I used this protractor last night. Thanks for the link. It really just seems to be straight Stevenson for the LP120. Works nicely! A good starting spot is to have the cart at 52mm overhang when you begin. The cartridges are angled in towards the spindle similar to the Technics ARC, but further back in the headshell around 53mm.
