  1. Thanks acg, that's a good Idea. I've found that the shaft has comes out of the motor mount sometimes as well. Something is pull the shaft away. What I think was happening when the record stack shifted is that the outside nut rubbed on the frame after the shaft moved out. I might have to put some earplugs in and sit there and watch a session.
  2. I think it's the plate the motor is mounted to. It's not quite vertical. I'll bend it a bit and see if that helps.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, it's turning clockwise. I've propped up one side to give a bit of tilt back toward the motor. If that works I'll do as Citroen suggests and lower the motor a bit.
  4. I'm having an issue where the records are working their way over away from the motor and sometimes the hand nut coming up against the frame and then it all stops rotating. The cleaner is on a flat surface and I've tried with different tension when clamping the records and spacers together. The last batch I did last night I tightened it the most I have so far and rather than the bundle of records and spacers working over the whole shaft shifted and fell out of the motor. I have the motor rotating clockwise and the frame isn't moving so the outside of the records are not rubbing on the tank. It's got me scratching my head. Anyone else had this?
  5. I try not to double up but for something I really like. I did find what I thought was a barging for a box set of all of the Tragically Hip on vinyl. I have most of their stuff on cd but the box set on Amazon Canada was half the price I could find it in Australia. Fortuitously the purchase coincides with a trip back home to visit next month.
  6. One day only on last Saturday for Record Store Day (I didn't even know that was a thing!)
  7. Got these on Saturday with the RSD discount from JB.

  10. I follow the method suggested on the Soundsmith site. https://sound-smith.com/faq/how-do-i-adjust-anti-skating-my-cartridge This way you are not hoping or guessing about the anti-skate setting, you see it.
  11. New to the forum after spending a bit of time at DIYAudio where I've built up my mostly self-made system. Too many amps, a few sets of speakers, some preamps and a DAC made with the help of the friendly folks over there. Rick
