ok, you say ‘I knew baerwald protractors, Loefgren protractors, what is that Stevenson it’s somewhere on the internet), Stevenson shed a new light on cartridge. THE REGA BAERWALD ARC PROTRACTOR download this protractor oops, impossible for me to set up my cartridge using your protractor: two possibilities. 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.

Baerwald Alignment Protractor for Turntables

You can always center the stylus over the exact center of both null points. I prefer to use the Baerwald alignment whenever I can for its slightly lower tracking error values, however if it becomes necessary, a different protractor may be needed with some combinations of tonearms and cartridges.

The rest of the guide is correct and well done, but this statment flies in contradiction to the rest of it. For one example of a gage that measures ‘pivot to spindle’, link here. Your name or email address: DarkAuditJan 29, With the platter immobilized, the protractor will be rotated to check adjustment at each null point.

I have to crank the volume much higher than normal to get the usual listening level, and even then it’s muddy. Baerwalv recommend that this very important mounting distance, pivot-to-spindle, is checked and compared to the tonearm alivnment specification.


There is no possible adjustment, right or wrong that would prevent you from achieving this. Steve Hoffman Music Forums. Typically this can happen when pivot-to-spindle distances are made adjustable at the arm board, or if a different tonearm has been incorrectly installed to the turntable.

I used the VPI jig and it was quite easy but somewhat tedious. We can let them know you were interested. TerrySJan 29, Remember to come back and post what you’ve printed as Make. Can you see the slight mis-alignment to the zenith adjustment? Rotate cartridge to align cantilever with grid. This will involve some averaging of the zenith angle between the two points, but the stylus should find exact center over both null points. For an explanation of the adjustment procedure, see the illustration and text below.

To adjust overhang, we must adjust the mounting length between the stylus and tonearm pivot. It takes time and patience to get it just right, but the results are worth it! Stage has shifted a little more left than I’d like instead of more right like beforeand very weak and muffled.

It was pre-mounted for a Technics alignment.

If this is done, the calculator operates autonomously from the rest of the spreadsheet. Ben AdamsJan 29, Click here for cartridge alignment tool.

The method is different. You rotate the gauge and the swing the arm until it is. The default or initial input values are The guide is spot on until you get to this comment, pdotractor this contradicts the rest of it.


There are many ways “Solver” can be used to enhance and expand the capabilities of complex spreadsheets. The akignment image shows the two null points in relation to each other.

Do you already have an account? Phil Elliott pritractor this. You could ask “Solver” to find new innermost and outermost groove radii that would yield Steven’s alignment null-points, and you would also get a graphical representation of Steven’s tracking error and distortion curves. Thanks for the correction.

So my main point is when you are aligning with the grid it all hinges on how good your eyesight is. Simply click the button below and we’ll pass along a note to them. Let Them Know Message sent!

The first cause might be inadequate room in the slots. Please do not enter numbers into any other cells; otherwise you may destroy important equations that enable the spreadsheet to alighment properly. As a word of caution, only six cells on the spreadsheet should be used for entering numbers. If the protractor is a mirrored surface, it will be possible vaerwald visually evaluate the parallel alignment between the cantilever and the grid. A special gage is required.
