i am a little late into posting this but i figure that if I can help someone out with the building of this turntable than this post will be well worth the delay. Please keep in mind that this was built in July 2017 but i am just getting to a small build thread today

if theres any questions or comments please feel free to ask away


1st step is looking good so far, the spider is going together





soldering the pit rail to the supports that were glued down with CA

Last night I gave up about 1am but as you can see I managed to get the gallows and 1/2 of the support rods in, hope tonight to get the other half finished and start on the NBW details








Still have to do motor work and NBW but she's getting there









at this point she is done and ready to install, motor is supplied for additional money but its well worth it as i put an AR-1 on that circuit, powered it my 3 volt power wire from my computer power supply with a toggle to control the movement forward or back and a push button to control the speed of movement, this set up works great

How is it for rail alignment, or from the pictures, is that part of testing not completed? I've been looking at that table for quite sometime now, but don't have the courage to he the first one to build it.

I still have to secure the approach tracks but from what I have seen so far it will be no issue

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys

kits that entail soldering scare me off. how difficult was it to get the pit rail in? i need a turntable........

if you suck at playing the trumpet...that's probably why.

it comes with a template to help curve and hold the rail as you solder or ca the rail down,

my only recommendation is take the last 3/8 to 1/4 and give them alittle more tweaking so it is not at a point when the rails connect
