"housing" for the ball !

I carried out a polishing of bronze housing with Polishing Cream !

the antiskating is very sensitive, it is necessary to test various weights according to the arm and the cartridge !

I love your turntable! I want it!!!
Please help me to build one...

I'm planning to use SHURE V15 type III cartridge (!), now before crashes, I'd like know what you think about antiskating weight... what't the weight of your antiskating piece?

I'm unable to find in italy your bearing... can you buy it for me in France and send me it? I will send you payment before all!!!

Here's my tonearm (without shell) with your great "pivot" system, but is more long than yours... I prefer 32-35 centimeters from pivot to needle

Thanks for your help!!!

I would like to help you, but the "milling machine operator" has much work, I awaits parts of him since months, I despair !

Here the manufacturing drawing, I hope that that will help you !

verin = "stem of hydraulic actuating cylinder"
Platine soudée = piece of stainless welded onto the axis and machined
Bille = ball (of ball bearing of course)
Bain d'huile = this vacuum is filled with oil "oil bath"
for a better result, it is necessary to rectify the axis and its housing !

Excuse me for the slowness of my answers but my english is very poor !

Don't worry for your english, I'm from italy, I'm trying to write english
I'm unable to find in italy an operator that like to build the bearing... how much is the cost of your bearing?

I've cabled the tonearm with CARDAS Tonearm Wire... for vibrations dampen I've filled up all the arm with very small pieces of felt. Also have used therm-shrinking girdle to cover the aluminium of arm. The result is very good, no little bit of noise I'm planning to use carbonium headshell but is too expensive...

Already have build the platter same as yours, now need only the bearing...and my Roger Waters'es turntable will be on the road!!!

50€ (in cash) without rectified and polishing.
