Technics SL-1210m5g dust cover hinges installation

Technics SL-1210m5g turntable In that short video I demonstrate how to install dust cover hinges on Technics SL-1210m5g turntable. For some reason, Panasonic made it complicated and starting from M3D model, they subtracted the hinges, which is not comfortable for me. I like a dust cover to be attached to a turntable, so I could easily cover it while playing a record.

First of all it was kind of pain in an ass to find  a compatible hinge set. I was lucky, some guy in Nederlands still had them for sale brand new on eBay (use the link, may be they still have them), so I immediately made a purchase and within a week I had’em here in California. Also, I found a very useful website which guides you step by step on the procedure, but had no video. So, I thought to make one, hope some people might find it helpful.

The whole process should not take longer than half an hour. The only thing you have to really pay attention to is when you flip your turntable, be extremely careful not to damage a tonearm. The rest should be pretty straight forward. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any issues or questions.
