Thanks ifor

What are you using as feet at present? Are they sprung?

I dont mind adding suspension but if its already there even better

regards

I really don't know what they are. You could ask Richard Fletcher what he fitted < info@vantageaudio.com >.

If it has suspension a slight push down should make it wobble a little bit.

No suspension.  I've taken a foot off and photographed it.  Will post pics later.

RE: My latest project ... and TT #4

Come on then drummerman! How does 'our' Garrard compare to a decent/half decent/budget/rubbish deck? Is my old 86sb worth its rack space? :cheers:

Morning my friend.

Stop fretting and enjoy Smile

I haven't listened to mine for a little while but only because I was busy with the Sony. The Garrard is lovely and compares well with the other turntables. They all have slightly different flavours but are nice in their own ways.

Display with pride

regards

Happy sunday everyone x

Yes, I do think the mechanism adds to the attraction, autenticity and convenience of this turntable. On the other hand, it wont ever give you problems again ... ever Smile

Enjoy

On the other hand, I still, after 30+ yrs, have (most) of the cams, springs, levers & rods which, given the time, enthusiasm & patience, could be used to bring the tt back to its original, authentic condition.....
Nah!

And now I find I don't know how to insert a picture.  Please advise.

Why would it need suspension?  You're supposed to be able to play these turntables in a moving car, but the ownners' manual does advise not changing a record whilst driving!!

Really? Smile

I think you need to upload pictures to a media website such as http://www.mediafire.com/index.php#myfiles and copy them here. At least thats what I do.

Its all a bit of a faff but perhaps I'm wrong.

Would love to see some pictures of your Technics.

Thanks Ifor

No, I got that wrong.  "We do not recommend operating this unit while driving an automobile".
