    Nice. and Nice.

    I have a TD-150MKII A/B that I really should get around to restoring.
    One of the biggest lies ever told was that only certain kinds of people should listen to certain kinds of music.

    Biff's "Sky Room" System

    Technics SL-1200G turntable, Tascam DV-RA1000HD master recorder/disc spinner, Audio Research SP17 preamp, Parasound A 23 power amp, JBL L112 speakers

    And I'm hopefully finally picking up a TD126 MkIV on Monday from a kind PFM member who collected it for me and has been holding on to it for several months.

    I'm not sure I want to do much to it except if the horrible nextel coating on top has gone sticky it's quite a task to get off.

    Old Thorens decks are dead easy to work on and parts generally are in plentiful supply, with one exception, the motors, which are on the most part bomb proof, but they like the decks they sit in are getting on for 50+ years old, if you get a problem it can be a nightmare

    The turntable but i'm in the same boat buddy as my kids enjoy reminding me, seriously though the 150 and 160 are bomb proof with the exception of the motor unit, and they only cause problems that can't be easily fixed if they've been damaged and the spindle has been bent.

    Does anyone make bespoke and/or remanufactured subplatter/spindle/bearing assemblies for the TD150? Or for that matter, platters?

    Platters would be a no, but they don't go wrong, new replacement bearings can be made, i know of someone local to me that can make them or refurb an old one
