I have three 838 turntables in differant states of operation. on at least two of them it seems that the part of the tone arm that holds the counter weight is bent down slightly. This seems to be, in part, due to the fact that this part of the tone are is not dirctly connected by metal to the rest of the tone. The part of the tone arm that carries the counter weight is connect by way of a rubber bushing of some kind. If this rubber is bent or weekens the weight of the counter weight causes the rubber to bend and you have the counter weight portion of the tone arm hanging slightly lower than the rest of the tone arm?
NOW - if you look inside the tone arm section that holds the counter weight you will see that it is a hollow tube. And that there is a nut and screw inside the tube. This nut seems to be part of the system that holds the counter balance portion of the tone arm to the rubber bushing.
My questin is this - if this nut is tightened will it draw the portion of the tone arm that holds the counter weight CLOSER to the tone arm, causeing more tention and stoping this counter weight section of tone are to stop sagging?
Any ideas or experience in this area?
