The record lathe by Arius Blaze.

Release date: 01-19-2012

Record Cutter (Lathe) constructed by me (Arius Blaze). The plinth (box) and top panel are creamy and delicious walnut with oak splines, DB meter to check incoming level, heated stylus with milla-amp meter and adjustment control, stand-off motor with adjustable belt tension, built-on heat lamp, rek-o-kut cutterhead assembly with freshly re-wound Audax cutterhead, cork covered platter, antique silver ins and connections and all cloth covered cables.
First cuts have proven successful.
This will be used in the production of short run record releases for my upcoming label "Folktek Records" - be on the lookout.
