With the resurgence in this project happening, would anyone be interested in the top plate for an enclosure that is machined to fit around the cd mechanism? I'm talking about something like Peter originally used but in different materials. Wood, plastic, aluminum, copper, etc. If there was enough interest I would be willing to make some. The goal would be to do enough of them to keep the pricing reasonable.

You bet...I'm interested.

I do. It is not easy to get metal work done in HK.

Latest schematic version.
As now there is more space on the board, we have added one more LT1763-5 regulator. This will split digital power -pin 22 from VCO and XO power - pin 6&62 on LC78601.

Tibi

Default Shigaclone using RC-EZ51H

I managed to find a BNIB RC-EZ51H for less than £50 which was delivered yesterday. I got the last one from in stock from Power Direct.

I have stripped it down and can confirm that the control board for the transport is the same as the EZ31, with the same marking and design revisions. There are some differences with the interface/lcd board and the power supply but the important bits are the same.
Iíve stripped it down and getting ready for some mods.

Will post updates.

Thanks! I work in a wood stove import company, I have a small but steady supply of reject, mis-ground stove top cooking griddles.... the top surface is finished on a large drum sander, not completely flat but close enough generally.

I like cast iron because it is pretty dead to vibrations and is an excellent heat sink. Easy to drill and tap as well, but it is a dirty metal.

Cast iron cookware could be an option for weird looking audio projects!
I have to admit I am not expecting an overwhelming positive response to that suggestion!

I kind of caught up with this thread (the bits I understood anyway) and put my name on the list for new boards..., very good idea! I had purchased three laser mechanisms a while ago, I have two left.

Lucky!

I hate to bring this up (especially if it's already been discussed within these 500+ pages! ), but do we know if the SF-P101 mechanism many of us late adopters will wind up using is as good as the original EZ31 that Peter used?

I'd been following this thread for years but never had the guts to try it before. The thing that interested me the most was Peter's indication that this little project bettered (in his opinion) his own ML 31.5 and similar high end transports. I'm hoping the same will hold true for those of us who use the SF-P101.

tonyptony,

SF-P101 is not an ®adopted® mechanism, it is exactly the same cd mechanism used in original Shigaraki transport.
EZ31 and few other boomboxes have same SF-P101 inside.

Regards,
Tibi
