Question about Stanton T52 Turntable
I had a bigger belt with a different plate and got it to spin, but when I put the needle on the record, it stopped. So, I'm assuming the belt was too big and didn't have enough tension to keep the dish spinning with the added weight. I'm hoping that the correct belt will help. I just need to find a belt.

Stanton is a hell when it comes to parts, just via a dealer is the best solution. But have you first tried to get the grease and dirt of this belt? and offcourse the poulies (round metal or plastic it spins on)degreasen. Do you use a clampweight or so..? Kind of waste of money and don't forget that the motor in this pricerange ain't a strong one is, which spins at a perfect 33, the st.150 is also cheap built and if you go for the music quality i recommened pro-ject or rega. Those have nice beginner hifi tables with a way better arm for 400 euro's new and pro-ject has the option to upgrade it , by give them the arm you use and buy the more expensive/better one for way less. And those sound way better then a stanton. The needledoctor.com sells a lot gear http://www.needledoctor.com/Pro-Ject-Debut-Carbon-in-Light-Grey?sc=2&category=352. but this table comes included 2mred , which i also have, but your records needs to be real clean, so i use them seldom:). And i have checked the side where i sometimes buy vestax gear, but yours wasn't between them. Just go to a dealer and they get one for you or check ebay.
But first try to clean it well, a little oil on it and your grip is gone.
Goodluck, greetings richard

SOURCE: belt fell off my stanton
Ok, so put it back on.
It's very simple, just take the platter off, and out the belt on the bottom. Then put the platter back on, and you'll have to pinch the belt off the platter, and wrap it around the motor shaft.

You'll need to contact Stanton for support on this, as they do not have any authorized service centers. All repairs are done in house. However, because this is an older model, I am not sure they support it any more.

I just had a spindle lock issue this past Sunday at my gig. I had the turntables out in my car and brought them in. I let then warm up for 2hrs before plugging them in.
Everything was good. Then mid set my right side turntable started spinning really fast and then DEAD STOP.
I was pushing the platter and it really hard to turn. I took off the platter and tried to turn it with my hand. It was dead locked, WTF?!!
So I limped through with one turntables since I use Traktor Scratch Pro and made it through the whole night successfully.
I searched the net and it was suggested to lubricate the 1200 spindle with 15W40 motor oil. Since the motor design is indentical, I picked up some 10W40 motor oil since I couldn't find 15W40.
I oiled both turntables to be on the safe since. I tapped the spindle on the locked turntable to help loosen it.
I drove back home which is pretty much an hour drive and let the tables sit for another 2 hrs.
I decided to grab a thick towel and vice grips to work on the locked spindle.
Clamping down on the towel with the vice grips on the brass fitting for the platter I was able to free the spindle quite easily.
I was then able to turn it by hands so I did in both forward and reverse directions to work the oil down into the spindle bearings.
I put the platter back on and spun it manually to check for resistance, it was spinning nicely!
Plugged in the turntable, set the pitch at 0 and watched the stobe dots. There was no waver in the strobe dots. YAAAAAAAY!
My turntable is back to new and since I only use them on the road they stay stored most of the time.
So I would suggest just oiling the spindles every so often to keep them tip top.
Hope this helps you!

SOURCE: trouble with cartridge alignment
Hi, i was going to suggest a dedicated cartridge weiging scales but the one one the arm should suffice.
Normally it should be between 1.5 and 2 grams, as a ball park figure , though some will vary quite considerably.I think this can take upto 5 grams( a bit heavy really)
Looking at the picture, it looks like the stylus cantilever has colapsed, by someone dropping the cartidge onto the record.
If you think the alignment is out then you neded to buy a Cartidge allignment protractor, so you can setup your cartidge properly and don't ruin your records.
You could try and loosed the cartridge bols and move the cartridge so its parallel with the front of the head shell.
Are you using it for DJ use or just for listening to music?
I have just found on ebay, this -
If you need more help, please ask.
Regards - Anthony
