ISO - Hinges for Yamaha P-550 Headshell
« on: February 07, 2018, 10:09:55 AM »
 Looking for a pair of hinges for a turntable I'm working on.  If anyone has any, PM me please.
 Will check EBay in the meantime.

Thanks

Mike,
I'm guessing you mean dust cover, not headshell?

Do you have any measurements of what would fit?  Sometimes other brands might fit...  Or other yamaha turntables...

I "think" I have a set of spare tt hinges, might even be from a yamaha...  I'll check & let you know...

Yes, George.  I just searched EBay and learned of my mis-naming of the part.   I'll measure it.  I tried swapping out the hinges from my PF800 and they are too wide.

According to the interwebs......The entire series uses the same hinges P-350, 450, 550, 750, 751.

That would be great if you do.   Ok to text you in a few days  after you can confirm?
And thanks, Mark.

Sure.   I also have a few pair kicking around and a width measurement would be helpful.

I found some Google images.    The ones I have are not for that table.   Sorry.
