Screw insert & Armboard fabrication
« on: June 11, 2020, 13:15 »
Hi can I know where to buy stainless steel M8 screw inserts (for wood plinth) in Singapore? I need to attach some screw in type footers, also anywhere I can fabricate generic tonearm board? Thanks

Hi there

There is a shop - Central Engineering Pte Ltd (113 Tyrwhitt Rd, Singapore 207544), facing Jalan Besar stadium, at the corner of Petain Road and Tyrwhitt Road. They have all kinds of screws, bolt and nuts. You may want to call them before you go there - +6562942111.

Cheers.

Y s screws too http://ysscrews.com/ same vicinity
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

There is a shop (hahaha), somewhere in or around Syed Alwi Road, between Townshend Road and King George's Ave that has a laser cutting machine. I had them cut acrylic spacers for my Rega arm, long ago. This shop is the type you need to step down from street level to get in.

I was on my way to Ban Heng Long when I noticed it.

Cheers
