A part to fix a broken lid hinge on an old Sony record player.

Recently I got a record player from a garage sale. It works perfectly, except that one of the hinges that holds up the lid was broken. This means that the lid wouldn't stay up on its own.
To solve the problem I modeled the broken part of the hinge and printed it, now it works again.


Start by printing the hinge. When you slice it be sure to turn on full supports so all the parts will print correctly.

Next, disassemble the old hinge by first removing the spring from under a hood in the metal base then sliding the hinge pin out.

Replace the broken part with the freshly printed one, slide the pin back in and re-secure the spring.

For those interested I have also included the NX6 .prt file it was created in.

I know this is super old, but is there any chance you also have a design for the other side of the hinge?

Sorry, I never modelled the other half of the hinge. It is made from metal and I don't think the plastic will be strong enough

No worries, it's for a friend who is desperate to get the piece replaced. I'll have to come up with something else, thanks for putting this up though, really helped me out :)
