I could have sworn I saw on your website somewhere that you were working on a turntable main bearing. Was I just dreaming or is it true? If it is true how is it coming?
I was asked to rework a York platter several years ago. The owner dropped it on the ground and dented it so I turned it on the lathe to freshen it up, just the corner needed fixing.bob38138 said:Thank you for all of the replies.
I knew that the Yorke turntable used a 2 bearing set-up, with no abnormal wear issues and it produces world class sound.
I know that there are a number of grades of finish on ball bearings and assuming everything was machined correctly, a high grade ball bearing set-up would produce less friction than a set-up with a single ball and a teflon-type thrust bearing.
I may prototype a daul ball bearing set up and report back to the forum....
