find out the average hooker cost in your area, then whore yourself for half that. depending on your dedication, you will be able to afford 1210s within a month the most. (y)

also, what ollie said. plus, dont knock of a pair of vestax pdx2000. they can go really cheap used, but are almost as solid as technics.

Maybe try not to touch the platter at all... once you've cued it in learn to mix just using the pitch control.
Top advice, for delt drives or directs.

A lot of belt drives have wobbly platters which make them prone to skip when you touch them. When you cue the record up, try to hold the vinyl by the edge instead of the top. I can't explain it very well but check out the oldskool scratch DJs who scratch like this. Cutmaster Swift springs to mind.

It just ravages my soul when i've got something lined up perfectly and then they decide to go off on a jolly and completely un lock :'(

Anyways the main thing with belt drives is make sure they are as flat as possible, get a spirt level out and spend a good half hour getting them right. I don't know anyone who does this and to be honest if people had a fucking brain they would! Also like said don't touch the platter and get on the pitch ride hard ;)
