Help on renewal of turntable platter.

Recommended Posts

I have a Rotel rb830 turntable with a metal type platter. It is not that shinny anymore and was wondering how I can get it looking like new again. I have looked on eBay and Amazon but have no idea the type of paint or spray i need or the process. I did look for any sellers of platters that are ok to use with my turntable but I can not find any. Would really appreciate any guidance. :)

I have used Autosol metal polish on an Ariston RD40 and it came up a treat. Beware though that this method may make things worse with some alloys/metals (early Linn LP12 LINK: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/6182-refinishing-a-linn-lp12-platter/ and http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/how-to-clean-lp-12-platter.121903/ )

It would be good to see a before and after shot. Good luck.

Jason, I can second the Autosol.  They make at least two types; one is Aluminium and that works a treat.  The other is just for 'metal' and that works a treat too.  They are not especially expensive IIRC.  You may be familiar with the Technics 1200 series turntables and the platter side has dots to be read by a strobe.  I had a particularly shabby looking platter so I used an abrasive brush and acetone to strip off the paint.  Then I polished it with autosol and it now looks really good.

Thanks for that. Looking forward to trying it.
