Stainless has to be subjected to high moisture and/or no air movement in order to rust. If you have the tonearm in use in a normal indoor invironment then there should be no problem. Go to an auto parts store and buy a can of metal polish wadding and polish off the rust with that. Please be sure to keep the tonearm away from the cartridge, turntable, etc. while polishing. It would be best to remove the tonearm from the plinth. Make sure that all of the polish is thoroughly removed when you are finished. Do not use any kind of oil or wax on the tonearm. It will end up on your cartridge and on your records.
