Update

Its snail speed progress. But it's there. I finally got time to assemble everything together. Need some adjustments. 4mm sheet thick is too much and reduces gap between plater and base to zero. Need to machine bearing mounting area.

Finally paint and polishing.

very nice ! you seem to be using the PTP6. I am pretty sure the Naim Aro would be a fantastic combination with this !

One suggestion, wind some plumbing tape around the idler wheel arm to damp vibrations.

Is that a brass front plate ? I am looking for a brass or golden colored plate like this ( custom dimensions). Not particular about thickness and even 1-2mm are fine. Any pointers ?

what lovely work, quick query - would the idler constantly engage with the platter rim or have you factored in the on/off lever?

Thank you!. Will use teflon tape on idler wheel arm. Its PTP 6 copy.

Naim ARO is on shelf, not finding good machining guy who can work on my tolerances, small size parts, quantity that 1 and price which is affordable. But I keep sending it for quotation, never know someone might do it. I will be using Ortofon SMG 212.

Its SS front plate laser cut. Brass sheets are available in 2mm.

Nishant

Update: Paint job finished. Thank you for Advice Sadiks.

I prepared wood as per Sadiks instruction and got painting done from automotive paint shop. As I dont have spray paint facility.

It’s my 1st Polishing job. I am satisfied with result.
