Re: Quick and dirty PSU

Why not hinges by the way? I'm just curious. I feel like I'm missing something. The point of the lid is to protect the arm/cartridge and reduce the amount of dust on the turntable. When I listen to a record I take the lid off as I feel they sound better without it on. So, hinges are not needed as t...

Re: Quick and dirty PSU

The plan is to put sides on then I will look to have something on the back for mounting to the plinth (not hinges though)
Hopefully all will come obvious soon!

Re: Quick and dirty PSU

Yep - and here is the result. Discovered I need a new jigsaw as mine doesn't keep the blade straight so will have another go once I buy another one but this is a good start. https://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a373/gninnamag/Hifi/New%20Lenco%20Plinth/20190209_172405_zps5ybj6q7l.jpg http://i15.photobu...

Re: Quick and dirty PSU

Put 2 PSU's in parallel to boost the amps and all good - the nichrome now glows red: https://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a373/gninnamag/Hifi/Lashed%20Up%20PSU/20190208_184618_zpswvxpgydk.jpg And it works - bent a test piece perfectly :) http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a373/gninnamag/Hifi/Lashed%20U...

Re: Quick and dirty PSU

The length of the nichrome is around 29 inches so over 2 feet. The power supply module only goes up to 5 amp so not enough grunt. I connected one of the laptop PSU's direct to the nichrome - 19.5v and 11 amp output. Still not enough I have 2 identical PSU's (from Dell laptops) with 19.5v and 11 amp ...

Re: Quick and dirty PSU

Thanks Ed - very informative. I used the gauge of Nichrome based on a forum post of someone who did the same thing (think he used a 22 gauge while min is 24). Anywho - a few pics of the bendy unit I built plus the lashed up PSU - hopefully help you understand what is what! If I can get the PSU worki...

Quick and dirty PSU

Hi All So, having got the Lenco working well in its new plinth felt it missed a perspex cover. Ordered a large sheet of perspex and decided to build a plexiglass bending machine. All good and used an old laptop PSU (19v) but not generating enough grunt to get the Nichrome to glow. Lashed up a PSU us...

Re: Heads-up - Daphile

Shouldn't the title be 'Head-Less' :lol:

Shame it doesn't run on a Raspberry PI as old PC's/laptops tend to be big and noisy (plus I don't have any in the house as all in use).
Does sound to be a good solution though.

Looking forward to your journey.
