Even though i am playing my record on normal speed, it plays to fast

if your turntable doesn't have a pitch control (like the dj's turntables) if you open it you should find on the board close from the 45-33 rpm switch a variable resistor ( a small electronic part with a sort of disc on top with in the middle of it a place for a flat screw driver and marking like + and - those resistor are made to control the speed and can go bad or just need to be adjusted . First try to adjust it turning the dial really carefully with a small screw driver if nothing happened it could need to be replace.

I have a technics turntable, model SLB500 which just decided not to work. I notice it's missing the 45 adapter. Would that have anything to do with it's not working?

NO!, the 45 rpm adapter has to do with the small 3 1/2 " records with the large hole in the middle.That the turntable does not work has to do with a black belt usually attached to motor & the UNDER side of PLANTAN, OR PLATTER. The motor is damaged or the black belt under platter is warned or damaged. Replace belt or check motor drive.

Need to make hole bigger on a 45 record

I am aware of jukebox mechanisms that would clamp down on the record, and if it detected a small-hole in the 7" disk, it would change the RPM to 33 1/3, and the large hole would mean 45 RPM.

However, if we drill down into the history of the development of the 45, we can see that it was developed as a replacement for the 10" 78 RPM disk. It was also intended to be played on a distinct 45 RPM player, and thus the large hole to discourage use on regular turntables.

Most of the 45s in the UK had a pushout centre (some round, some triangular). 33s didn't have this. Ex-jukebox records had the pushout pushed out, and clip-in new centres could be fitted

Wurlitzer 3600 Jukebox turntable problem

The 3600 has a hub that is supposed to play dinked and undinked records. They had 33rpm and 45 rpm records back then, so to change the record speed the undinked (small hole ) records pushed down the hub flat when it landed on it, which changed the gearing. When a dinked (big hole) record lands on it falls onto the larger part of the hub. So if the hub is down and stuck there that's your problem. After the hub has been pushed flat (because of a small hole record) it is supposed to rise up again when the record is returned to the carousel. Have a look under the turn table and push up the centre rod.

My console can only play 45 rpm records

There should be a record size selector switch somewhere. It will move the arm to the positions for 12inch 7inch and 10inch records. It must be set to 7inch or 10 at the moment. For 33 it should be on '12' and for 45 on '7'.

How do I set up a record for 45 speed?

You place it over the turntable spindle if you need to use it. Many 45s have a standard 6mm spindle hole so you do not need to.
