DIY turntable build
 
I’m looking for second hand parts as to what makes and models
Bearing as to which bearing or what’s available out there
something a bit better than run of the mill
A stand alone motor and pulley
A platter to be run on the outside

I hope to make my own
Motor housing again I’m new to this but switch gear or transformer required
Bearing housing
Arm later on once the turntable is made
Arm housing

Any help or shove in the right direction would be appreciated


Cheers Jim

Maybe try the Swap Meet part of the forum?

My thoughts were can’t afford to buy complete turntable all at 1 time but I could buy parts when they appear

To be honest I think you’re kidding yourself, there are some used turn tables out there for very little money but what it will cost you for the parts, especially if you pay postage and then all the time it is going to take you to build it then all the frustration when it doesn’t work very well - all that time could be way better spent doing something else - take the time and do a paper around it and earn the money, the second hand turn table doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to get you going

The Pro-Ject turntable parts from Henley Audio are new - not second hand - and not necessarily inexpensive.

However, they do fit your requirement in that you can buy them one at a time. :cheerful:

Rega has turntable parts along with many after marker parts makers for Rega. You need to give an approximate budget and the skill level you have . A turntable is a simple device but getting everything right, properly fitted is another story. Good luck with your project.

Boot sale? Local swap meet? There's a lot of turntables in the world.

VPI parts come up quite often and are solidly built.
