Technics sl-j3 platter replacement

Hi there internet audiophile's, I'm hoping to get some information on a replacement platter for Technics sl-j3. I know for the original part my best bet is to just watch eBay, but does anyone happen to know of other brands or aftermarket products that fit this table? Any help is appreciated,

If you are talking about the round rotating part of the product, you should know that those kind of products and parts are essentially exclusively proprietary, custom made for that specific model (or related models). Your chances of finding a compatible part are essentially zero except for the ones made specifically for that make and model. Do you have a product with a missing or damaged turntable? A very experienced metalworker could probably create a suitable replacement, but you could probably buy several complete units for parts for less than the cost of creating a new one. Replacing the turntable seems very unlikely except from a "donor organ" from a like product.

Here is one on Ebay Probably as cheap as you are going to find a replacement. FWIW
