RE: Can you hypothesize a mechanism for that?

I have the same metal bodied (I assume it is metal) as you do and have the same issue with my Ortofon Jubilee. The weight goes nuts while lowering the cart down to the measurement point. I constructed a similar gizmo as JE and the 5 gm weight reads the same whether on the platform or cantilevered off on the gizmo. Interestingly, once the cartridge is on the platform or the gizmo, the final weight is close to the same. I just do both measurements and compare. Then I don't worry much because they are very close and I have bigger things to worry about these days.
