There pretty common in Europe, not so much in Australia or the states. Well worth keeping a look out for one.
The only parts I used from the original deck is the motor, idler wheel, spindle and platter. The stainless steel top plates are aftermarket and the rest I made. If you buy a European motor I think you can wire it for 110vlts and it will work at 60hz??. With the electronic speed controller it wont mater.

Thanks! I always see pictures of really nice modded ones and have never came across one. I really want to build a table with a long tonearm. The ones I do see on eBay generally seem overpriced, even the ones bring sold as parts. The motor could be adapted.

I fitted my new Karmadon 12" unipivot tonearm......looks bweautiful and sounds great so far. http://www.karmadon.net/shop-2-2/

Also took the whole thing apart again to fix a few things. The wall bracket was a little wonky, so I added an extra screw with a big washer now it doesnt move.

Had another go at the motor to get it running better, a few strategic placed pieces of Sorbothane and some cut up pieces of acoustic foam and it is now nearly silent (have to have my ear against it hear anything)and smooth with no notable exterior vibration.

The back of the tonearm pod with my grace 707, easy to get at.

Might change the arm rest and do something with the base plate.

At first it looked like something chaotic and insane. Then it took its form and turned out to be a steampunk masterpiece! Really cool!

Thanks I like a bit of controlled chaos.

I have the Karmadon tonearm looking and sounding to my liking.

Need a new project.
