I checked that, it was 1mm, BUT when I was moving the 'control cam' with the roll (which I signed as B on the photo above), then that 1mm changed, and the brake lever is even touching the brake drum (as you can also see on the photo). But I don't know how to move the brake drum, as its center should be at center of the whole system around the tonearm section. I assume that the brake drum has a hole in the center, which is a fixed size, so how to move/change that...
Van_Isle wrote:Also since you would be adjusting the brake drum, I should say that I found that the brake drum set at about 0.7mm on the tonearm shaft as shown on page 5 caused the tonearm to bind when swinging horizontally, so I think mine was pretty much flush with the shaft.
I tried to understand that picture, but I don't really understand what should be 0.7mm. Good photo about that would Help.

I did this couple of times, but I saw that nothing was really happening, so moved the player upside down, and again to normal. When I click the START/STOP button, the player starts spinning normally, but the tonearm doesn't react for anything. Not even if I click the manual button (up/down arrows).

I tried with the record and without, but it's all the same. But now, I always put the record on also, just to be sure that there will be not another problem.
