    I have an SL-1300 and 1350 but both are here to be used...I'd be using the Sony PS-4300 Ron sold me but after the clamp on the arm rest broke and I had it apart to work on one of my kin moved my stuff helping me clean and 1/2 of the two piece bottom just disappeared. That was good money and a great phonograph too, I'm still looking for that part.

    EDIT: The bottom, not the arm rest, I can find that.

    If I don't really exist then at over 15,000 posts my nothingness has longevity, if not serious mojo.

    I did at first. Then I thought about audiophiles spending more than that on a single capacitor in a crossover network.
    To each his own & have fun while doing it! It's only money as they say.

    It might look and perform like ass......

    I have found blasted and powder coated (like the original) for about $200. If you are building an as close to perfect turntable then who cares about money. I used to spend more money restoring my cars than they were EVER gonna be worth.....
    I had the nations problems figured out one night while on blah blah blah........ huh?

    Cars can love you back... turntables, not so much. Ever slept with/in a car, before?

    But, I like how you've approached this build. My son would also get a kick out of your project, too. He is a Technics 1200 loyalist.

    I spent two days sleeping in my car that didn't even run when I was out of a place. And the reason I'm a 'bicycle boy' is because $3.00/gallon gas in 2006 or '07 only drove home the fact that while I owned the car outright the costs of fueling, repairing and insuring it were basically the cause of all my debts. Not a good feeling, it was Pontiac FTW with 3.1 EFI and a paradise for the lead footed. Selling that car I got from my mom was something I didn't want to do and she didn't understand at first.

    Last Christmastime someone pulled in front of her and totaled her Buick. She got a really nice Toyota Avalon but has to make payments now. She couldn't afford to come over often before but now she can't afford it at all since it hit $3.00 again.

    If I COULD afford it there is a 1938 Plymouth around here for $1900 with mag wheels and it could be the coolest hybrid with suicide doors EVER. Even better than the '55 Savoy business coupe I saw.

    Just finishing up the 1210 this evening. I'll post some pics later. It needs a stylus but complete otherwise. No hinged dust cover Installed, I'm not a fan of them, but I do have one. Just needs a good buffing.
