View Full Version : Technics SP-15 trick???

Hi everybody.
Just joined the forum - first post.
I just bought a Technics SP-15 turntable (very heavy duty) from an auction house and want them to remover the platter and pack separately (it's about 7 lbs). The seller says removing the table is more difficult than he thought it would be and wants to ship it attached. Does anyone know if there is a special trick to get the platter off this model. (The SP-10 has a shipping bracket that must be attached to secure the DD motor.)

I wouldn't know for sure, but I don't think there is. I've seen platters on direct drive turntables stuck pretty tight. Did the seller say whether they had tried pulling very hard by the holes?
