    Just to say Steve very pleased with the armboard you did for me for a Technics SL-150 MkII I've been setting up for my son ... now sporting a rather nice RB250 with Expressimo Audio mods (brass end stub and half moon counterweight). The MkII is a rare beast, much more highly specificed than the MkI, but armboards are simply not available for them .. this was a tricky one as to get the VTA right it had to be lower than the original, but not too low ... this is spot on. I was actually amazed at how good this sounds now.

    That's cool, glad it worked out so nicely.
    Have you put the headshell I restored to good use too?
