Today I bought my first idler drive table, a Dual 1019, that set me back £5.
Considering the price, I should not expect everything to work flawlessly, but after cleaning it up, I was actually quite pleased with it. All the mechanics seem to work, and the table itself is undamaged. Only the 16rpm. setting is not functioning, because the top of the pulley is missing (broken off)
Question: How hot should the motor be after running half an hour at 45 rpm.?
Me think it's quite hot!
Also, for a motor that is suppused to be running quiet, I'm not impressed. How much noise and vibration is normal?
