  1. Cheers, I'm really pleased with the results. Started like this:
  2. Finally finished the Goldring Lenco 88 build.
  3. The cleanest hole cuts I have made when building plinths are with Forstner Bits. Highly recommended.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Agree with the Coronet purple label, great sound and quality heavy records. Apparently this is the only record label to use a hexagonal design
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Interesting read, thank you. I have Lencos too and have been keen to try the roadrunner and eagle. It's unfortunate they are not being made anymore and they never seem to come up for sale second hand. Is there anything else on the market that does the same job?
