    Default Please measure the dimensions of your Technics 1200s for me!!!!

    Hey all,

    I'm currently working on a custom workstation build, and I will be making cutouts for sl-1200s; however, I have not purchased them yet, and the closest shop is quite far away.

    I have scoured the internet, and have found tons of different specs for these turntables (even the Japanese and English official users manuals list different specs for the same model!)

    Therefore, I am asking the this community for help--and the task is quite simple:

    1. Please measure the EXACT length, width, and height of your SL-1200 turntable, down to the exact mm.
    2. Please post the measurement, along with the model of your particular turntable (MK2, MK5, etc.)

    Let's finally put a rest to all the conflicting figures online.

    Please and thank you!

    P.S.

    Once the build is complete, the designer is likely going to start taking orders based on the design. I can guarantee it is going to be an absolute steal compared to all the other high-end tables on the market. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated

    Thanks for asking. Feel free to post if you like; however, I haven't seen any 1210s in Japan (where I live). I'm likely going to end up with an mk3 or mk5.

    Just take a look at that and tell me that Metric isn't a far superior measurement system. I'd have no idea where to begin with these measurements.

    You struggle with fractions?

    fractions are always calculated with the same formulas, thus fractions are consistent. i dont care how cozy you are with metric, when you look at half of a pie , you dont call it 1567 mg of pie, you call it HALF OF A PIE. amirite?

    The "inconsistency" is the whole point.

    I've got an engineering background, so metric/imperial is not a problem for me.

    An 1/8th of an inch is still 0.125".
