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.
