RE: And I can position it right at the surface of the record. It is also non-magnetic. nt

I'm sure I've seen scales like that in a head shop 25 years ago.
On the original topic I too get a reading with a hovering stylus above the plate, I also get different readings depending on stylus height due to the arm geometry. There is also some variation depending where on the plate the stylus lands but there is a least a dot to aim at. Amongst all this I don't expect an accurate reading but if I hit close to the same spot each time and I don't adjust the arm pillar height I can get a fairly precise one which serves as a reference while adjusting VTF. My ears can tell me if it needs more or less, though not always straight away.
