The Victor book gives some tips on reducing hum, such as checking the plate tightness, and adding felt between cabinet and motorboard. There are no circuit components other than switches. Have you checked with George Vollema for the tone arm bracket? I understand that Wyatt Marcus is doing really good Orth reproducer rebuilds.

I need a whole new tonearm mounting bracket assembly for a Victor VE8-12X that I just got. This one is totally and utterly wrecked. Anyone know who's selling repros? Ron Sitko? JAS? Anyone have current contact info for a dealer who would have some? Also, has anyone rebuilt one of these electric platter motors? This one works great, but it has a really loud mechanical 60Hz hum. I want to replace any components in the circuit that I can, and also do a full cleaning and lube job, but I would really like to know what I'm getting into first. And lastly, anyone have Walt's current info in case I want to have him rebuild this reproducer? Thanks a million! Robert
