    Hi Barry bear in mind the RMG-309 Limited you bought from me has the limited edition 'SME' style base not the standard fixed three bolt job from the regular 309i.

    Mind you I think I have a three-bolt base kicking around from an AS-212 which might be the same diameter.

    Hi Tom,

    Yes I know the RMG309i I bought from you uses a sliding bedplate, and indeed it has been fitted onto a 12" Thorens armboard. I have three 12" arms and would like to have them fitted to individual armboards for ease of arm change. Likewise I use several 9" armboards for shorter arms. I have three Thorens 124/II TTs and like to 'dabble' with different arms and cartridges.
