It was my pleasure to help Jon. I have a Clearaudio protractor and it was much better when I bought a linen magnifier then used a LED torch* with it. I found the humble two point protractor works better when I can it see the stylus and cantilever properly.

*one of those little LED torches allows you to light from the side or nearly front on, depending which is easiest for you.

More recently I got one of the headband magnifiers with lights like yours. Handy with the mirrored protractor panel I now use with the Clearaudio rig and it is also great for model railway details BTW.

Hi Jon
Yet to use both to check my turntable but I have used the headband magnifier and it was a big help so it should be vary use full for checking my cart set up, what I like is the light is always where you need it (hope that makes sense) and the mirrored protractor will be a big help too with my poor eye sight, I need glasses for long and short sight so I can't always focus properly if you no what I mean

Agreed. I know what you mean. I have glasses for astigmatism and short sight so agree about the benefits of magnifier lenses and better illumination, making cartridge alignment much easier for me. Hope it goes well for you too Jon.

Hi Jon
yes it did go well, on Sunday I used both to check the alignment so much easier (every thing was OK)
