Couldn't agree more. This tool has garnered many coverts here as I'm sure you know. Now you can keep it in alignment by periodically rechecking. You'll have better sound than many who've spent many thousands more. That's what's cool about analogue.
I purchased a VPI Scout TT with JM 9 tone arm and Clear Audio Virtuoso wood cartridge and set it up accordingly. I have a EAR 834P Phono amp which runs to a Cary SLP05 Pre. Initially the sound was not good. I was disappointed. I have a Cary 306 CD and guess I was looking for the "Better sound through vinyl" that I'm always hearing about. I purchased the Mint Tractor alignment tool and although time consuming and tedious, WOW. Although settings were off from the manufacturers very slightly, (maybe 1/32 of an inch) when I was finished the difference just blew me away. The lows and highs came in and it was a totally different machine. Very comprable to the 306
