    The platter on one of my turntables wobbles a bit. It doesn't affect the way it plays it seems. Or how it holds it's pitch. Rate of motion seems pretty constant so I/m not really worried about it. ...But should I be worried about it?:teeth:

    Technics? I wouldn't worry about it really, as long as it's not fouling anything as it moves.

    Yeah Technics. Sorry I probably should've given that info.

    i would worry about it personally... it shouldnt be wobbly, there is obviously something wrong

    i cant tell you whats the matter but its worth taking off the platter and having a look

    is it actually bent/at an angle or is it just dodgy bits of paint giving it a wobbly illusion?

    It's definitely not an illusion because I've read that it can appear to be wobbly and have checked and double checked.
