Increasing lift of SME 3009
« on: October 06, 2017, 06:43:16 PM »
Is there a way to increase the amount of lift for this arm? Mine has insufficient lift to the extent that, with the arm above the record, the stylus does not quite clear the record.

Is the top of the headshell parallel with the LP surface or does it slope? 

Your arm may sit too low in the collar. 
The lift can be lowered or raised too.   Perhaps a few peekchas?

Temporary solution perhaps?

No problem Vleisman and thanks for the tip. As for the blue sweety; where does one administer this on the TT?  :ROFLMAO:

I would have submitted a peekcha or two had I known how.

In the meantime I have raised the pillar a couple of mm's which solved the problem.
