So u have a stanton str8-80 that I got off eBay for $20. Definitely worth the money but it has no torque. My pt01 has more torque. Any suggestions on how to improve the torque?

It should have the same torque as a Technics (slightly less).If its worse than that maybe the stator is damaged.
But if not broken I would say that modding torque on any turntable has never been a success story so just leave it be.

I'd guess the torq is down to the strength of the motor, i don't think its something you can improve really... without replacing the motor, which is probably unique to that turntable and not interchangeable. The higher end stantons are a different design all together....
I'd get a different deck, vestax pdx models are available 2nd hand for £100-£150 normally...

One thing you could try is getting Slip Sheets from dr susuki, theyll reduce the friction of the slip mat, maybe youll get away with that....
A reall chap way of doing it (not as good) is to jse grease proof paper. You can ask the people in Subway for spare sheets :)

Sometimes the torque on old tables can be improved by taking the spindle apart and lubing it.

probably with a str8-80 you already have all you're gonna get though.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully I can save up done cash and get something better.
