    If would take a considerable amount of force to warp an acrylic that thick so doubt it. Also if it's warped it would still wobble if I tension the belt by putting the motor far away. Which it doesn't wobble if I do that. I still think it's the belt we'll see how the replacement goes

    Might contact them and ask the cost

    Emptied the bearing well and checked the 5 bearing points looks good. Also took a video of the platter wobble. Was trying to find 5w oil on the way back home but couldn't find any. But my gut feel is still the belt. Here's the video https://ufile.io/qxu53
  6. Considering how much the EAR cost it's a bit disappointing

    Here's some pics of the spindle and platter without belt attached

    Well it's will sit flat with no belt like yours but when the platter is spinning (by the motor) I just notice it today because I put it in the rack so the platter is on my eye level. It actually wobble to the right when spinning, back and forth from my experiment moving the motor around it seems the belt doesn't have enough tension to hold the platter still. That's why on the picture if I put the motor further away thus tensioning the belt more then the platter became stable while spinning. The Grub location sounds about right but how do you adjust the screw? do you take of the bearing housing? But I think as it stand pretty sure the spindle can stand in the hole perfectly without the platter. It's the same at 8/11 o clock spindle also perfectly flat with platter on and without the belt put on so it looks all good stationary. My feeling keeps points to belt tension considering the platter is stable when I put the motor further away. which ebay store did you get your belt from? Thanks a lot for all the info
  9. Well tempered classic

    Yeah I stretch it to get platter stability. Looks like actually I used 15w-40 oil and the recommendation seems to be 5w. What kind of oil do you use? Might try different oil. Mind taking pictures of the twist?
  10. As far as know cornet 3 is the same with cornet 2 except for the power stage. It uses a DC power plug to save money. But considering how much cornet 2 kit used to cost. Around$1200 USD unbuilt if I'm not mistaken(without enclosure). Cornet 3 plus a good power supply can be had for $1100 Aussie which makes it pretty good value

    @TOPSHELF how's your belt tension? It appears to be really important because of how the bearing is designed to have the right tension to keep the platter from wobbling. Mine is supposed to be newly replaced but doesn't seem to have enough tension. I have to distance the motor from the table quite a bit like this photo to get the right tension. I use 40w motor oil for the bearing well and the level is just enough to cover the top plastic bearing point.
  12. mind you that cornet 3 compared was using a teddy pardo power supply costing as much as the cornet 3 itself

    What price range model are you looking at though?

    Don't know about their turntable but well Tempered Amadeus is made in china by them. So manufacturing wise they know what they're doing
