Turntable Assembly

TP 16 Cartridge Alignment Gauge

Thorens shipped their turntables with a cartridge alignment gauge.   The gauge allowed you set the over hang but it is not as accurate as using a protractor.   However, that doesn’t make it redundant.  It allows you to get a quick setup out of the box and it also gets you 90% of the way there.  This saves you a lot of time if do this before starting with the protractor
