RE: Gatorboard / Gatorfoam Revisited

You should be good to go, since either the Polycrystal cone or the ceraball Universal footer should perform well for the purpose. I would adhere a 40mm x 10mm Carbon fiber disc under either device with Liquid Nails silicone adhesive, with a 40mm Herbie's Audio Lab Thin grungebuster Dot (black version, with optional adhesive backing) affixed to the bottom of the disc as an interface with the rack shelf surface. The slightly rounded tip of the Polycrystal cone would be placed tip-side-up to make contact with the bottom of the turntable platform, with the carbon fiber disc acting as a base. The top of the ceraball Universal footer should also have an appropriately sized Herbie's Audio Lab Thin grungebuster Dot (black version, with optional adhesive backing) affixed to it to act as an interface with the bottom of the turntable platform, with the carbon fiber disc acting as a base. If I were to choose one vs. the other without comparing them, I would choose the ceraball Universal footer since the coupling function and potential beneficial vibration control may be better optimized for the purpose.
