    Default An armpod for a Jelco with ebony armboard

    This one in stealth black to match the deck and its surroundings.

    First the ebony armboard and collar.



    The completed item. This one has extra height adjustment range via the long extending feet.

    I will be making different armboards for the customer in due course to accommodate other arms.

    Default Three jobs for a customer in London

    Next up a range of projects for a customer in London.

    This armbase had seen some wear with the arm pillar retaining screw thread stripped.
    The original solution was not ideal.

    I made a new slightly bigger thread for a grub screw, a second one to beef it up and a third grub screw to properly retain the outer collar.

    Should be good for years to come now.





    Next a Counterweight sleeve to fit over the original and increase the mass by 118g





    Lastly, a rework of the recent armboard I made.
    The tail turned out to be too long. I shortened it to fit. No charge.
    The customer had tried to enlarge the SME slot to take a different armbase.
    I refurbed it to improve the looks and function with a slight slot for adjustment

    Restored



    With larger slot. The SME armbase will still fit of course and cover the hole nicely.

    Default Ebony armboard for a Nakamichi deck and Alphason HR-100 MCS arm

    This one is a 15mm thick disc armboard in ebony for a Nakamichi Turntable and Alphason HR-100 MCS arm.
    The customer supplied a template, shown overlaying the actual armboard.
    The last shot is of it all mounted up on the customer deck.
