I stumbled upon this nicely done series of tweaks that were performed on an inexpensive Sony turntable. The guy uses lead bitumin sheets on the plinthe, isolates the transformer, reduces motor vibration by adding foam tape, and adds mass through a MDF base. I especially like the lead bitumin sheet trick, it may be a step up from the clay?http://www.humblehomemadehifi.com/Turntable.html
Chair Guy,Some minds think alike. I played with a similar design that I called the Rudder. It was a small piece of metal, rudder shaped and fastened to the tone arm near the pivot on the bottom side. I then had a small shallow Tupperware container filled with Slick 50.I was brainstorming with the anti-skating issue with my Empire 598 at the time. I came to the conclusion the having a tone arm that swings back and forth easily, may actually be a curse. It must pivot up and down with ease but not side to side.That is why the Dow Corning 1000 centistroke liquid silicone works so well in the AR tone arm well. It damps the vibrations but also retards the sideways motion a slight amount, overcoming the tendency for the arm to fly off towards the center of the record.Any thoughts on this?W
