Is this a joke? If this is your question, then you are the one who can't read or even remember what you've written. The original post states that 78-rpm styli have 2.7-mil to 3-mil tips. You yourself wrote that microgroove styli are 0.7-mil to 1-mil. You know as well as I do that these are the radial dimensions of the spherical tip of conical styli.

> Your responses have become somewhat insulting.

Really? Well, this is my last response so you should be happy.
