    i have been using the TPA psu , with out a doubt a good piece of kit , the cost is about the same as the HR , but with more control , it has fine adjustment to the front via 2 buttons,marked fast and slow, the 3 speed buttons mean i no longer have to move the belt, i had TPA make a single pulley now i don't need to flip the belt from one grove to another ,

    TPA are busy with the making of bespoke HiFi gear , don't expect delivery the next day or week , all with the help of satisfied customers , i was glad i found them to machine the pylons and sell them,he has a lot to make,

    to keep this going , i have been experimenting with the same material TPA make the Pink Triangle arm boards from , it is not thick enough to make the arm board for the Michell , there are a lot of isolation devices for tone arms /cartridge devices , i have used several different pieces of material trying to decouple the cartridge from the arm for vibration purposes, not physically , but with limited success, the best i was told was the Cartridge mans isolation device, using a composite device of foam and stainless steel , the latest version used nylon pins, and threaded screws into the head shell the cartidge located with the use off the 2 nylon pins and double sided tapped to the device , i though of another way of doing this, and wanted to contact Len Gregory aka cartridge man , but sadly he has passed away last year , the idea may not go forward , it needed some one like Len to test ,and also i would not be treading on any ones fingers,

    instead i have simply used the Composite carbon fiber and foam board and placed 2 2.5 mm holes at 2.7 mm center, this is now out for test , the mk2 for fixed head arms will need to be worked on a lot more , with the slot needing to be accurately lined up with the fixing holes ,

    it is early days but the signs are very good for the fixed version ,
    any suggestions to improve the Michell Turntables are welcome, on this thread ,
