Anything with a zocle and thiakol rubber can't be half bad...

 

:D

 

 

 

It uses 304 full core non-magnetic stainless steel zocle combined with thiakol rubber, and thus has a fine capacity of anti-vibration.

 

For those who don't know;

 

zocle (or socle)

The above link to thiokol rubber (note the spelling) is misleading. It states that thiokol is used as a solid rocket fuel. So will your turntable go into orbit if suitably ignited? No - thiokol rubber was merely used as a binder for early solid space rocket propellents. It would have burnt up in the process but it was not a primary fuel component. Don't believe everything you read on the web.

 

There is another link between thiokol and space rockets. The Challenger disaster was caused by the failure of an O-ring manufactured by the Thiokol Corporation to seal liquid fuel from the engine blast. However the O-ring was not made of thiokol rubber.

 

Just in case you want or need to know.

An extra zocle or three will fix that.

 

Should have left out the link and just said thiokal was a synthetic rubber.

Nothing wrong with belt drive. Been around for ages as the drive of choice for tt's such as the Rega's, Linn LP 12, Well Tempered Amadeus....:)
