Post Grace 727 specs needed

Hello all,

I'm wondering if anyone could provide me with the specs for a Grace 727 tonearm that I would like to mount up in my turntable. I would like all the specs for reference, but ultimately all I really need right now is the arm pivot to platter spindle distance.

Thanks,
Robert

Hello,

Tonearm length should be standard 222mm.
I did some searching on the web but the 727 didn't return anything useful.
Should be pretty close to the 707 in overall dimension though.

Rgds,

Wink Saying Grace...

Thanks very much! I have an Oracle maintanance kit coming for my Delphi. Once I get it installed I'll mount up this arm and start tweaking. After I've said Grace, of course.

Kind regards,
Robert

Robert,

Nice to see you posting instead of just lurking

It is good to see fdgrove confirm the general rememberances of the local Victoria crowd.

For the benefit's of other forum members: the 727 is a 707 with a removable headshell (unique to the 727) and like the 707 the headshell geometry doesn't quite jive with the Braerwald (sp?) alignment as exemplified by the Dennesson protractor*. The cartridge has to be pulled forward (IIRC) and certainly twisted a bit wrt the headshell slots.

* i understand someone is finally releasing a new protrator based on the Dennesson. Anyone know anything about it?

Interesting.
Doesn't ring a bell here.
More precise then?

Any vinyl addict out there?

Frank.

The Dennesson was similar in layout to this Claeraudio one and when we started using it in the late '70s it was amazing how much better the TTs sounded. It was also amazing how few arms of the day had correct geometry. Sometimes you would have to get a file out and tweak the mounting slots on the head to get a proper alignment. Mine dissappeared during my hifi hiatus and i'd love to get a replacement -- the local hifi store will set up a TT for free, but it would beat the h*** out of having to haul the TT down there.

Default Protractor

Hi again Dave,

Although I am familiar with the Deneson protactor as such and I've got a couple of files I culled in from the web, (I can post or mail you)I was under the impression you were referring to something even more refined/precise than the Deneson.

Oh,yes,some arms were definitely off the mark,no matter what you tried.
So let me know what it is you may want.

Cheers,

Frank.

Here is one template I found in a hurry:

Still can't find a way to attach a file to my posts,so I'll have to find another way.

Sorry.
