    Due to its age I never found a Series 1 that was all original or sounded right because of the quality of the repairs. You gotta know what you’re buying with vintage, no easy answers here.

    I am now aware of the thickness of the wall of the stainless tube of the series 1, but I think it is not the same of the "R" - the "R" tube is 0,25 mm thick. Some people sell 12" stainless tubes of 0,2 and 0,5 mm, but I never found one of the proper thickness.

    We can always buy a cheap 9" SME 3009 tonearm and build the poor man's 3012 -R, but according to DIY tradition it will become the best SME in the world!
