    It looks from your photo that something is decidedly out of alignment, which is probably the direct cause of your problem. Get the bonnet lifted and get stuck in!

    Can't see how a B&D/W would do the job at all. You need the TT high enough to get in from underneath with the support around the plinth to give you full access. Lots of useful tips out there on how to support it adequately.

    the workmate goes wide enough to drop the deck in and hold it put.

    I don't want to spend 170+ on a jig that I'm going to use for a couple of hours. Will be reet using alternatives

    Sorry, new to the forum, wasn't sure what the best place would be.

    Not a problem, I'm sure Chops didn't mind. But for neatness and for new browsers, I moved it.

    Never like the Jab DD decks, great for DJ's but not really my cup of tea. I'm happy with my deck anyway now, it's bounce-free too.

    Never liked them either had a Kenwood L-07D, got rid of it in 5 days but the German guy who bought it was wery happy. Did like the outer pheriferi ring in brass tought.
    Happy that i got in the fruitbox and a bounce free world.

    I now also run an LP12 with a systemdek sub-chassis and suspension. It shows that Linn and others using compression springs are oh so wrong. Peter Dunlop sure knew better than Ivor and Castle Engineering.

    Voyd and PT were on it too with respect to suspension performance.

    That looks great. It even has a small spirit level built in.

    That's a lovely slab of 3 cm thick, veneered plywood. Did you have to drill the arm base to fit the Alphason?
