I thought platters are timed at 33rpm and 45rpm, look at the platter it has dots on it, when a line looks like it aint moving it corresponds to a set speed which is listed on the deck. So you can find out quite easily by setting each table to exactly 45rpm and seeing what the difference in pitch is.
