I recently placed a 1A mechanism in a case and created what is a 2/4 Opera.
With the M in 2 or 4 minute and the stylus on the record and the machine
stopped how far off the record can the stylus be lifted? On most machines this
is around 1/8 of an inch to allow for mandrel play.
The 1A bedplate is different from the Opera so I had an Opera reproduction top
brazed on a 1A stanchion. The first M I tested out the stylus would barely
raise off the record and the second M I tested it would not raise off at all.
I placed washers under the stanchion and will make a shim.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have zero experience with the
Amberola 1, 3, or Opera.
