I recently just came up on this Gemini 500 II turntable that someone was giving away and it has a platter from a different turntable. I wanted to know if anybody knows where I can get a platter that will fit the exact model and specs?

Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.
If the turntable platter is visibly warped there nothing you can do to correct this, the only option is contact the manufacture and see if they would be willing to supply you with a replacement part at no charge, especially when you have been moving. But I would check your warranty closely, you just might be in luck.
hi, firs of all remove from the mains. pull out the rubber bed over the platter. check whether there is any lock washer in the center shaft. if have remove it. if not its ok. now pull the platter towards upside by putting the fingers in to the holes provided on the platter. remember pull using ur two hands in opposite direction. ok
This should be straightforward. Take off the slipmat and lift off the turntable (platter) and you'll see there is a rim on the underside of the platter this is where the belt goes.
Put the belt round that rim and you'll notice a couple of holes in the platter itself. Hold the belt through one of these holes and put it back on the tunrntable while taking notice of the motor position on the deck.
When the platter is in place (still hold belt) and move the platter to the position of the motor pulley and slip it on. Manually turn the deck once or twice to make sure it is in place - DONE! Replace the slipmat.
