Hello everyone, as explained in my introduction post a few months ago I have an ITAME branded Russco turntable I want to bring back to life. I decided to create this new thread to not litter the presentation's subforum. Right now the project state is this: Done: Motor turns General cleaning To-do: Plinth Idle wheel rounding Paint "45" light Cabling Doing: Headshell & cartridge I couldn't find a suitable replacement for the headshell and ditching the whole tonearm seemed wasteful (at least at my current economic status) so I decided to build one from scratch. To faster iterate in the design and correct mistakes without having to remake an aluminium part I designed the part on my computer and printed it to test the fit. This is the current state of the design. I'm still waiting for a cartridge to arrive so I can set the tracking weight properly. The design is not tested so I haven't shared the files anywhere, however, if someone wants to print their own just ask. After that I'll either leave it in plastic if I'm satisfied with the way it works (probably printed in some other colour) or I'll try to cast it in aluminium with the "lost PLA" method or maybe file it from some block. If anybody has some recommendations about this whole thing please share them with me. Abstain about commenting without feedback, I know this is far from ideal but this is a as-low-as-possible-budget project.
