I think that having the cantilever pulled to one side, while playing, is an indication of the anti-skate being off.

Cheers,

I agree. I had a cart that had the cantilever pulled to one side, when not playing, that I suspect was the result of excess antiskate.

Makes sense. But how do you set the cartridge if the cantilever is misaligned from the factory?

If you would then try to center the cantilever would that not result in an unequal pressure being applied to the stylus?

This is one of those things I am trying to get my head around, I don't often get a good centred cantilever.

So..we could use excessive antiskate values to center back the cantilever if it's factory misaligned? =P~
