Lateral weight on Pioneer PL1250

Post by edgarryan » 20 Jun 2019 18:34

I've had this turntable for about five years now, and it is only now that I realized that the tonearm is missing the lateral weight assembly. How important is it? Are there any available? If not, can someone provide me the dimensions so I could ask the machine shop to replicate one? Thanks.

I started a discussion a few weeks ago on arm lateral balance, which may be of some help. I don't think you need the weight. Here's the link. https://www.vinylengine.com/turntable_f ... ce#p981016

Thanks for the reply. Just looks weird that all the other available photos of the tonearm has one, but mine doesn't. If it's too much of a bother, then I'll just ignore the absence of the weight.
