I just looked at Google for the Senior, and found this http://www.lencoheaven.net/forum/index. ... ic=17144.0 Interesting the last post about the split plinth version, I had completely forgotten about that one. I think this is Dimples as Margoshka (large hilarious Polish women who worked for me) called him. This was in the factory at Buntingford mid 90's.
Wow, very nice deck! :clap: I didn't know that you also produced TTs.
How many of these have been built?

WHAT!!!! more work, not on your nelly. Would need a proper workshop / factory, not a old git in a spare bedroom (and garage and most of another spare bedroom and outhouse for storage). AND I am happy where I am, the TT was never a core product it was just entertainment for me to develop it and make it work, and it worked, and per usual with NVA I and it was insulted by everyone in the trade.

That's a shame, just imagine the talk on pfm, AOS and the trade if you did!

I shall have to keep my eyes peeled for one as I'm intrigued by it. I begin a search for one right away.

Your welcome to back engineer it and make it, I will even help, but it was a hybrid based on my ideas and on parts I bought from Doug Hewitt who owned Manticore who was a sort of mate at the time. I used the Mantra geometry, bearing and glass platter.

That sounds like a plan Doc. I have access to CAD & CNC equipment , do you wish to continue discussions in private?

I wasn't serious, you need to find one first, my poor old mind is not going to search back into the recesses of over 25 years ago now, 'cos that is when they were made.

They don't do that anymore, they take it to the nearest drop in centre, normally an "open all hours" shop.
