RE: Getting accurate stylus force gauge readings

My scale does not have a magnetic platform. However, the scale is affected by the powerful magnet in moving coil cartridges, which causes erroneous readings. The platform isn't magnetic, though. If it were, the cartridge would be sucked down to the platform thereby compressing the stylus until the cartridge body was resting on the platform. This doesn't happen. It just gives erroneous readings.
