cabinets using translam/CNC as for these:

Troels' PMS (multilayer assembly) build thread

My design is more like this one actually but with increased volume to suit the Vifa PL14 (sorry for the forum beeing french, but you get an idea scrolling down having a look at the pics)

Inspiration "SA2K" avec caisses LEGO - Enceintes

Guess what his birthday present will be...

Thanks to Peter for starting this thread and to everybody contributing to it!

Cheers,

Max
