Cheap and EZ
|Neat P58H/Shield MO19|
This experiment was inspired by the spring-mounted motor on my Neat P58H.
Even if the rubber grommets on the MKVIII are still supple and intact, I replaced them with 302 stainless steel compression (1/2" x 0.600") conical springs, Grainger part no. 1NDB4 and heard a significant reduction in noise.
|Left = Neat P58H original|
Right = 1NDB4
Heck if it works with the Japanese idlers, it should also work with the TD124. So I ordered smaller conical springs from zorotools on eBay for the TD124 and TD124II.
|1NCY2 = 5/16" H x 0.48"|
|1NCW4 = 1/2" H x 0.48"|
Magnetic vs. Non-magnetic Platter
|TD124 standard platter = heavy iron|
|Lighter non-magnetic platter |
