Really beautiful, Marek, both the design and the execution. You just keep outdoing yourself.

Thanks dudes,
Making tonearms was more fun then my other audio projects, probably because less commercial parts were involved. Extreme audio is a fanatical hobby, I think I am cured. Shoddy, broken Lowther driver was all I needed to end the obsession. I still have to repair the driver, this time without any passion.

Marek,

I know I am banned from this thread but can I just sneak in and say this? Outstanding work!

Ok, back to the sideline.

With the tonearm (post #59) I gave away commercial tonearm lift that I took from my other tonearm. I made new lift. Because of my primitive tools I had to choose different lift mechanism.

Very nice work as usual, Marek. I especially like the way you got both the vertical guide and the stop inside the column.

I was afraid one could not see from my pictures how the mechanism works. Your comment took my worries away, thanks,
Marek
