As a re-builder of these decks for the past 9 years, more than half of the decks that come through my shop have had bent, or damaged Eddy Brake discs. In addition, the eddy brake as it came from the factory, when new, was never a precision item. The original is a brass hub which is pressed into a metal disc like a rivet. On many 301 eddy brakes, it is easy to see the out of precision, and lack of concentricity of the original hub. Beyond even this, the hub of the original has a sloppy fit with the motor shaft. The original eddy brake disc is like a small eccentric cam on your motor shaft, increasing motor vibration. The Eddy brake disc is mounted on the motor shaft, and,in combination with a magnetic bracket which is actuated by a knob on the deck controls, gives some adjustment to the running speed of the deck. This is the result of years of thought, and six months of research, prototyping, and testing, and it is a superb upgrade piece! The center of the disc is reinforced, and more than twice as thick as the original disc where it meets the mounting hub, so it is less likely to be damaged in the future, though proper care should be taken when moving or shipping a Garrard to prevent damage to the eddy brake disc. The fit of the hub is precision honed to the motor shaft, for a smooth and precision fit. The Woodsong Audio 301 Eddy Brake Disc is a drop-in replacement for your existing eddy brake disc. It functions exactly as the original disc, with the same range of speed control. The disc is a slip fit onto the motor shaft, and secures with 4 socket head set screws, and the matching hex key is included with purchase. Shipping is included in the cost, withing the US. International shipping is $20, anywhere in the world.
