    Nice work how the Alphason headshell connects to the armtube. Beautifully made.

    Yes it's marine animal-like. I hope those bolts have a soft washer.

    nice one,thanks!
    i started getting the 774 ready for fitting on sunday,
    the 1st job was to drill out the headstock for fitting a 2m black. dont worry i have a spare unused one as well



    2nd job was to make a new bias line,the old one had snapped twice and been repaired by the previous owner,this has left it too short.


    the weights now sit much better and cover the full range of the arm,before they tipped past 90 degrees.



    ive got another tonearm board to make at the weekend,although the general view on here and other forums is for the alphason...ever get the feeling your wasting your time? lol

    How does a cart normally fit?

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it...

    its because the 2m black has captive threads in the cartridge.

    They look the same length lol.

    I don't think you're wasting your time with the 774. It could be the ugly duckling.

    I'm still unsure of how 'normal' carts fit.

    Wot's not to get?? (threaded carts, or nuts and bolts - all the same way):

    Ha ha... just done some more searching and discovered where your coming from Gary...!

    Normally the headshell isn't drilled and . . .how would a threaded cart be fitted from below? Easy for a Denon or an AT with bolts up from the bottom, but good question re a threaded cart....

    LOL......
    And the manual doesn't clarify matters much either, stating:

    Mission774.2.JPG

    Obviously only for 'lugged' carts and definitely not threaded jobs!!

    Ok, so in the standard 'headshell' there are holes at the bottom that don't go all the way through?

    How is adjustment done? I guess the arm mounting has to be very precise.
