There is a demand for the next older style headshell sled used on the Dual 1009-1019 turntables, the TK 11/12. There's a guy selling very nice 3D printed examples, (with good wires, gold plated spring pins instead of leaf springs,) on ebay for a whopping $45. The locking mechanism is the same, but the contact arrangement is slightly different, including a 5th central contact that grounds a foil shield. I'd design a replacement from scratch, but I have ZERO original sleds, and those go for similar money. Think you might share the design files for this so I can modify it into a TK 11/12? That head start plus being able to test-fit into my project (not the brand, the condition) 1019 should do the trick. Here's a link to the auction, rich with photos: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291307467460

Any help appreciated. Eric.

P.S. I now see that you posted a 123dx file, and I tried to convert it to something I could use, failed. Any chance you can export to a step, iges, scad or fcstd file I can manipulate in FreeCAD?
