Hi Zebbo. I can only see 3 pages in the PTA subject. Should I go to the Turntable Forum and search for the word Pink Triangle bearing?

Thank you for posting the website Zebbo. I have gone over this company's website and emailed them. I would appreciate any other possible supplier of bearings for the PTA that our member know of.

As far as I know it's them or a new replacement from the Funk Firm at about £180 if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the inputs Zebbo.

On another question. More than ten years ago, I opened the plate of the PTA at the rear of the TT which held or housed the RCA type outlet. I faintly remembered that the was a strand of wire that was not insulated as thin as a strand of hair connected either from the template to one of the soldered terminal or wires. I mistakenly broke or cut the wire as I thought it was an unnecessary strand. When I screwed back the plate and connected the TT to my system, I noted a slight hum. I did not reconnect or soldered back the strand since I had unsteady hands and I figured that I mist use a special solder wire. At that time I was the distributor of Deltec ( later became DPA) HiFi equipment in the Philippines and the owner gave me a special solder in case I had to service any unit I sold.

Several nights ago, I opened the same plate and looked for this dangling strand of wire as I wanted to solder it back despite my unsteady hand. I couldn't frin the very thin strand. Could someone check on their unit and take a picture of this strand so I would know to which two spots is it soldered.

Sounds like an earth. Is the arm you're using wired to the phono sockets on that little plate?
I don't have the plate fitted to my TT as my arm, a Wilson Benesch ACT 0.5, has a captive lead.

I have an SME 309 Mark V tonearm. Yes the leads of the tone arm terminate or are wired to the phono rca sockets on the plate that is attached at the rear of the plinth by two screws at the back of the tonearm. I will attach a pictures that will show the plate as installed and when removed showing the wires.
