UPDATE 08/02/2016: I have to clarify something that should be obvious, since quite a few people have bothered me about it... OF COURSE this unit won't be good for playing back any valuable records, because there's no way the tonearm is going to track anything correctly. Besides, I chose a record that wouldn't be of much concern if it were to be ruined, and it's not like this turntable is designed to play something like a hundred-dollar Beatles album. So don't get the impression that I'm going to seriously use this turntable as my main unit on which to play records, because it's a project that was designed just for fun, and was a test to see how much of a fully-functional turntable could be cobbled together from two Lego Power Functions sets. It was also, arguably, the first DIY Lego turntable demonstrated on YouTube to have been fitted with an actual magnetic phono cartridge, which gave it a sound quality far better and fuller than much of the other Lego record players shown on YouTube at the time - they used sewing needles and paper cones, and trust me, they're far worse for playing records than the cartridge that this unit is fitted with.

Presenting the new, improved version of my LEGO record player with a sturdier, less wobbly platter. Note that the pink platter is NOT a LEGO piece; it is actually a giant gear taken from my old "The Gear Box" (which is an entirely different platform than LEGO) by Exclusive Educational Products of Barrie, Ontario. It solved the wobbly platter problem by making the structure less cluttered and more sturdy. Just needed to do a little more tweaking to get it to work with the LEGO system. The two holes in the middle of the giant gear are a tight fit for the LEGO pegs, which made the platter much more solid in the long run!
