What happened to this platter ?

Postby lsplab » Mon Nov 26, 2018 2:01 pm

I've uploaded a picture of what seems to me to be a TNT 5 platter. But it looks like it's been modified or perhaps repaired ? The white spots appear porous - they're rough in texture and pitted. Each of them is opposite a screw hole in the bottom, but all 6 screws are missing. Does anyone have an idea what might have been done to it ? Thanks in advance.

Yes, this is a TNT Mk5 platter. It would appear that the former owner over torqued the bolts used to couple the stainless steel and delrin platter halves together and pulled out a plug of the delrin top plate. It looks to be some form of a diy fix.

Thanks Brf. That helps. I didn't know how the two halves were put together.
