    some more fiddling tonight lol
    the manual says there is no need to oil as it uses oil-less bearings,so i just had to have a look.
    what i found is the normal cup and ball bearing,the bearing sits on a white hard disc (delrin? ).
    the bearing sleeve in the picture is also dry.
    now i can see perhaps that the delrin doesn't need oil but surely the sleeve and cup need some,if only a small drop,
    or should i repeat a thousand times till it sinks in, 'pioneer designed the bearing like this,they know what they are doing,leave the bloody thing alone'.

    The Toshiba has an oiless bearing too, might even be the same motor?, certainly the same as the PL 71's motor.

    Great job from Steve there with the aluminium button Jamie - super.

    Did you ever consider a nice piece of Ebony for the tonearm board Jamie ? would have been a great way to go in my experience - looks and particularly sonics where every little helps

    hi rob,yes thats something i would consider,under the 5mm aluminum plate is a block of 22mm mdf,i could substitute that for ebony or even better would be panzerhotz.

    Panzerholz - yep ! A pig to work with apparently but excellent as an application in terms of hifi - plinths, armboards, record weights and the like
