List of plinth builders for Technics SP10 MK3

Would like a dual arm plinth built for my Technics SP10 MK3.

Looking for reasonably priced builders.

I looked for references but there are very few listed.... and most are old listings and no longer available.

I believe that the most reasonable price is the original obsidian base with its own dust cover;  all other manufacturers charge prices higher than the turntable value.
The obsidian for mk3 is much nicer than for mk2, but make sure to replace the footers under this plinth, the stock footers are weak. 
Here you can see my ex Obsidian and custom Teak Wood plinth.

Pneumatic insulators - highly recommended under the plinth (they are adjustable and supports up to 60kg) 

What exactly are you looking for ?  

Can make almost anything - have done a few Technics Plinths 

Take a look at my systems page too theres is a Technics pictured there

For two tone arms, I think you might consider building a plinth that encloses the motor only. In other words, get rid of the rectangular escutcheon that sits on top of the surface of most plinths for the mk2 and mk3. Once you get rid of the escutcheon, there is much more room for two tone arms and 9 inch tonearms. Even a single 9 incher won’t work well with that escutcheon in the way.

That's hard to do especially on the MK2 as all the circuit cards are installed on the plate and they plug together via sockets on them with no wiring harness.  Everything of course is possible but it would require quite a bit of engineering to do.

I was only thinking of the mk3, where electronics are outboard. It’s been done by many, including Steve Dobbins. Probably OMA too.

I posted a picture of the innards of the SP10mk2 on my systems page for reference

Thx, but like I said, Rich has a mk3, and my remarks about shedding the outer chassis were only as regards the mk3. And it’s been done many times before by various companies. The motor of the mk3 is apparently easy to dissect from its chassis.
"all other manufacturers charge prices higher than the turntable value"The SP10 MK3 is no longer well regarded and worthy of high level upgrades?

surely you can upgrade but you need to do it "cum grano salis".
Spending more on a plinth than the turntable cost (whatever it cost) is simply irrational or madness!
I would much prefer to mount the SP10 MK3 motor 'naked' and have not been able to find any 'diy' references?

Don't know how good this Acoustand Solid Plinth V2 is, but would be very convenient:  
Actually, would like a simple plinth in the same design as the Acoustand, minus the adjustable arm boards... just a blank arm board on each side, to be drilled out for whatever arm used.
Would be able to have arm boards made of various materials.

Your comments are always welcome... I have learned so much from your threads and posts!
Don’t know how accurate the value is, but just looked on Ebay for recent completed transactions (Past 2 months) for Technics SP10 MK3 and the lowest price was $6225.00...came in simple diy wooden plinth, no cover, there were imperfections/marks/scratches on the motor unit,, it was located in Japan. My motor unit looks ’as new’ and my controller also is in nice condition and has the SL 1000 style plinth/cover in very nice condition.
There was also a new in box SP10 MK3, motor/controller only, that sold for $11,211.00 on December 29, 2019 on ebay

I have a Dobbins plinth for a mk3 for sale if interested - it is listed

do you have a link ? i’d like to see it @bfalls
