hole

Post by kota » Sat Nov 05, 2016 1:01 am

Hi there

I'm seriouslly pondering getting a Kore in the near future. Wayne has me on the waiting list already but I will need to open the pre-drilled hole to accomodate my present Ittok arm rest. I know I might regret it in the future if I get an Ekos and will need to use the cap to cover it. Has anyone done that here and was able to live with it afterwards ???

Cheers,

Pedro

Pedro,

I wouldn't worry about it, go ahead and enjoy the Kore/Ittok :g-thumb:

If/when the time comes to trade-up to Ekos simply trade up to Keel too.

In the days before integrated sub-chassis/armboard when the armboard was a separate entity there was a small plastic plug which could be inserted in the hole. I suspect these might still be available, at least in the dealer network, if not from Linn.

Peter has plugged my hole :shock:

When he fitted the EKOS to my previously ITTOK'd Kore he fitted the little bung thing in the armrest hole. It looks OK to my eyes, almost like a slightly raised bush that you would drill out if you had an ITTOK to fit.

Thats the best pic I could get as a close up. Ignore the lump of dust next to the plug. Brush one off, two return :roll:

James,
This is a good shot of your bung.

Thanks girl and guys :D

Looking at it really doesn't make too much of a difference. A long time ago I did actually had one of these caps in one of my former LP12's

If and when Cymbiosis find me one, I'll ask Peter to finish the drilling anyway. I reckon I'll be using my present Ittok LVII for quite a while longer but that's just fine.

Cheers

When Peter fitted the bung is really snapped home. I could hear it from across the room. He looked at me and said "that comes from drilling the hole correctly in the first place"

Slightly oversized hole and it would rattle like a Austin 7 on a cobbled street.

I've always felt that a hole in an armboard, Kore, Keel etc in that vicinity is best used for an Aro armrest pillar :wink:
