REMOVING THE PLATTER FROM THE SL-1200 MK2,3,4,5,M5G
There is a right way and a wrong way to remove the 1200 platter. The
platter fits like a glove to the spindle. Over time these parts can
freeze together. Remove the mat and take notice of the two holes in the platter.
I have seen many videos where they just pull up on the platter and it
pops off. This will work for a pre loosened platter.
Most are not pre loosened and until they are, yanking up will just damage the center spindle.
But even if it is loose, it is not reccomended by KAB to do it that way.
