The Cartridge Man
Digital Level Gauge -
"It is a well known fact that for optimum
performance, a turntable should always be precisely leveled. Whilst
bubble-levels have always been used for the leveling procedure, best
accuracy is not always guaranteed and it can certainly be frustrating to
centre the bubble. The Cartridge Man has now introduced a highly
accurate, easy-to-use and all-electronic Digital Level Gauge.
This unit presents a digital read-out of both planes simultaneously to a
resolution and accuracy of 0.1o. Four quadrant LEDs give an
unambiguous indication of which side(s) need lowering or raising."
digital level is incredibly accurate and simple to use. The only
thing worth watching is that the surface you are leveling is
the actual level. If you're leveling the platter, place the level on
three parts of the platter (in case there is some inaccuracy in the
platter itself), then directly over the spindle. On some cheaper
platters, you might well find they don't agree at which point it's
worth figuring out where the problem is."
The real revelation has been
the rapidity with which this apparent luxury has become an indispensable
part of my tool kit. ... as I said in the first piece I wrote, I think the
Digital Level is the ideal tool for the dealer. Now I'd go further and say
that for anyone who takes the job seriously, then it's essential equipment.
This thing is a DIY-ers delight. Expensive ? Yes, but then the best normally
