Anyone know if there’s any retailers specialising in Thorens vintage turntable spare parts preferably in the UK?

Some on the eVilBay if ever. Depending on your location shipping for those large parcels might prove expensive though. Then you also have those more elegant IMO and maybe "modern" if not OEM to say that come without hinges. I prefer those...

I've purchased a TD160 platter in the past from Ebay UK seller 'turntable_groove'. The original platter was warped, but the replacement was not, so this was a success for me.

The 'turntable_groove' Ebay shop sells a range of 'vintage' parts for Thorens, SME, Garrard and others. Given the age of some of these, condition varies of course. My TD160 platter's rim was a bit mottled with age, but the platter itself is sound, and I noticed it was one that had been drilled underneath to balance it, unlike my original. The stock obviously varies over time, but they seem to have a few Thorens bits at the moment.

HTH
