    Customer pics of the recent Ebony armboard I made for his Technics SL-120 deck and Alphason HR100s tonearm.
    He's based on Hong Kong and wrote "I am very happy to own it."

    A second armpod under construction for a return customer - when one extra arm just won't do

    Tube is prepped and 7kgs of lead cast.

    These pods are super heavy and stable



    Glass Fibre / Polyester resin topped for strength and stability.



    Turning the armpod feet from brass.



    3 feet discs ready



    Threaded for precision, knurled for grip.



    Next up armtube lacquering process underway. This one will be satin black.



    More to follow..

    Here's one I finished before Christmas..

    African Blackwood armboard for the new Technics SL-1200GR deck.
    The arm is an Audiomods series 5 with VTA adjustment. Rega fitting.

    It is a tough fit due to the size and position of the VTA adjustment assembly.
    The armboard fitting is quite different to the SL -12X0 series too.
    No problem for me

    This is a trial fitting pic. Finishing yet to go.



    Seen here alongside the original 1200 GR arm.



    This one is from the customer all set up and playing



    He is a happy bunny.

    I made a template armboard so I can recreate again if anyone wants an ebony or ABW armboard for the SL-1200GR.

    The armpod is ready.
    Will be collected next week.

    Atop of the solid ebony armboard is a Audio Technica AT 1005 MkII.
    The arm will also be getting a new polished stainless steel armlift carrier - more on that later.

    Here is the 7kgs+ pod. Height adjustable +/- 10mm.

    Here's a brushed Stainless steel tonearm damper weight, bound for the USA.
    Fits atop the Fidelity Research FR64s tonearm. This one features a composite insert that's not too hard and not too soft to dampen any micro vibrations that could occur metal to metal.
