Loose arm tubes

My new-used VPI classic 2 rosewood se table was missing some arm accessories , luckily i have a scout and i robbed peter to pay paul and now all is well, however the 10" metal arm tube was loose where it goes into the round housing that sits on the unipivot needle. To make a boring story short i shoo gooed the tube  and made sure it was not at a twist from headshell to rear nut, i also wrapped the tube with teflon tape. This table/cart is really singing!
