Would someone be kind enough to help a computer illiterate oldish man to find the correct protractor /arm aligner for the revolver rebel has a jelco arm I am advised does not have revolver written on but has a small silver disk on top and a small silver screw/allan bolt either side on an angle ie 10 o clock and 4 o clock.the arm length is 290mm from end (behind weight) to arm tip , it is between 220 _230 mm from pivot to end of arm ,can someone please post a link to correct items needed and not a "you can get that stuff in tools " I can't. Thanks guys and girls

A 2-point universal Stevenson protractor should work

A 2-point protractor can be used with any arm.
With a 2-point protractor, set the stylus on the crosshairs of the outer grid, and square the cartridge to it.
Move to the inner grid, stylus on crosshairs.
If the cartridge angles toward the middle of the record, move it forward a bit, and start over.
If the cartridge angles away from the middle of the record, move it back a bit, and start over.
When the cartridge sits squarely in both grids, stylus on crosshairs, you are done.
When you have used a protractor, do not then try to adjust the cartridge to any other "overhang."

Cheers,
Alec
