    Hi All i think i have just about done what i could afford to do and then pass it on to anyone who wants to buy them off truepoint,, it has been a long slog ,, with help from members, all i can say is now sit back and enjoy the Michell Turtable at its very best , or just leave it the way it was ,, all the upgrades /tweaks can be reversed ,with no problems to the original michell set up , it will always be a Michell Gyro or Michell Orbe,, not mine or truepoints,, thank you for the kind comments on the new armbaords,, which had a bad start with one being made wrong ,and has been sorted out ,, the rest being spot on , i have left all the comments to the users of the armboards and the pylons,, last sets went to the Netherlands , then to liverpool , and canada , armboards to uk , canada ,

    Hi there Peter and AOS friends,

    I'm just in the process of finishing off my Odyssey with the new armboard. The look is fab. The sound for the basic deck is now , well, awesome. I still have to put into effect some tweaks for the base. ( Target speaker spike protecters for the feet together with SDS anti vibration plates. ) A few simple rubber grips to make sure that the motor base stays put appears to work too. My thanks to you Pete, for making a good deck now sound outstanding.
    Aaah, now back to the vinyl, which should keep me going over the next few winter months here in Montreal, where it can go to MINUS 40C, yep that's right! Santa needs his anti-freeze and windscreen washer fluid, which is rated to Minus 45C. A big difference from UK winters.
    To all Michell owners who have these additional parts in their decks, enjoy the extended lease of life which the decks have been given by Peter's contributions.
    Cheers!
    Tad.

    Hi, as I promised here are the photo's of my new arm board from Peter.
    Myself and Alan, (Mad-Moon) are sitting listening to the Korgis and Buffalo Springfield. It is absolutely astonishing the improvement this has made to my Turntable, Alan is sitting with his jaw hitting the floor, and myself.

    hi vince , good to see, i notice you put the spacers back becuse of the height of the carridge i presume, i just designed them , you have to speak to Charlie who makes them and will sell you one, they are all made one at a time, bespoke ,
    due to the nature and the cost of material , time involved , they are not a Cheap thing ,, They are a Full Armboard and not a armboard Ring ,, held on by nylon screws seperated by a o ring , to michell specification ,,although Michell, have nothing to do with the design or manufacture or Gert Pederson
    , it is just logical to make the board out of acrylic,, as long as the weight is correct to what i have been told by Michell , so now you get the benefits of the acrylic made into a full armboard,, with the added weights so the board will be the correct weight ,
    it seems daft to ask how heavey the arm is you are using ,it is so he can work out the weights required , the board is drilled with 12 holes to take 12 weights,, as i have a techno arm i can weigh it with the board ,, until it weighs the correct amount for the board to work,,
    dont be surprised if you are asked by Charlie to weigh the arm you are using ,,

    enjoy the music

    Just to clarify, Pete designed the armboard and I got mine off him but it was made by true point audio
