I got my tweaked Walker CJ55 record deck running again today with Rega arm and cartridge fitted amongst many other mods. ;)

Subchassis has two 32 mm brass door stops bolted into recesses each side of main bearing to provide mass damping. These are hollow so I wanted to fill them with lead shot, or maybe ball bearings, but can’t find any at the moment. The sub chassis has also been reworked and refined with more filling, sanding and a respray in satin black.

The wood spring hangers have self adhesive cork strip on the underside and the MDF arm board has plaster of Paris set into circular recesses on the underside.

The two conical springs at the arm end of the chassis are packed up with rubber isolators l scavenged from a dumped fridge unit in my back alley (super womble lOl ).

Finally after cutting a 23-24mm hole in the arm board 222mm from the centre spindle l fitted my RB300 arm. The arm pivot was too low at first so lacking any arm shims (Rega arms are not height adjustable without Rega shims, or you have to make some), l packed the arm board up on its mounts with triple stacked 38mm repair washers.

The results on audition were surprisingly good. Much more depth, resolution and out of the box sound. Ok so now the speed stability or lack of it became more apparent to my ears, but it was fine with Hawkwinds ‘All aboard the Skylark’ as l had hoped. 8-)

Makes a change from sawing and sanding wood and filler all day! ;)

Good for you Edd,
Always a good thing to breath new life into an old turntable & great choice of music.
All the best JB

Shimmer of Nature? :?

Listening to ‘All aboard the Skylark’ late last night. I was trying to put my finger on the input of that new chap Martin. After the last track written by him l concluded that it was a bit ‘Moody Blues’, just toned down a bit by Brock’s guitar in places. Martin’s influence is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it doesn’t take over too much. ;)

Nice one Topgumm, :yup:
No idea what it is, but it looks close enough for me.
There's no point buying it if you can make it in a few hours especially if the weather's shit. :worthy:
All the best & keep those files moving. JB
