Garrard SP25 Power Switch
 
Good morning

I am looking for a replacement power switch for an SP25 Mk2., part no 70548/03, as the contact breaker inside mine has fatigued and broken off.

Any suggestions for possible sources for Garrard spares would be very much appreciated.

Fitting an industry standard V5 microswitch is what I would do.

This is a common problem and a 'stock fault' on all this series of decks, so any 'old' replacement switch you get will probably be not far off failing again anyway. What I do is repair the original - I posted some info with a couple of pictures several years ago regarding this. The other option is to modify the mechanism/mounting to take a micro switch.

Just found pictures of the repair/bodge. Basically solder on some copper shim to bridge the break and reinforce the broken part. You'll need some needle files and you may need to remove a bit of the plastic.

Yes, that's the one. Thank you for the advice
I will have a go at carrying out the repair suggested and if that doesn't go wello I can obtain a suitable Microswitch and modify the base to suit.
