inner platter - original or counterfeit
Hi

Are there counterfeit inner platter/bearing parts out there?

I have found a inner platter+bearing (black liner) on eBay. The seller is very helpful, and has sent me all the pictures I have requested. The spindle bearing, however, appears to be more tapered with not such a rounded tip.

It could be because mine is so worn out at the tip. It is hard to tell.

Thanks

That doesn't look original. The interface between the spindle and the inner platter is unusual, with what appears to be a machined shoulder on the spindle (or even some sort of washer).

Not that long ago an inner platter with broken spindle popped up on the used market. Maybe someone has attempted a repair.

Tip looks fine, but something strange going on where the spindle joins the sub platter. Have you had a torchlight inside the bearing? Does the internal bottom look smooth and mirror finished?

They are far too cheap secondhand to counterfeit. However, as mentioned, the 'washer' looks very odd. Never an inner platter like it.

Nope.

The RD11 with the single-point bearing is massively engineered. Like an LP12 on steroids.

I think it may be an old one of mine, that had a hard journey in transit , even though it was well protected, chap said he was getting it repaired, just a thought.

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