So I have had the Numark Total Control for about a year and a half or so now (really just a guess, but it's been a while), and I absolutely love everything about it. It's tough, I (almost) never have problems with it, the jog wheels move flawlessly, the knobs and sliders move effortlessly, and its workflow is very nice.

-install larger wheels (probably lightweight 7" platters for 7" Numark vinyl)
-space out the mixer/EQ section a bit
-make some minor alterations to the placement of each deck's controls and buttons
-of course, make a custom case
I do not know what I will use for platters, but I know that for the top of the platters I want Numark's Ice Blue 7" vinyl, with silver Numark 45 rpm adaptors. All of this will probably simply glue on to the existing jog wheels.

|Hey, I think it would look neat.|
I actually decided to ask Numark how to take the thing apart on Twitter. They referred me to their customer help department, who said this:
"We do not have repair or customization instructions to share, sorry. Although, the screws should be pretty straight forward to get the hardware open. This is not something we will be able to assist you with."
Yeah, sure... well, thanks for replying, at least. It's understandable that they wouldn't want to help anyway.
Now I realise I could save time and get most of the features I want by buying a Numark Mixtrack, but then where's the fun in that?? Besides, I'll have a one-of-a-kind DJ controller. How would that not be cool? Even Kaskade would want one... well, maybe not, but it'll be kinda cool should it be able to be done.
