PS-X4 Cartidge alignment

Post by Lahnet » 02 Mar 2018 09:07

I am about to change cartidge on my new old turntable.

This is the data I have:
Pivot to Stylys 216,50mm
Overall arm lenght 300mm
Overhang 16,5mm

What I need to print Conrads template
is Spindel to Pivot.
I guess it is:
Pivot to Stylys 216,50mm - Overhang 16,5mm = Spindel to Pivot 200mm

Could anyone please confirm or correct me on the matter, Thank you in advance

That is correct. With these numbers, using Stevenson alignment and DIN groove dimensions, you will end up with and overhang of ~ 16 mm. If you would want the overhang to be 16.5 mm you can fiddle with the inner groove radius number, something a bit under 59 mm will get you closer.
