RE: The Applied Fidelity improved Technics bearing and platter mat.

Very nice looking bearing - I wish I had kept my Tecknics to try it.
I wonder if the bearing base could be better mated to the metal chassis and then do away with the molded plastic and the rubber casing to make a stiff, rigid platform to support the Tecknics direct drive. At the time I did better mate the layers with silicone with some sonic improovements.
Using the KAB outboard speed control by Kevin made a very big difference.

I also should have kept the Tecknic to add the TTWeights 2 metal copper matts I now use on my Oracle - the problem is I do not have much of a pin lenght to center & hold the record. Would also have liked to put a 3 pound record weight also on the Tecknics.
In any case I still dream of making serious surgery to the Tecknics in making a stiff and inert base to support the bearing and metal frame.
Who ever does this and/or finds a clever simple solution will have another killer mod for the Tecknics turntable because its keeps its speed like no other...
In essence, making a custom rigid top and a custome rigid base would be awsome for the Tecknics using your bearing.
