Well, I finally did it. I added a second arm to my Prime Signature. And I did it without altering a thing.

I cut a 5/8" thick piece of black Delrin and made it into a clamp for the disc at the top of the rear left foot. I also used it for a platform to mount a JWM Tone Arm base. Checked the location with my Feickert Alignment protractor to assure the pivot point was in the correct position, and tightened the screw for the clamp. Now, I have two tonearms to align. What have I done!

Very nicely done and welcome to the dual tonearm family. Mono cartride or just another stereo?
