Question about Turntables
This may seem like a crazy question because it basically just about the look. I purchased the above turntable used for my late teenage son who wants to give a shot at some small DJ engagments. The turntable came damaged. The upper aluminum shell on one corner was scraped and gouged on 2 sides. I have been able to buff it smooth with some 500 grit sandpaper but need to fill in the gouges, reshaped the corner a little bit and hope to find some paint that is close to feather it in. Long story - and filing a freight claim may be more trouble than it is worth.
Any tips about fixing this before I start messing with this.
Your on the right track, however, a simpler solution would be to just buy a Faceplate for the unit.
You can purchase FACEPLATES @ 1200s.com
Although these are for the SL1200MK2 series - they don't make them for the SL1200M3D - you will have to drill a hole about 3/4" next to the pitch control, to make room for pitch reset button.
