Hi Doug, there are a few guys out there that make new parts for
124's. Unfortunately, they are (along with Garrard 301's and a few
other idler driven tables) have quite a cult following so the prices
are a little high. It sounds like your main bearing is frozen and
it's usually the housing/sleeve. Here's a link to an Audiogon ad for
a new housing.
Just email him to find out if it is the housing.
Hope that helps.
