Technics 1410 M2, anti skate spring

Post by Nuno Almeida » 15 May 2019 21:35

Hey guys, I'm fixing a 1410 I bought really cheap, and aesthetically just needs a bit of elbow grease, mechanically tough a bit more of a problem, the main switch micro had the tabs that hold it broken (easy fix), the traditional queuing arm plastic piece was broken, also fixed, well a few things, but pretty sure someone dabbled with it before me, and the anti skate spring is missing completely, if any on you happens to know the specs of the spring and wouldn't mind sharing them, I would be very grateful.

Thanks
Nuno Almeida

As best I can see from the service manual, available in the Library, the part number is SFPSP 14001, but I don't have a clue where you can get the specs, but, I found you an entire anti-skate assembly from a 1400, which, I'm guessing is substantially the same. All you need to do is use the spring, and discard the rest. Go to https://organdonorparts.com/Technics-SL ... P322-3.htm. Let us know if this works out for you. :)

Thank you a lot, the specs I'm asking are simply the dimensions, wire diameter, outer diameter, length would be great but I can get there by trial and error after I know the other dimensions, if I can find the the dimensions I can get a spring for cents and locally, and that would be great, again, thank you

If you looked at yours, you know the length. I tried to get one for my sl-d3, which might have had the same part #. Technics couldn't supply me with one, or it's specs. It's a narrow (about 2mm od), low tension spring. Best pick up a few different sizes, and experiment with them. You can adjust tension by stretching/cutting as needed. Might save yourself a bunch of headaches by just picking up that assembly. Either way, you can do it. Good luck.

If you want to get creative, why not rig up something with some string, some wire and a small weight, rat rod style?

lenjack thanks and true, would save a couple of headaches to just buy the assembly, although factoring transport would put the price at close to 50€, following Murphy's law it would stop at imports customs, and at that price point be eligible for extra taxes... I paid 5€ for the "complete" turntable, it's not that the TT isn't worth 50€, it's just the idea of spending that money on a "25x3mm" spring doesn't appeal much to me, may still happen though, from a few bids and images I saw, and comparing it with the other spring close to it I would say 3 or 4mm OD, total length free 25mm and "way" less then 0.5mm wire diameter, will open my other TT to check if it is close enough.

chgc, indeed it may happen, but for now will insist on getting the spring and getting it working, but not a bad idea,

Either way, please let us know. I'm really curious to learn how you did. My sl-d3 spring was there, but much too weak. I ended up shortening it to create more tension. Took 3 tries to get it right. Cheers.

I disassembled my Phillips 887, to inspect the system and while not exactly the same it is imo close enough to copy, measured the spring at 0.2mm wire diameter and a bit over 4mm od, unfortunately finding 0.2mmx4mm springs is being difficult and so I am waiting for a few budgets, should be around 20€ for a meter, if all else fails chgc idea looks good ;)

Of course, but since I don't know the name of the currency, or the currency symbol, I'm unable to use the currency converter.
