Rodney Eugenio's Lenco.....

Arm mounting scheme: The swinging armbase allows the possibility of mounting most tonearms of 9 to 12 inches effective length
below: Rodney's comments:
"Hi Steve, ....Early this year, I was able to somewhat finish another Idler based turntable.
The motor/idler drive system, spindle and platter were taken from a Lenco 75 ( hence the name " spirit of 75 " ).
It uses a top plate based on Peter Reinders' of Lenco Heaven forum.
The plinth styling is similarly taken from my previous Garrard 301 project posted in your site. (edit; in the Garrard Gallery)
It comprises of ebony wood, layers of plywood and black perspex or acrylic.
The tonearm is a special 12 inch version of the Odyssey Rp1 tonearm by John Gordon. It is intended to be used with a speed controller ( ongoing development at lenco heaven ) but already functions perfectly on it's own.
The motor is a 50 hz model but because of the PTP, can be tweaked to function at 60 hz frequency.
So this is somewhat a solution to the rather rare availability of 60 hz north american versions......"
