I haven't heard that one before - what differences did you hear with the rings on/off?
Certainly beats taking the fingerlift off.

This one would be pretty easy to diy...

Lot's of good info here.

I believe I've figured out my problem. I was listening to a record the other day when I noticed my subwoofer wasn't doing anything. I pulled the left channel plug from it and BOOM. I got my multimeter and discovered the hot and ground plugs were reversed on one channel of the cartridge. <Slap hand on forhead>.

The imaging is correct, the bass is there, and much less hum. I just never thought the previous owner would have wired it up wrong.

Just a listening note. This turntable sounds much better than anything else I have including my cheapo SACD player!

surely o-rings on the fingerlift just increases the weight that can be excited into vibration...
