pivot block

The pivot block on the LS-76 (The Lathe) comes with different hardware depending on the type of cutting head that will be used, due to the very different construction of the Westrex 3DII cutter from the more similar weight and location of cabling found on the Ortofon and Neumann stereo cutting heads. Here is a link to a scan of the page in the manual which shows the design of the floating head and advance ball quick-disconnect blocks and the adaptor block used with them.
