There is a TNT on epay that has the 600 rpm motor. For some reason it does not look “right” can someone explain to me what I’m looking at. Shouldn’t there be something to fill the big space where the old motor went.

It should have the VPI Dual Motor Flywheel assembly--which is what the large cut-out is for.

Thanks, I knew something was missing, just didn’t know what.

About the only thing TNT6 is the plinth. It would have had the two motor with flywheel package that weighs about 40 pounds. That may be the original platter. For his price, it could be a good starting point to build something great. It would also require an sds to run properly with the dual motor. If you wanted to make it a true 6, you would have to find that motor assembly and I am willing to bet that would be very, very hard to come by. That singe motor he shows can be bought for cheap.
I think someone parted out a 6 and all that was left was the plinth and maybe platter and someone has cobbled this together.
Buyer beware.

Agreed, too expensive for what you get. For example, on USAudiomart there's a nice Soutmaster for the same price, with tonearm.

As a point of reference, I purchased a TNT Mk-6 almost exactly a year ago in perfect shape for $4,000. It came with the:
dual motor assembly
acrylic platter (later sold for $700.00)
SS center weight
peripheral ring weight
12.7 arm
SDS
SS Zephyr cart
SS counterintuitive

I think the seller was happy as was I.

I have since replaced the platter with an aluminum platter and am using a HW Workshop 12 inch 3D arm with gimbal bearing and single run tonearm wire from headshell to RCAs.
Used TNTs are a great deal as this is my second one.
