  1. AV/HI Fi Rack Project

    Thanks - so this is your joiner - threaded rod under and countersunk M8 bolt on top?

    Looks great. What did you use to fix the threaded rods to the top panel?
  3. Delete - duplicate post
  4. ...and just what do you do for a job? My lunch locations are typically at my desk looking at a computer screen. Wanna swap jobs?
  5. Need? No [emoji51] Want? Sure. Do we really need half the stuff we buy?
  6. Thanks for the links - will have a look (I did do a search but no search results found so thanks for the links to the old threads too).
  7. Who remembers?

    Our first computer was the Dick Smith VZ200. Programs were saved and loaded onto cassette tape. The plug in on the back in the photo is the 16kb RAM expansion module. That's right, 16 kilobytes!
  8. Where's the best place (online please) to buy good quality inner and outer record sleeves. There's many different ones out there but I don't want to learn by trial and error. Don't want to spend a fortune - just after good quality, well priced sleeves and hoping to get advice from those who have gone through this before.
  9. Bad case of IGD

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I've printed out the Stevenson protractor and the cartridge was a bit skewif at the inner point. It's a bit fiddly trying to get it aligned at both points - I need skinnier fingers and a steadier hand! Seems to have made a little difference but I'm not satisfied that I've got it 100% so l'll do some more fiddling. A new stylus looks reasonably cost effective so might look into that as well.

    Not sure to any of the above being a 2nd hand unit. But, I'll try realigning first and if no luck, will check out the options to replace the stylus or cart as you suggested. Thanks.
  12. Bad case of IGD

    Both are set at 2. The internet says the tracking weight should be set between 1.5 to 3 - so I chose 2 as a nice round number. Does a lighter weight help with IGD?
  13. Bad case of IGD

    New? No, stylus is old (I'm assuming). Bought it 2nd hand. Just did a search on the Stevenson alignment. Will give this a go tomorrow to see how far out it is. Thanks for the tip.
  14. I've got a bad case of IGD (inner groove distortion). It's real nasty. Any vinyl doctors out there got a remedy for me? I'm new to this but this is what I have. Marantz 6350 Shure M95EJ cart Probably all about 30 yrs old as I recently purchased 2nd hand. All (now 6 records!) have the same problem. Where should I start? I'm fairly certain I've set up the cart correctly but.....maybe not.
  15. Great [emoji849]- got one coming from rare waves shortly. Hope it's a flatty. I received an ECM one today from the same eBay seller as the Ben Folds ones (importcds-au) and it's not too bad. Not 100% but pretty good in comparison. I sent them a message about the warped ones - I'll see if they respond before I give them neutral feedback.
