Well being very bright I devised the drive system shown below as I really hate non-current drive devices. Plays a Handel record very well....sounds very realistic!

Close but not there

3 motors just to complicate things still mounted on botom frame which then got platter palava armand balancing dudas mounted on spring of this.
2HP in motor power must be shaking tose springs a fair bit

Consider cheap and nasty 1 motor and Idler Flywheel on single totaly independent floating cradle.
Big heavy platter to take care of inertial forces thing. Fly wheel to shift resonant frequency I can put 2 extra motors on it but that to me is just marketing ploy

Don't be to stupid.....that white thing behind it IS a fridge - ever since the price of heating oil went up to present levels and I spent my pension fund buying a Mississippi steamer for the engine....when I have the other one fitted I will be able to play that new fangled 'stereo' someone told me about. At present I am looking for a wealthy gf (MUST be able to cook and clear water weed from the paddles.)with a totally deaf left ear so that we can hear REAL stereo.

Must go and take a pic of the heavy weight platter for you to drool over!

Just found one taken when I was young!

PS: the record above was from the Stonehenge tour....think they made a film about it.

Like the arm and stylus? Great tracing ability and low mass too and sooo compliant - as must be the gf sought in the above post.

This is my previous turntable, it use to cost a small fortune to power it with hay.

You lucky so and so, I always wanted an automatic arm

EXACTLY why I kept so quite until now about my favourite TT. In fact I am rather proud of it and want to build a compact travel version for when I go jogging....So I did make a prototype but got banned from the road as the horn speakers were beyond the max width allowed on the narrow UK roads.

I also made a more normal version for A/V use but was told that I looked so bright that I was once mistaken for Marty Feldmann.
