    Al, I have a jig for setting up the Encounter. PM me your address and will send it.
    Its nowt special just a Aluminium bar drilled for the spindle + 2x 5mm holes (one for the 9.5 & one for a 12" OL) A 5mm bolt goes through the hole and into a 23mm brass plug that sits in the arm hole in the arm board.
    As has been stated above pivot to spindle distance is 222mm. Effective length (pivit to stylus) is 239mm, so 17mm overhang. Most generic protractors will match in with this, even the freebie from an 80s hifi mag you've probably get t stashed in a drawer somewhere.

    Hi John , Thanks for the offer


    Does it come with said 23mm brass plug ? and do you know when used what tangential curve it would be ?

    I am aiming for Baerwald / Loefgren A IEC or Loefgren B IEC

    Is basically the pivot to spindle beam and armboard plug to set the correct P to S distance.
    No need to return it as I now have a Dr Feikert.
    You will need a regular protractor for setting the cart.

    I can now confirm the arm is now set up spot boll-k on , 2 Hours of arm off arm back in , tweek here tweek there its done .

    I must extend thanks to MIKE Mikeyb for the very generous use of his Smartractor , Without this it would be imposible to get the arm / cart set to what I now see as 99.9% accurate , THANKS MIKE , your a dimond geezer

    How does it sound now , Well its a long time since I have had the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and have that tingly feeling down my spine , It now sound awesome ( Not a word I use often ) it's bloody amazing

    I have Floyd wish you were her playing , Close my eyes and Gillmore is in the room up front playing lead guitar

    The Bass rifts are amazing as is the keyboard playing

    My OH my this blows all my previous attempat into the weeds , I though my Mike new 1210 was good but this is so many levels better

    Bloody Hell

    I have not had a smile this wide for a good few years

    Oh lordy lord

    If it can make the hairs on the top of your head stand up and put Daisy Duke in the room I’m getting one...

    Seriously though, really glad you’re loving it Al.

    You deserve a sit down now and a wee glass of something nice

    Well that is great news, I am really pleased for you, so now you can stop playing with amps now and just plug in the best of your vast selection of speakers until you find the ones that work best.

    Then sell all the others and possibly think about a super duper pair of speakers, now lets see, Wilson Benesch - Cardinal or Eminence, Rockport, top end Tannoys, or maybe Ocellia. Best check what weight your floor can take with some of those.
