  1. Thank you so much for these recommendations. I've got about a thousand classical records (and growing) in the collection that I haven't even listened to yet. Found the Grieg piano Concerto and am listening now. Excellent. Keep em coming
  2. For this sort of split: Super thin double sided tape is the best option I've found. You can cut it to the exact size and shape.
  3. Stereo, Mono was all sold out when I ordered last year.
  4. Been waiting for this for a long time.
  5. Cheers, I'm really pleased with the results. Started like this:
  6. Finally finished the Goldring Lenco 88 build.
  7. The cleanest hole cuts I have made when building plinths are with Forstner Bits. Highly recommended.
  8. 36cm high! I'm building one with an aftermarket extra long bearing and it is only 15cm high (without feet). I think those dimensions are a bum steer.
  9. Are you looking for dimensions of the plinth or the top plate? The plinth in the wooden 'box' that the top plate sits upon. There were lots of different plinths made for the Lenco top plate so there are no definitive dimensions for a Lenco plinth. Spend some more time on Lencoheaven I'm sure the answer is there.
  10. Agree with the Coronet purple label, great sound and quality heavy records. Apparently this is the only record label to use a hexagonal design
  11. Agree with you about spade bits however I find hole saw bits to be just as bad. Forstner bits are the best I've used: https://www.bunnings.com.au/ultra-forstner-bit-set-5-pack_p6373522
  12. I don't think there is an 'easy' way. You could build a separate tonearm pod and set up with correct alignment. Here is an interesting diy idea: https://www.lencoheaven.net/forum/index.php?topic=18191.0
