Dimitris (or anyone else), can you help with a question about my TP 16 Mk I arm?
I've gotten the tube out, but I can't find a way to remove the clear plastic collar at the end of it. (I want to save this because I want to keep the ability to swap headshells after the rewire is done.) I've removed the tiny pin through the plastic collar, but the diagonal bar (with two sharp pointy ends) that bisects the tonearm at the other end is preventing me from sticking anything down the tube to push the collar out. I tried a thick piece of wire, but it doesn't work.
So, how can I remove that sharp pointy bar? If I could only remove that (without breaking it), I think my job would be a lot easier. As it is, I'm stuck.
