This thread wouldn’t be to counterbalance a certain pimping thread would it?Rolleyes

Anyway, I’ll be happy to post some horrors I’ve come across. In hope that it will help DIY enthusiasts avoid some of the pitfalls in set-up and thus, one hopes, one expects, they will benefit from better sounds.

If one has a rattling top plate, it’s not a good idea to stick it down in order to stop it rattling as it will sound awful.

Aquarium sealer is for aquariums, not top-plates!

Get the cartridge bolts "Linn tight", then take the arm off to wash it.

Ingots (Katalyst) and wood.
