Default KSM-213QCS - Spindle metal insert?

Hi All,

I have a couple of american audio radius 1000's that both needed a new laser, found out that they used the sony KSM-213qcs so i got a couple, all good apart from 1 little problem that i have run into,

in the top of the spindle (the cd turntable) there is a metal insert that allows the magnet to clamp to it once the cd is loaded and keeps it in place.

one of these i have reused from the old assembly but one of them i cant get out... anyone know where i can get a replacement?? what would it be called? see photos for reference:-

Cheers
Dazzler

You can salvage the part from old junked Sony discmans. Even I have some, I would give you if you can't find a local source...

it seems like it is incredibly hard to find that part... not sure why... im not even sure what that center piece would be called, but they must be a standard size to any player that uses this mechanism??

or do they all use different clamping mech's??

Cheers

That part comes with the spindle motor, and I don't think it is detachable. So your option is to transplant the old motor in the new laser assembly.

If the old mech is scrap have you tried heating the spindle to see if it will pull off, or heating the insert itself ?

In all the many hundreds of similar mechs I have worked on I have never seen that part before but if it is metal it will withstand heat and should detach.

Sorry dazzler, English is not my native language... I meant: take out the complete spindle motor (that has the metal part) from your old CD player mechanism. Then build it into the new CD mechanism that you purchased. The laser might have been deteriorated, but the spindle motor should be good.

yea it looks like that is my only option.

on a side note, if this pickup does not have this insert how does it clamp the cd? on a slot loading player?

Cheers
