For Sale: The Mule Plinth for your Technics SP10 mkII.
(This plinth is being sold 'Less' the SP10 mkII motor unit for which it is designed.) and it is being sold 'less' the Graham 2.2 tonearm shown in one of the photos. The chassis and tonearm are being shown to give the prospective buyer a solid vision of how this plinth will look when equipped as seen.
An important design feature of this build is that it is designed specifically for fitting 9-inch tonearms to the SP10 mkII.
The Mule Plinth is a minimalist light/rigid design. The primary material is Baltic Birch Multi-ply. Above each large rubber foot is a cylindrical shot chamber holding #9 lead shot. The shot chambers serve to dampen resonance and also to help 'plant' each footer onto the surface where it stands. This plinth is equipped with 1/4-20 thread inserts to accommodate which ever cone footers the new owner desires. (4 required) The rubber feet shown go with this sale and will serve as a very practical choice.
Fwiw, I made (and sold) one other Mule Plinth earlier this year. It was my 2nd build and features minor detail changes while retaining the essential design. This one that I have for sale is the first build and adheres closest to the design intent.
It is being sold with two tone-arm boards. The one seen mounted is for round base Graham tone-arms such as the 2.2. The board to the side is cut for SME 9 inch tone-arms.
