sorry ... the arm rest is in the wrong position because of me, as seen on the pic the arm's no in use. the arm rest will be put back to its regular place once I'll use the arm again. The only way I found to get the arm at the right angle when playing thick LPs was to let the arm rest go loose and have it put aside ...markcass wrote:Hi
I don't quite see why you need to lower the arm rest(the part that moves up and down when you operate the lever), as there seems to be plenty of clearance between it and the bottom of the arm tube, judging by the first picture.
What does look a bit wrong is the position of the arm rest. I think it's twisted too far round, so it's contacting the yoke. It should be gently turned anti-clockwise, so that the curve is less sharp when viewed from the front, if you follow me. You may need to loosen the silver bolt visible at the top to do this.
You can't lower part nr. 2 in the second picture; this is a fixed part of the arm structure.
Thanks I sort of came to this conclusion meself ...gofar99 wrote:Hi, I ran into a similar issue with an OL Alliance arm. I found two things... one the VTA was set too high (easy fix) and there is a small nylon washer under the lift (part that actually touches the arm) that can be removed. You need to remove the allen screw to get the part off. It is fairly thin, but will give you an extra 1/8 inch or so at the stylus end of the arm if you remove it.
