Rega Planar 3 - Tonearm screw issue


Recommended Posts

So, as per other threads I've pulled the trigger on the RP3

 

Installed a 2M Blue and again, so far so good. 

 

However, I installed a spacer and 2 of the screws aren't going in properly, They're taking, but they're not getting full purchase like the threading has almost gone. 

 

Question is, can I simply get a longer length screw than the stock one (30mm...?)

 

I don't really want to take it back if I can help it

 

Cheers

Yes but you have to get the tread size right. Generic screw might not have the same thread

take the old screws with you when you buy the longer one, i did this on my Rega Planar 2, no issues

2M carts are a breeze to fit. Why a spacer? 

2m is 18mm high, where as rega's are 14mm. I know there's the entire VTA argument and honestly, I haven't been able to tell the difference
