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. Thanks, Steve
