Different cartridge bayonet mounting

Recommended Posts

This is the first time I found a headshell doesn't fit a standard bayonet tonearm. The headshell is jelco and it has 2 pin. The tonearm is an acid lustre 510. I've got 2 of the same tonearm and one fit and one doesn't. This is how the one doesn't fit looks. It does however work with my old one pin grace headshell.

 

Question is was there multiple bayonet mounting?

Well I have at least 6 tonearm with headshell this is the first time that's like this

I have a 510 and the pin is aligned so the headshell is level across the record

There is actually screw to fix azimuth in the 510. Interestingly my second 510 handles 2 pin headshell fine

You are right
I obtained the nos 510 a few months back
I hadn't noticed the lower slot
Perhaps that's for experimenting with the headshell up side down

I forgot to ask
Where is the screw to adjust azimuth
Thought I should ask before pulling it off the Orpheus

If you see my first picture it's the screw right before the head shell with a plastic washer. it's limited movement but it's enough
