Default SME 3009/3012 Spacer

-- Gents,

I've seen a couple of these on ebay and wonder what thay are made of, one guys says his is wood. Others just say P1 or PI arm spacer. Any ideas on what the originals are made of?

I expect wood actually might be the best material, but it seems to me an unlikely choice for SME to use.

thanks,

-- Andrew

Umm, looks nice, hope the armhole is is the right place when fitted?
OK if the center of the SME slot is the correct place for it? I would suspect this may not be the case though.

yep Andrew
I got one I'm using at the moment, I've got it sitting on tap washers decoupled from the plinth, seems to work well although I think there are better gains to be had using a wood plate,

I got one which is of a "hardwood" for Rega arms to SME....its OK but it is larger than the SME plate and the mounting screw holes, as a result, are not in the right place. Only cost £1.99 so I can hardly complain! I use it on my JVC.

Regards
