Hi, it will be difficult to get; you can try to get it done by a turner after knowing how many grams weighs
On my Denon DA 309 I did so.
Thanks   doesn't hurt to ask around...
You might have to buy another complete TT! I assume you got the QL-5YF for free or paid very little for it (thrift store find?).
Actually I bought this table new. Lost the counter balance in a recent move. I'm heartbroken to think this table is now junk. Looked for a parts donor / No luck so far.
I was looking at that exact table on eBay a few weeks ago and it was missing the counterweight. That’s why it was cheap obviously.

So a further eBay search did actually turn up a counterweight!

I was going to buy the tt and the counterweight but went a different direction.

I assume you have searched eBay.

Point is that they are out there but you may have to wait a while.

Good luck.

It’s not junk. It’s a fine table (I owned one) and all it needs is a weight. If you can tolerate one that isn’t the original, you can play and enjoy it. A substitute only needs to (a) fit the stub, and (b) weigh close enough to the JVC. And most are attractive; I’m not suggesting you use a pile of nuts and bolts.

I have 3 c’wts I don’t use in a drawer (the arms are long-gone, but I keep useful parts). I know they’ll help someone someday, if not you, now, then somebody else a year from now. If you measure the stub diameter, that’s a start.

You can be using the TT within a week or two, unless only the original will do. Personally, I’d get it running again, listen to great music, and continue the hunt. As Uberwaltz says, they’re out there.




My tone arm shaft size is .540 in. / 13.71 mm.   I have read the weight is between 110 / 120 grams.  Original is not necessary if it will work & get me up & running I'll take it....thanks

You can always try searching for a compatible from another brand after measuring the inside diameter and comparing the weight.
No idea if something like this would work for now but there are quite a number of JVC counterweights on eBay.

It cannot hurt to message a few of the sellers and ask them if they can measure the id and check the actual weight for you?

Just a thought.
