Re: A unipivot made from scrap

There would probably have to be some modification to the chassis plate to allow the mounting boss to be dropped through and to allow access to the setscrews to lock the height adjustment, so some thinking to do. The hole the 75 arm boss fits in isnt very big After some more listening, the grado is g...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

It actually tracks fa...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Just been listening to 3 of the decks with headphones. Playing the track eyes waterfalling off level 42 persuit if accidents. Very interesting (to me at least) is that the 2 lencos sound so similar. Practically the same deck, practically the same arm, and the better one is the one with the dv on. As...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Sorted That was a pain in the rear to get done, had to pull the motor unit out to sort out the power as it wouldn't run. I'd not plugged the wiring back into the IEC socket and it was caught on something. Got there eventually https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51622137328_3febf235b7_k.jpg Cx unipiv...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

turns out it was easier and much faster to sort out the lenco chassis plate than to make a new arm board for the garrard, which didnt have one in it, and i cant find it either. A couple of taps with a rubber mallet on the chassis plate sorted out the misaligned lenco platter The bearing shim must ha...
