KAB SL1200 SPINDLE THRUST PLATE

SL1200 THRUST PLATE

The newly designed KAB SL-1200 thrust plate, arrives just in time as the stock unit's thrust pads are beginning to show signs of wearing out.

    This new thrust plate is made from Teflon filled Delrin - AF . This material has a very low coefficient of friction and our tests show it compares with sapphire. We performed platter run down tests with Stock New, Delrin-AF and Sapphire thrust plates. The Delrin-AF and the Sapphire both recorded 1 minute 55 seconds while the stock thrust plate timed in at 1 minute. (Tests performed with platter magnet removed)

   This new thrust plate features a thicker profile and an oil well for better retention of lubrication. Our new thrust plate will fit all post 1990 SL-1200's and many other models in the Technics line. See note below concerning drive gear versions.

This is a maintenance part that every SL1200 owner should have. Even if you don't install it now, you will need to eventually because the thin pad of the stock design is going to wear out. Kit includes Delrin-AF Thrust Plate, SFWO-010 Spindle Oil, and Thrust Plate Wax.

NOTE: There are 3 styles of early spindles that have a plastic gear on the bottom. .
