The turntable chassis must be restored. All facets such as the motor need to be disassembled and cleaned with specific care. The motor bearing must be cleaned of all of the old oil and grease then oiled again wealthy in quality oil especially suggested using this bearing system. Inside the finish within the cleaning and reassembling within the parts, the motor is dramatically calmer and works more stable. The primary platter bearing must be disassembled, cleaned and restored. Several components might be replaced: the thrust bearing plate (might be substituted getting a thicker one created from bronze), the paper oil gasket along with the bearing bottom plate. The brand-new primary platter bearing must be oiled wealthy in quality oil acquiring a viscosity which accommodates an extensive temperature band. Introduced on through the bearing restoration could be a more stable and smooth rotation, less mechanical noise along with a system that’s perfectly sealed.
All facets created from rubber (idler wheel, drive belt, rubber decoupling mushrooms, motor suspension dampers) may be meticulously cleaned only using hot water and soap remaining by using any solvent who’ve altered the elasticity within the rubber. This careful cleaning process permitted us to preserve that old parts. Really there’s it’s not necessary to replace them since they work in addition to brand-new ones would.
The switch suppressor condenser should be replaced.
The large and huge plinth with super damping abilities is particularly important given the potency of the Thorens TD 124 chassis. The very best material for the plinth could be a birch plywood. five to six layers of 21 – 24 mm each may be glued with memory glue which gives additional damping characteristics for that plinth. I’m using following unique procedure: 14 tooth decay were dug within the wood body and full of a mix of lead balls, sand and glue. This method adds mass for that structure hence holding, dampens parasitic resonances and vibration without losing natural harmonic richness of analogue instrument. In addition, it balances the responsibility within the entire player. The plinth may be finished having a Rosewood, Mahogany or other veneer. to actually result in the plinth appears like some art you can varnish it with 12 successive layers and completely polish using premium surface coatings.
The entire structure should be transported by spike feet. The spikes let you isolate the tools from exterior vibrations within the atmosphere.
