Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum, apart from the time it took me to read every page of the picture gallery in the valve amps section. It's amazing what some people can build!!! This is my first thread & I hope someone has an answer to my query. I've included a very crude picture of the bearing on my new turntable & wondered if I'm right about running the belts higher up the platter? I don't want to automatically think I know better than the manufacturer so I've asked as there could be a very specific reason they designed the motor housing to run the belts at the bottom. The platter is 70mm thick & weighs 7 kilo's but I still think the belt will pull the platter over & cause more metal to metal contact than if run at the top. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
