Building a second deck
OK
For fun I have decided to build a LP12
Sourced a stunning fluted corner braced plinth an extra bolt top plate, also secured a Cirkus kit with sub chassis and new springs ( at a cool price ).
Motor, PSU, I now seek.
Pics to follow .
I am looking forward to the build.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party.

RE: Building a second deck
Started again, after having sourced some more parts.
Just spent the last hour on the plinth, wanted to bring it up to 2018
Firstly removed the black paint on lower edge, and then a spot of varnish, and a quick polish.
Quite happy with results, just awaiting carrier this week to continue.

RE: Building a second deck
    Taken the plinth to a different level, wanted to modernise the look, and colour to match
I took advice from a French polisher, and so far happy with results

Cap your bearing housing to avoid contamination perhaps.

That doesn’t look like a cirkus bearing.
