Vibraplane part needed
It is a fairly crude part given the rest of the Vibraplane.  I would guess any competent machine shop could duplicate the part for you. 
LP12- Power Supply- Need education
@phoenixengr - Mark Kelly had two very unique designs for open loop controllers, the brushed DC controller being one of them. The other was the Synchrotron AC-1, which was an open loop controller for synchronous AC motors. That controller was the ... 
REL T5i Subwoofer Hum issue
Be certain the amp and subwoofer are powered from the same outlet.  
Whats playing on your system today?
Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 - Strangers From The Universe (LP). 
Add a volume remote?
Khozmo, with the shunt and series resistor upgrades.  Send him the input impedance of your amplifier, and he'll recommend the correct resistance for the build.  This unit emphatically replaced a Slagle autoformer volume control, which is no slouch... 
Isoacoustics Gaia II on what type of speaker platform?
I too tried the Herbie's decoupling gliders, and preferred my previous spikes better.  The Herbie's softened the mid range and high end to an extent I didn't care for.  I now own the Isoacoustics Gaia I, and couldn't be more pleased - pricey, but ... 
Chinese fake cables How fake, how good?
Spectrum 208s were my very first pair of audiophile quality speakers.  Brings back some great listening memories.   
New in 2019
If you like the Intervention release of Night & Day, be sure to check out the live album Summer In The City.  Rather stunning. 
What area or country do you live in ?
3 hours from NYC, 3 hours from Boston and 3 hours from Montreal (driving). 
How do you clean the fans in a Runco (CL 810) projector?
I've worked on many, many types of projectors over the years, although not this particular model.  The obvious question is have you cleaned the filters? Every projector has at least one main intake filter.  Beyond that, I can assure you that once ... 
What Type Belt Are You Using
44" x 1/2" 2mil Kapton, spliceless on my Galibier.  If you're looking for an alternative, the Origin Live (1168mm) belt is well worth trying as well, despite the fact that it appears to be rubber.  It has a much lower modulus of elasticity than a ... 
Redpoint Motor Controller
I think my last paragraph sums up what I've done - this (so far) is the best option I've found.  My second choice would be an open-loop AC controller capable of driving a 7W, 600 RPM AC motor, preferably a Premotec or Airpax/Phillips - lots of hea... 
Redpoint Motor Controller
The Redpoint uses a brushed DC motor.  They all drift.  Since the controller is open-loop - meaning there is no feedback from the platter (using a tachometer type device to send corrections to the controller), the speed will invariably drift due t... 
Quadraphonic records (LPs to you and me)
It's also worth noting that quad pressings are also mixed specifically for the format, and upon 2-channel reproduction can range from absolutely explosive (try a quad UK of Dark Side of The Moon) to the utterly bizarre (US quad pressing of Steely ... 
Best Debut Albums
Carole King's debut LP was 'Writer', not 'Tapestry'.  Great album, btw.
