Hi all,

I'm trying to get the shorter Victor/Gramo Co. back mount bracket for a G&T 12 inch turntable Senior Monarch machine with either nickel or black finish any condition. The machine I have has the slightly longer bracket meant for a 10 inch turntable machine. The tonearm was a standard size so to account for the difference in case size hence the difference in bracket length.

The shorter bracket has a total projection (see picture) of 6 ½ inches (166mm) as opposed to the longer bracket (left of picture) at 7 ¼ inches (182mm).

Just out of interest I spoke to a specialist about this problem especially considering apparently sleepy untouched machines. We assume that the mismatch 'must' have occurred in recent decades but he suggests that the error could have occurred when new. Consignments of 10 and 12 inch machines were sent out to dealers partly dismantled. An assistant was probably left to unpack and assemble these machines. Parts were mismatched and no one really thought about tracking alignment and the mistake would have gone unnoticed!

Any help much appreciated!
