i have an old hamilton electronics corporation taurntable i bought off ebay about a year ago. i think it was made in the sixties sometime. the neddle is word out, but it is not the cartridge kind like i am used to seeing. instead it is a white piece of plastic that fits into a hole in the arm. anyone know where i might be able to find a replacement?

I've bought many needles and other phonograph stuff from Garage-A Records:


Their web site is badly designed and some needles are hard to find on it so I recommend you phone them for help identifying your needle.

At good, old Radio Shack (last I knew) they had big, thick record needle book. I think they still can order radio tubes too...

I suggest you consult the turntable guru, Todd The Vinyl Junkie

If he can't help, nobody can
