I have a Technics SL 10 turntable. I’m looking for the opaque paper mats in order to play translucent vinyl, as the sensors do not allow my records to play. Anyone know where/how to source these ?

I meant Technics/universal turnatable paper opaque mats that are precut...preferably for the SL-10 format

No, that is translucent...sorry, I guess I'm not being very "clear". I need an opaque (non-transparent) paper mat for the platter b/c the digital scanner on the SL-10 can't ready translucent vinyl records, thus will not play the record.

The SL-10 new came with 2 paper mats by Technic. I am looking for these after market or used originals. Or a solution!

A couple of options

Use the existing mat as a template and cut your own

Buy a translucent one and prime and paint the back of it
