    A Spinbox is just a cheap crapola cardboard basic portable turntable, it's not designed for scratching.

    I would not attempt that if you have no prior experience of working on a turntable. Anything cheap is usually not suitable for scratching, because by nature it requires a heavy duty turntable, not something flimsy that will pick up any vibration. Besides, buying all separate spare parts will likely cost more than buying a second hand turntable. Buying a second hand Numark TTX-2 or Stanton STR8-150 will avoid a guaranteed headache.

    The best compromise in a portable scratch turntable is the Numark PT-01, used by people like Sid Wilson.

    Ebay example:

    I agree with you, Spinbox is not a very good quality but it is still expensive ! Not a scratch ready turntable but you can mod it.
    My challenge is to made my own portable scratch turntable, I have already find some elements on China (alibaba...).
    I have 2 numark PT01 scratch and 1 vestax handytrax, plus Serato DVS system.
