Thanks, LeRoy! This was something I wouldn't have ever thought of -- that I might find a small motor guy locally. I tend to think of phono stuff as so specialized that no one much knows anything about it but our community, but the truth is that it's just made of parts, some of which could be used for any number of things!

I found a small motor guy who diagnosed that it had “dried out “. He had a solution he swabbed on several times that permeated the windings and fixed the hum. I’m like Sgt. Schultz on the details. “I know nothing!” LeRoy On Mon, Nov 19, 2018 at 12:25 PM Ron L'Herault via Phono-L <email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>> wrote: 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!
