How do you remove the oil from the record to play it?

I can’t wish anyone a “happy” Memorial Day.
 Instead please take a moment of prayer and contemplation in honor of those who gave all.

Henry is correct.
The reason Ed’s design works well is the very low mms of the Fostex driver. Even most eight inch drivers really won’t match up well. You need a midrange.

Thanks John. My problem is the screws in question are so damned small. I’m used to cars and motorcycles. That’s why I’m thinking assortment. It’s a miniature jigsaw puzzle.

Question: Ed, Henry, and anyone else who deals with small parts. Where do you buy miniature screws in metric threads? I would like to get an assortment... I’m thinking about bothering watch repair and gunsmith guys.

I’m home with a very broken foot, so I decided to repair the tonearm, and also build one from available hobby parts. What can I say, I’m getting bored. I can sit on a stool and make stuff though.

I recently bought a Lostre GST 801 arm. I need to have the cuing mechanism repaired. Anyone know of a good repair guy? They were made by Acros and distributed by Sumiko. Legend has it that someone bought out the inventory, and more or less disappeared.  So I need someone who can fix what looks like a cam drive lever.

I’m now convinced that you should only buy SME arms. They are way too expensive but they maintain parts and service.

I recently lost a dear friend to pancreatic cancer. Prayers for the family. May you find closure.

I’ve quieted transformer hum by first making sure the laminates were tight, then checking the chassis mounts. I got lucky in that nothing happened to the windings themselves. Perhaps high temperature epoxy could be step three. Ed’s right though. It can be difficult to solve.

That’s what I’m wondering Ed. Sometimes transformers need to be tightened up.

Is the noise coming through the speakers, or is a mechanical noise from the amps themselves?

For those who missed out on the first sale, the big Heil drivers are now priced at $170 at the ESS site. I don’t know if shipping is included.

Edit: I checked about the shipping. Any order over $270 ships free.

Tod, I got it right away, and I laughed.

Happy New Year EVERYBODY.
