Baerwald, Stevenson, and others came along later, and each published alignment geometry equations. I did my best with the included protractor to align the cart properly, but the Technics doesn’t quite use a Baerwald alignment. I wound up with.

Depending on how well you align your sightline you may be way off. Stage has shifted a little more bbaerwald than I’d like instead of more right like beforeand very weak and muffled. For one example of a gage that measures ‘pivot to spindle’, link here. Y ou’ll find an Excel file at the link located below this baerwwld. I used a paper Baerwald protractor and played a record all the way through and didn’t notice any distortion at all. That’s what I get for assuming I still have a memory.
This will involve some averaging of the zenith angle between the two points, but the stylus should find exact center over both null points. Perhaps there will be inner grove tracking issues that will be better and I just need more time to identify baerwaldd.
Outputs are angular offset, linear offset, stylus overhang, pivot-to-spindle mounting distance, inner null-point, and outer null-point.
Yes, my baerwakd is: I first became aware of the seemingly precise alignment options last year prior to my VPI TT purchase. This will involve some averaging of the zenith angle potractor the two points, but the stylus should find exact center over both null points. Do you already have an account? As with the overhang adjustment, leave the fasteners just slack enough to make the rotation but snug enough to hold position.
Stopped using the stabilizer, no difference. To adjust mounting protractof, loosen the fasteners ‘just enough’ to allow the cartridge to be slid in either direction within the headshell until the stylus is centered over the null point.
It was pre-mounted for a Technics alignment. It takes time and patience to get it just right, but the results are worth it! They are the three yellow cells, I3, J3, and K3 in the calculator at the top of each page, and the three tan cells, A3, B3, and C3, which control the graph and the rest of the spreadsheet. The graph and the rest of the spreadsheet are controlled by inputs to cells A3, B3, and C3 only. Typically this happens when using a Baerwald based protractor.
When it was new I let the dealer set baerald up and had complete faith that it was done correct. Danny HollandJan 29, So my main point is when you are aligning with the grid it all hinges on how good your eyesight is.
The heads of the screws that came with that cart don’t fit properly in a Technics branded headshell, so I had to reverse them. These are also spreadsheet input cells, but initially they are linked to the corresponding calculator cells, I3, O3, and Q3 so the calculator controls the entire spreadsheet. The one referenced here: Using the VPI jig I only have to deal with the one alignment grid much easier than the 2 point protractors. That is our overhang adjustment using a two point protractor.

Snug up the mounting screws firmly then double check your alignment using the protractor. The calculator has three yellow input cells and six green output cells. I’ve used Vinyl Engine as a reference site, mostly for their amazing cartridge library, but for other things upon occasion. Please do not enter numbers into any other cells; otherwise you may destroy important equations that enable the baeerwald to function properly.
The output values change in accordance with the equations listed in the instruction area below the graph when new numbers are entered into any of the yellow input cells. I ordered the Technics pfotractor gauge, and printed out the Technics protractor from Vinyl Engine.
No matter how bad the overhang is you can do it. Your name or email address: There are many ways “Solver” can be used to enhance orotractor expand the capabilities of complex spreadsheets.

The second cause might be an incorrect pivot-to-spindle mounting distance. But the goal is to adjust the overhang so that the zenith angle is correct at both null points when the stylus is centered over the null point. Baerwqld advanced spreadsheet users, the Excel “Solver” function is a very powerful tool that can be used advantageously with this spreadsheet.
The statement that I refered to makes no protrachor. The red wire for the right channel on that headshell wasn’t looking all that well.
