Dave Strider Turntable Tutorial

By deerlette
Holy shit. That file is fucking massive. Holy god.
I'm so sorry.
But not really because this is the best tutorial.
But yeah! That's EVERYTHING you need to know about that.


turntable designs belong originally to Hussie dsahkdjhak

i don't even care
i fixed y'alls dumb problems that weren't even a real problem you guys are so smart why.

anyway, i put it off for too long because that file is a terror to open.
and it is so perfectly hideous that i will look away now.
i will never touch this file again.
you're welcome.

Would it still be durable if you have to use cardboard?
deerlette's avatar
As long as it's corrugated it would probably still be v durable. The only problem is you will have to find a way to overcome the ridges that corrugated cardboard makes!

thank you for this. any ideas where I can get records for real cheap?
deerlette's avatar
eBay is a pretty nifty site for that :|a but honestly if you can find a record store locally u can definitely nab some records for cheapsies
starfruit-anon's avatar
Thank you so much. I can't seem to don't them anywhere :/ but then again I don't really use eBay so...

How big should the foam board be?
JaneTower's avatar
using an actual record is 8etter and way more authentic. tho a 8it heavier, still looks a LOT 8etter and is actually really cheap too. 
:D 8ut those still look cool :D

So, I'm on the first gear thing, and I just finished xactoing the notches. The cuts are not smooth enough for my liking, is there any ways to make them smoother?
deerlette's avatar
Definitely! Run and get yourself a couple pieces of sandpaper :0! I'd start with a rougher sandpaper first and then a finer one. Then just sand the edges until they are smooth enough for your liking :0!!!

One last question! Since I don't have any spray paint, and I can't get any, what else could I use to paint my timetables?
