Gee sounds like that might be the same guy that made mine a few years ago.
Nicely made and exactly to my specs.
Really nice old school guy, he had an accent and was into rebuilding turntables as well.

He was great to deal with. Should have kept his phone number.

 

Either he decided no to do it anymore or got fed up with how eBay/PayPal has been gradually making things unfairer for sellers and easier for buyers to rip off sellers.

Yeah the guy was in nsw and always had high end tables for sale too

I’ve found some one in melb and indicative price under 200. Sent exact measurements and wait for quote.

 

I want cut outs on the side for lifting and one at the back for the cables.

They are easy to make, for a perspex company. There's one company in Airport West and one in Laverton North that have built covers for me.

We use a place called Diffuser Industries out in Thomastown when we need to get something like this for a customer.  Really helpful and pretty quick turn-around:

We sent them some drawings for quite a complex cover for our Solar Inverter and it came out spot on.

Cheers,

Interested in NSW based who I can order from online and will post to the country. 

(Aussie Post increases costs if they go over a state line. :emot-bang:)

Also in Sydney, Ausneon in Punchbowl - 17 Moxon Rd - 9707 4666. They made a cover and base for my VPI turntable as well as a cut-out for my Solid Tech rack, all for a reasonable cost. Can't seem to find the name of the place in Yagoona - they can laser cut perspex into more elaborate shapes. I have something planned for them to make for me - should look good.

Hi Bill,

I used a company on the Gold Coast in 2012 to make a custom perspex case for my turntable.

I've just dug out the receipt - All Star Plastics at Southport.

It was a one off job to my request - 10mm base plinth with routed outer edges for the 4.5mm lid to sit on. I had some cable apertures cut also. Came to $230 delivered and from memory turn around was within a week.

See attached photos.

I hope they're still going? They were very helpful and easy to deal with.

Amazing what you find on here. Those cables still sounding great Bill. You should definitely market them. 

Thanks mate. 

 

I do sell them very cheaply to people who want them.  But dont market them at all 

 

Cheers
