    Here are the other 3 collets - They are for Turntable plinth cable exits.



    I have recently made a highly polished Ebony Armboard and fitting kit for an Ortofon AS-212S arm.
    Here it is mounted on my test deck.

    Nice, Steve... It's amazing how it looks so black in the first pic, and so brown in the second one! If I popped down sometime, would you be able to highly polish my armboard like that?

    Have you got the arm, or it is yet to be purloined?

    Just a quick thanks to Steve for sorting out a 12in tonearm I bought, it was a fairly well-constructed DIY effort (as far as it went) but unfinished.

    Steve fixed up an end plug for the wiring to go onto, as well as attending to the earthing, and then sorted out my arm board as well. Lovely job.
