The guy who lost interest is now back in the frame.  Progress will be made.  I'm thinking, from bottom to top:

2 x 15mm Birch ply

I don't see any reason it would not work.
One point to bear in mind with the "spark suppression" capacitors as shown in your wiring diagram, the motor terminals remain "live" even when the switch is off as they are still connected via the capacitors to the mains. Many rebuilt turntables of similar design (Garrard, Thorens and Lenco) are/should be fitted with an IEC switched and fused inlet to provide proper protection and isolation.

Ian
I'm now think I might just use one of these IEC switched and fused inlets at the back left of the TT and not have a switch on top front.  Ian, I've looked at the DD11 series on the Schurter website but am am confused by the list of variants at the bottom of the page.  What do I need?  There's a similar one used in this thread with some wiring guidance, but I'm sure I'll end up coming back for more help with that at a later date.

Hi Ifor,

Does your kit of parts re-use the original switch arrangement? It may be more convenient than having to reach around the back of the deck each time you want to turn off/on and you can retain the original spark suppressor capacitor arrangement. 

Ian
Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

Thank you Ian. I've ordered one. The original switch isn't reused. It's a rocket switch operated by a six inch long arm under the top plate.  I think I've flip flopped back to using the push button switch as well.
