    Question Not enough 360 clearance, Wise on Alpha Pioneer

    Any idea on how to produce enough clearance for 360 rotation? Need about 2 inches.

    Raising the level of the 6-point mounts probably won't work; the north/south mounts have enough additional height but not on the custom side supports.

    Extending the north/south arms from the bottom probably won't work either; the bottom fundamental bars are not long enough to have something over 2" to be stuck in between the arms and the base.

    but you need this one:

    the second one is not so high.

    thanks for the info Alex, I did not know there is a lowered version of the adapter.

    upon examination however I do not think this lowered version adapter gives enough clearance for my machine; it seems to be at most 2 cm shorter while my machine needs at least more than 2 inches (even in the case that I strip down to original grip).

    as far as I know, for dropweight machine, all of them would not have 360 degree clearance ....
    you can do a modification by putting some metals on the turntable base (you can do a customized by yourself), so it will increase the height of the turntable

    goodeye, yes they are are the normal version. I don't even think the increased version will work since the 2 inches exceeds the height of the north/south mounts.

    sounds good, I'm going to try if I can extend the root screws (by bolts + same diameter screws) then put something in between.

    I would find a way to raise the entire turntable by adding a boss to the bearing...

    I second what Mark says above. When you raise the entire turntable, you need to make sure the turntable does not become wobbly and yet still turns easily. To make the raised turntable stable, some kind of cylindrical spacer needs to be added. That spacer can be referred to as a boss, bushing, sleeve, etc., but whatever you call it, you need one to keep the raised turntable stable.

    Off topic.
    This is a "normal" "non Wise" (7mm lower than "increased) version, black painted and welded.
    Some adapter (or longer bolts and washers) to raise turntable will be brilliant solution for me. Only one version of the custom side supports would be needed.
