RE: New Jelco TK-850S Tonearm

I don't know the answer to your question, but I would recommend always using an arc protractor to align your cartridge for the most accurate alignment. The beauty of an arc protractor is that it's easy to adjust overhang so the stylus follows the arc and then you know that overhang is set correctly. After that, it's a simple matter of adjusting offset angle at either of the two null-point alignment grids for a perfect alignment. After setting offset angle, go back and make sure the stylus still follows the arc exactly and you're done.

You can print your own arc protractor using Conrad Hoffman's Custom Arc Template Generator for Phono Cartridge Alignment. You can find Conrad's arc protractor printing program at the link below:
