Default FS: Brand New Scheu Turntable Motor

I have for sale a brand new, unused Scheu DC turntable motor. Includes the pulley and bare motor with 2 attenuators and instructions in german (the pictures are easy enough to follow....its not complicated).

This is the motor supplied with the very well regarded Scheu turntable kits!

I'd like to get $85 shipped for it.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!

-Jim

Hi,

if you have problems translating the manual or connecting the motor, you are invited to ask me. I have experience with these motors (and two for sale ) and am native German speaker.

BTW, did you know, that this motor has originally been designed for secret service equipment? (Around my corner, here in Dresden. http://www.frauenkirche-dresden.de/ )

Cheers
Christian.

Thanks Christian, that's very kind of you. How do you like/rate the Sheu motor? BTW I've been in Dresden as a child, I'm originally from Poland (Tarnow) and used to tour around europe, asia and the middle east with my uncle, he's a TIR driver. I like interesting facts as the one you posted.

Cheers,
Bart

Hi,

I tried several approaches driving my platter, in general it is three of them

1) DC PLL regulated (Scheu)

2) DC voltage regulated (Maxon)

3) AC synchronous (Rega, JR Transrotor)

The Scheu motor is good in several ways:

it is almost silent
it does not vibrate at all
it has no ball bearings (plain bearing in English?)
it is speed stable
its performance is independent of power supply quality.

The only thing to complain is that it is no longer produced
no, there are minor disadvantages;

the motor was originally produced for tape decks; therefore it could be bit bigger for TTs; you better do not load the bearing of the motor too much.

and: sometimes, the motor runs at twice the speed, due to some pll fault i guess. This happens to the tape deck of my friend, too. Scheu owners did not report that failure.

Do not use rubber belt with it, use "invisible sewing thread", a slim polyamide string.

Cheers
Christian.

the Scheu motor comes from a particular cassette tape deck, so (at least in germany) you can buy replacement types for that, but I do not recommend it. Considering the full service and warranty the price at Scheu is fair enough.

Cheers
Christian
