I have a VV 1-1, and here is how I removed the turntable. I would saturate the 
spindle with either penetrating oil, liquid wrench or Kroil. Let the oil seep 
into the spindle and the turntable. After a few hours, put a couple of small 
pry bars underneath the turn table. Do not force this!!!! Take a standard 
hammer and lightly tap the spindle. The turn table should pop off. You might 
have to use the oil in more than one application. The important thing is to be 
very gentle. These were very cheaply made machines, and delicate. This method 
will work on other machines with stuck turn tables.Harvey Kravitz

know of a  way to repair a “sprung” platter?  Apparently someone attempted to 
remove the platter on a VV 1-1 by prying and the platter is now warped.  I was 
thinking of possibly using a press to apply pressure and placing a tack weld on 
the “high” side of the platter/hub connection.  Would this work?Thanks.John
