Bad Start to the Day

Posted by: Eoink on 09 December 2018

At about half 8 this morning I decided I had time to play an album before going out to meet a friend, so I took the lid off the Roksan. I then reached for a book on the bookshelves beside the turntable, knocked another book which managed to fall and land on the Artemiz arm. It seems to moved the arm body off the pivot. Iíve had another look while at home briefly this afternoon, and canít see a way to fix it. Iíll call Roksan tomorrow to get acontact details of a repair agent in the not too distant area, but  as Iím away until Friday  this week, I suspect Iíll  have no turntable and will need to rely on the streamers until after Christmas.

Being as clumsy as I am, I should know better than to multi-task before my morning coffee has cut in.

Ouch! (quotation from your turntable!).

I feel for you having broken a Krystal cartridge (twice)!

I got my replacement reimbursed through my home contents insurance, you might like to try this yourself.

 

Hope you get it back operational soon.

Jolly bad luck Eoink. I'm sure you were philosophical about it, allowed yourself an ironic little chuckle, slapped the ol' thigh, and just carried on.

Hope you get it fixed OK - good tip from Allan regarding an insurance claim.

Ouch.  Very sorry to hear of your mishap.

Ouch !

I sure hope that last half bottle that I prescribed after your success in the Brain Teaser Thread was not in any way involved !

I do hope things turn out ok.

Cheers

Don

Completely Tony, I took the opportunity to review my English vocabulary , I was quite impressed by the range of words I found to describe myself.

Thanks for the support everyone, and thanks for the insurance tip Allan. Don, I donít think the wine was involved, I was just doing two things at once, not really paying attention to either and got unlucky.

Maybe move the bookshelf!?

Posted on: 09 December 2018 by Eoink

Good suggestion Chris, but theyíre a pair of floor to ceiling oak bookcases made for the room, so no space to put them anywhere else. Itís a reasonable distance to the deck from the shelves, if I tried to replicate the act I think it would take me a while, I think it dropped, hit my arm and bounced sideways.

@EOINK

Is there a happy ending to this event. Time is a great healer...

Thanks for asking Andy, Roksan suggested ĎIíd probably knocked it off its bearings, which is a return to factory job. They suggested a localish dealer whoíd send it back, I dropped it off with them on Monday as Roksan are back from their Christmas break, just waiting now for the quotation.
