    New Technics SL-1210 MKII

    Looks like I'm going to be building a new SL-1210 table.... Started gathering parts.... I scored 2 of these but going to sell one. They aint cheap either. Anybody got a 1200/1210 that needs a facelift??? She's brand new in the box, just opened for inspection... FLAWLESS and perty.....

    They are good tables but there are some things which will improve them. Tone arm work and power supply work.

    Since you're building it from the ground up, why not put a different tonearm altogether? SME makes some fine arms as do other manufacturers. You get into some serious money, but some of the tonearms out there leave little to be desired. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the Technics arm. I never had one so I don't know, but I do know there's a lot better.
    Some people are like slinkies; Not really good for anything, but sure bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of steps

    I had good luck with the Rega RB-303. I have one on my TT right now.

    Poping the Plinth

    Well Vinyl Heads, parts are showing up onesey-twosey..... Sat down and set up a table to build the table. Added the first 2 parts to the NOS Plinth. I installed the Pitch Ornament and the dust felt for the pitch control. I have a box showing up from Japan stuffed full of NOS goodies for the SL-1210 build. Here is a shot or two of the project. I can't wait to get some progress on it. I also have the Monster Mono Amp build in work. I need some of Joes electronics but I'll order them NEXT WEEK.

    I picked up 2 parts units since the hardware (screws, bolts, widgets) and the weight/base are hard to come by. I'll use some and lose some. One table, as you'll notice, does NOT have a ToneArm which is the one I'll use for my personal table. I'm putting a Rega Arm on it just like the one I have on my Acrylic RP6/8 clone.

    Yep, they are fugly but I have new motors and all kinds of stuff for them coming so they will be good to go when I finish the 1210's...... SHIT, if I don't sell one, I'm setting up a dance club and I'm getting DJ Nana to play weekends.....

    This looks like it will be a great build thread to follow. The step-by-step progress is something I appreciate seeing. Lee has done a few of those. My eldest son has a couple of SL-1200 MK IIs.

    Nando.

    They can be great tables with some attention.

    Dang Nando, I'm retired so build threads I can do....

    Too bad I'll have more into the one I'm selling although, a new in the box 1200/1210 can go upwards of $2000-$2500
