Anyone want to try the arm I built?

Yes it looks somewhat rough, it is a prototype in its defence
And there is no cuing lever so it's manual only
And it does seem abit susceptible to picking up static with the wiring being on the outside

Which it wouldn't be if I'd remembered to drill the front section of the arm tube out before assembling it...

I'd value some feedback on it, the idea was that if it proved to be viable and didn't sound like a load of old shite I might start making them. (with changes so it isn't rough as a badgers arse and is actually developed into something someone might want to actually buy. Obviously)

Nobody said that it sounded like a load of old shite at Owston, which was encouraging, but that might have been purely out of politeness :D

It's set up for a 222mm pivot to spindle distance.

Anyone spare abit of time to have a listen?

Cheers ant

Ant, if I had some vinyl I would love to give it a whirl - I hope it turns out well for you. Sorry I can't help more.

C'mon guys, roll-up, roll-up...
