    With the V15, when the stylus is on the record, the top face of the
    cartridge must be parallel with the record surface.

  4. Unless the arm is bent (I doubt that), you need to adjust the height
    so that it is level when placed on the record. This is done by
    loosening the setscrew on the base and carefully lowering it. Then
    tighten setscrew.

    Ok, thanks. Also confusing, the lever arm doesn't seem to have any effect,
    I'm starting to think it might be broken. Which really bites on a headshell
    with no raising handle...

    Are you sure? The pin is pretty small and, if the arm is not set up
    right, will not contact the cue plate. Also, you can replace the
    headshell with a standard one sporting a lifter.

    definitely not sure. It is just a pin, I had assumed that there was
    supposed to be something on the end of that pin to contact the arm. Is that
    pin supposed to be under the arm even when it's in the locked position?

    That arm is similar to the one on my Sony 2251.

    The pin has a TEE shaped plastic part on the top of it. which does not contact
    the arm when on the rest mount.

    Mine has a headshell with a lifting handle.

    If you need further info, contact me and I will pull out the camera and send
    you a picture.

    Probably, exactly so.

    Yes and that is one of the first pieces lost in transit/removal.

    Next week, when I hope to have some time to breath, I will try to scan
    the manual for the arms.

    Can you provide a picture/drawing of the TEE? I will have my
    machinist make one or two.
