the bending point should be at 226.9 mm from the center of the little dome and the angle is as Andrew says, 30°.
The length is less of an issue, I think, as a slightly oversize tube could be bent, and then trimmed to length accordingly.
Then bend seems to be the critical bit.
the best thing to do is may be a table indicating the perpendicular distance between the stylus point and the axe of the tube + the distance between E and the stylus point.
Yes, very good idea, a table of different possible effective lengths and associated measurements, I think 10.5" might be a good compromise, the issues seems to be that all the mass and the bearings are on the left hand side of the arm, this may pull thing inwards towards the spindle, if we're not careful.
Perhaps, 10.5" is also a nice compromise between alignment and friction/stiction?
I shall have a think.
