ebony armbase.jpgI am a new member from Holland. I can read german ok but cannot write it.
Long time ago i bought a special Scheu plattenspieler in Wuppertal and now i want to assemble it.
The original plan was to use a fidelity research 64s tonarm with spu gold. I wanted a bigger teller but i didnt have the 66S so i asked Thomas to make a special teller.
Now i decided to change the arm into a groovemaster 12 inch arm. With the 64S i used a special rostfrei stahl '' clamp '' to mount the arm much better than the original one. Someone told me to use ebony holz and no metal so i asked a company in England to make it for me.
Maybe it is a little bit to high so i need move up the part that holds the lagerbuchse.
I know there is a 8 mm schraube to attach it to the zarge. Can i just hold the alumium ring that is close to the zarge and unwind the m8? After that that i can add an extra '' ring'' made from alumium ( i work in a metal company) or ebony and use a longer m8.
I saw somewhere on this site someone used a messing ring on his wooden zarge but i wanna keep using the original acrylic zarge. I still have the 100 or 110 mm black circle you can see in the original Scheu photo. I can also a small circle same diameter as the alumium one and add a big circle same seize as the one below the kettingkasten and fill that with bleikugeln.
I also need to replace the original spikes because my phonostage will be partly positioned under the Scheu. I am thinking about seismic isolation pods ,magnetic levitation feet or sorbothane halbe kugeln ( 50mmm). My turntable is in a rack mounted in four corners so it is sturdy construction. Can carry my weight 86 kilo easily!.
In the past me and my friends did several test with high mass turntables and most of the time an old Thorends TD125 with a heavier zarge would be much better so. My Scheu will be about 20 25 kilo but i think it will benefit from some kind of isolation other than just mass.
Please share your ideas in German language.
