DIY record weight

Recommended Posts

 

I wouldn't expect any issue using a weight on an Axis. The LP12 doesn't like weights because of the suspension. You can do it, but sensibly you need to set the suspension up with the weight in place and always use it. The Axis is non-suspended and as long as you don't use something very heavy the bearing should be fine.

Could you maybe recommend one please?

PS

Sorry to hijack this thread.:$

Not a clue Barry. Sorry, but my Well Tempered uses a screw-down clamp and I can't even remember the last time I used a weight.

There is an interesting article on PFM about adding clamps/weights to the LP12 the general consensus was there was no advantage.

Big thanks to Tim for the weight!

The weight and the little Garrard badge just add the finishing touches to my 401, I think it looks great!

👍🏻
