    Looks like the platter may be off centre to me. Does the stylus go up and down or in and out when playing?

    I suspect much of this is down to incorrectly installed bearings and platters that are not lowered centred on to the bearing taper.

    There was an issue with the new Funk platter early on before the depth of the hole in the Funk platter was adjusted, it was made slightly deeper.
    When you apply pressure on the edge of platter with your hand, does it move? Or remain 100% flat? Mine still has a smidgen of play. I believe my platter is the MK1, it has the regular Acromat black & white logo on it. I bought it second hand so have no idea how old it is. The screws that hold the bearing in place on my deck were not a perfect fit, I had to do a bit of wiggling, adjusting, removing and re-trying to get the screws all the way down. The philips heads are nearly threaded as a result : /

    No movement at all, mine is a Funk mk1 too. The threads in the base of the Technics are very easily damaged stripping is very easy. There are small variations in the base of Technics decks I had three hear at one time and there were subtle differences which could explain that issue you have regarding the screws.
