To accommodate lightweight cartridges, a 5g shaped weight was originally supplied, and a pair of small stand-off nuts that allow the cartridge to sit 5mm away from the headshell. It can be very difficult to set the vertical adjustment without the stand-offs, and the weight improves things with some cartridges. If the stand-offs are missing, very few cartridges are tall enough to permit setting the pillar height correctly, to give a level arm. You can set the height - but then you find that the locating hole for the antiskate corkscrew is below the mounting collar. So, you either get out the Dremel and make another locating hole for the corkscrew, or you put a couple of James Last LPs between the mat and the platter or a DJ slipmat to bring the record nearer the stylus.

Pulling off the platter including spindle takes loosening of the spindle locking screw. Next some gentle tapping on top of spindle with a plastic hammer and we can remove the spindle. Being stuck there for years a little brute force is needed.
What interested me the most was the condition of the idler wheel 1. Thus, all things point to an easy rebuild and google can present us with an abundant amount of inspiration on a new plinth. What seems to be the most likely reincanation is maintaining the base plate, turn it 90o and cover the holes from the lift and tonearm.

Link to bearing. Link to motor. I also tried out my stock mats, an old Thorens which I use for the , a 3 mm kork mat and a 3 mm silicone mat. Eventually I stayed with the old Lenco mat - and I have found my old Michell record clamp again. This all work very well. Turntable or arm? I made a tonearm plinth for the and mounted the 12" Jelko. I never gave the motor and overhaul. I will some day and repeat the test. The Lenco is up to the task. May Turntable upgraded with Moerch DP6 12" red tonearm.

The learning goes like this: Do not use the metal filler seen above, rather glassfiber filler and next: The holes must be made conical to make a smooth transition from the filling to the metal.
Thus, holes must be filed to look like this before adding filler. Well, we must learn something new every day. Metal sheets glued to the rear of top plate with Araldite. Three times filler and sanding leaves a smooth surface ready for spray paint. Click images to view large. I just put it on for the photo-shoot. Before taking back the turntable I added some washers to the counterweight to balance the Canary and had a quick listen.
I fact I had several hours of listening The EPA arm is a gem; no wonder they reach high prices on eBay. And you need a couple of extra arms to fit various cartridges. The magnetic damping of the counter balance is excellent.
