Systemdek 11x platter

Post by Natlepan » 24 Jun 2019 21:55

Hi all I have recently obtained a 10mm acrylic platter for my systemdek 11x.
The platter requires the 22mm plastic bush fitting from the original glass platter.
Questions.
How do I remove the plastic bush from the glass platter.

Is this a worth while project I have since read that the new platter may not be heavy enough for my deck.

Many thanks

My IIX glass plater had a simple hole with no bushing.

So did my Systemdek II. This is because the earlier models had a plastic sub-platter with the bushing forming part of it, so that it formed a collar round the spindle. Later IIX/IIX-900 decks had a simple disk (of MDF, I believe) as the sub-platter, with the spindle driven through it. The platter had the same size hole in the middle, so the bushing was needed to provide a sliding fit over the spindle.

The OP could probably devise a replacement for his new platter, since he has the existing platter's bushing as a guide. Fundamentally, it's just a thick nylon disk. Even something temporary would at least allow an assessment of the new platter on the deck.

I got a IIX 900 earlier this year and have tried it with a 15mm acrylic platter intended for Rega's. For that I had to create a bushing and used a spare rubber turntable foot to achieve this. Quite a tight fit but works well enough.

Hi thanks so much for all the advice although the thought of smashing the platter doesn't appeal 😀😀
I will seek out a rubber foot

Thanks all

Hi did you stick with this platter or return to the original glass platter?

I have only been using it with the acrylic platter. I also had to fabricate an arm board to accommodate Linn arm geometry and to help raise arm height and that along with the different platter thicknesses makes things fussy for swapping between the platters. I would have to revisit levelling if I swapped back.

The later sysytemdek glass platters had a nylon bush either glued or pressed into the hole in the platter. As some previous posters have said, you could get a nylon or rubber bush that fits the hole and use that.
