HOW THINGS WORK, LP12 manufacture on TV show

RE: HOW THINGS WORK, LP12 manufacture on TV show
Two things I learned:

The Ekos arm only has two bearings - I thought it had three. Also, it's still made in Scotland, just like the original. Somehow I believed it had been outsourced to China.

David, I hope that the bearing assembly method was just for the camera? Anybody assembling precision bearings using bare hands with all the contamination they carry, at my factory would be disciplined!

Sktn77a,

You could try this link that somebody else had posted earlier:-

geegee,

Yes the guys in production are very careful not to handle the bearing, or platters. It was purely done to demonstrate things.
(Equally the retailer usually builds up the components of a deck, but as you see in the film I was assembling and checking the bounce of a Highland Park deck....)

Regards,

David

Phew! Thanks David, I thought as much. Otherwise my 20 year old Ekos would not still be working well.

RE: HOW THINGS WORK, LP12 manufacture on TV show
I am a big fan of David's contribution to the LP12. I cannot think of a better successor for Ivor!
Your Kore sound fantastic and BTW Graceland is also one of my favourite albums. (Yes, I saw the video about the Kandid)
Which pressing do you like the most? My original Canadian pressing sound pretty good with my Linn Addikt Tongue
