    Default Can ayone machine down this weight

    I have this additional weight for my 1200G and it weighs 15g.

    I just want to get the weight closer to the bearing.

    Thanks

    That's a supplementary counterweight, for balancing heavy cartridges.
    In normal use you shouldn't need it.

    If you want to get the main counterweight closer to the pivot point stick a metal washer to the back of the main counterweight using Blutack - it works a treat.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    The closer to the pivot point the balance weight is the better it sounds.
