I think Peter used a Maxon DC motor. They tend to wear out the bearings because of the side load. If you can build electronics check out the diy forum, it has on going multiple phase controller and motor threads. Your machine shop guy should be able to make a top plate for your pod.

I agree, I replaced the Maxon motor about 2 years ago I only have 200 hours on the TT since changing the motor. I did buy a complete motor and controller assembly but, I think it is too light for the heavy platter. I won’t know for sure until I get the new pulley, then I will decide which way to go. I am leaning towards having the machine shop make a top with same pattern as the new motor and controller, and just swap all the parts.
