    Default Motor pod




    the motor pod has been altered with a new foot and a spacer to give a weight of about 3kg ,
    there are 2 spiders below the normal plinth ?base with decoupled delrin spacers and the spiders have been decoupled by 1.5mm rubber sheet ,

    all the spiders and the base are Orbe, as the gyro one has 3 screwholes less which the pointed grub screws go through , the whole plint/bas is off an orbe and it still closes with 2 spiders in the inside, the base is 36mm+thick ,the main spiders are 24mm thick and have been laminated together all the bolst are nylon

    Made a little tweak over the Xmas holiday - found some old skateboard wheels in the garage and thought I would see if any improvement with the Orbe could be made - seems to tighten the bass slightly and the noise floor also seems to have dropped - will keep on playing

    Default sketeboard feet

    Well with the cost of new feet being about 30-40 , i have knocked these up with the idea of the Skateboard wheels, and 3 20mm long x the diameter of the hole in the wheels , and M6 nylon bolts , cost is 5 for the wheels and 2.50 p for the spacers ,1 for the bolts , less than 10 and they will also stop the deck from moving ,[IMG][url]https://66lr3g-db3pap001.files.1drv.com

    to stop the deck from moving it is worthwhile, but i have not run the deck yet , as this version has a missing spider , so the top part is sitting on 3x 40mm M6 pointed grub screws , because i have taken it out of the full case,

    well it is upand running , and sounds better then ever i thought i had a problem with too much base , but doing this has tightened the base up so you can hear every note the voicing is now spot on ,
    it maksat out of the case ,but i doubt it as i cannot use the sweep arm , with out having a stand made , but the feet seem to have changed the base notes ,not sure how ,voicing is clear and toe tapping music ,
