Hi Peter,


did you observe the fin like main lever's plane which presses and moves the steuerpimpel ? There mustn't be any grease. Did you clean it?


Best regards!

Hello Kay...thanks for the response.
Yes, the textured surface of the main lever is clean. The steuerpimpel I used is quite a soft rubber. Maybe I will fabricate one from a little stiffer material such as the white core of coax cable.
When the tonearm makes the final 1/2” movement toward the spindle, it is very abrupt. Certainly not a slow sliding motion.
Peter

Hi peter,
that's exactly how I do my steuerpimpels ! I cut 4 millimeters of the core isolation, so I have a cylinder of 4 mm diameter and 4 mm length. Then I drill 2 mm deep into the center, using a 2 mm bit. That's all, and these pimpels work perfectly!
Best regards!

Dual 1249 was the first TT I ever bought! Crazy Eddies in the Bronx, right on Fordham Road! It didn't make it past my #1 son's teen years.

The 1249 appears to be a fine player! It is Dual's biggest belt driven record changer and was only made in 1975 to celebrate their 75th anniversary.
Best regards!
