    Here's a slightly difference one.

    I'm grafting a 12" Audio Technica arm on to an existing plinth / Thorens 124.
    The arm had no arm lift / rest mechanism so I made a polished carrier, to which I have fitted a Jelco lift and a rest from a SL-1210.
    The arm mounting block that can be seen in the pics is African Blackwood shaped to fit on the back of the plinth as a 2nd arm.





    More pics to follow once the plinth is ready - it's having a bit of a refurb and repaint and it will have a new ebony armboard and FR-24 tonearm fitted.

    Here's the conclusion of the TD-124 two tonearm fitting project I've been working on.
    The Audio Technical 12" ATP12T tonearm is a beauty - the hardwood armpod puts the spindle to pivot at the perfect 242mm distance.
    It's also easy to use with the arm lift and arm rest plate that I fabricated.

    I've also made an ebony armboard for to fit a Fidelity Research FR24 10" tonearm to the deck.
    The plinth was gloss white and as requested I've painted and lacquered it to a matt dark grey.

    I then set up both arms and tested them with my SPUs - A Royal N and Silver Meister and had a listen to check all was perfect.

    I also made an extra Ebony armboard blank if someone needs one

    Here are some pics

















    Keen SPU'ists will note that the AT arm really needs a heavier counterweight for SPU's - I'm not sure what cart will be used yet - Magna Audio of course specialise in customer counter weights to suit all arms.
    The FR24 arm could probably do with a heavier antiskate weight too

    Here is a set of weights (heavier antiskate), lateral and custom mass counterweight for the mighty Fidelity Research FR64s tonearm.
    Made in 303 grade stainless with semi polished finish to match the arm.

    I used the same sized grub screw / hex key sizes as the originals.





    If you have a machining need, I'm happy to discuss.

    Just to say I got the TD124 back from Steve yesterday and he's done a truly fabulous job. AT arm will be used for an SPU, FR arm (which is a cracker - really musical) not quite sure yet!
