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 once had an electric credenza with a bad hum in the motor.
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!”

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.

Hey everyone, hope all is well with you folks! 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!
