Black SME Style Tonearm Mounting Plate Armboard for Thorens TD-16X Models


Out of stock


A high quality armboard plate to allow easy installation of SME 3009 and SME M2-9 tonearms to Thorens TD-160, TD-145, TD-165, TD-166, TD-166 MKII, TD-160MKII, TD-160 Super and TD-147 turntables.
Unlike other manufactured armboards, these are ONE PIECE of high quality machined aluminum, BLACK anodized and brushed.
Included with your armboard are rust-proof screws for attaching the plate to the table and four stainless steel screws for attaching the arm to the armboard.
Note: Installation of your tonearm will require some removal of metal from the Thorens subchassis. (Unless using TD-160 Super or TD-160B. This can be done by file, grinder, or Dremel.  (I prefer the Dremel with a metal grinding wheel…the Thorens subchassis cuts like butter with that!)

Note: The armboard itself is ONE piece…two are shown so the quality of the machining could be viewed.
