Transcriptor Saturn

Post by SentenZa » 07 Mar 2018 12:23

Hello all,
I'm currently restoring a Transcriptor Saturn turntable and I have a problem for connect the motor, it has been redone already and I do not have the scheme for solder the wires, does anyone have a plan or a photo of this mounting?
Thank you

Hi, Are you using 120 VAC or 240 VAC. I drew a schematic of mine a while back and will look for it. A rather simple and crude (IMO) way to do things, but it works.

Hi, I found it. All common parts. It works, I still am not fond of the "recoil start" mechanism in the motor..It shakes up the TT pretty good. But then it takes several seconds to get up to speed so I have to wait to put the stylus on the LP anyhow.

Hi,
thank you for your answer, I use 240 VAC and I think your schema should be similar.

Thank you
