SNE V VTA adjustment


Hi,

New to the forum!

I need help with downward VTA adjust on my SME V.

According to the manual you have to screw in the VTA screw until you feel resistance, no problem.

To raise the arm you keep turning clockwise, no problem.

But to lower the arm you turn the screw anti clockwise but all that does is undo the VTA screw! I must be missing something somewhere!

I have read on the forum that you need to release a clamp to do the fine adjustment but there is no mention of that in the manual and I'm not sure which clamp.

Any help gratefully received!

Cheers.

Had the same problem the first time I adjusted a SME V. The post hole has a very tight tolerance. You just have to push the arm down firmly, after unscrewing the VTA adjuster.

Not a very good design IMO. Kind of awkward.
PS There is no locking screw for the VTA.
Downwards VTA adjustment is done by loosening the screws that hold the arm pillar then manually pushing the arm down, upwards is done by use of the adjustment screw. Easiest is to go start a little low then using the adjustment screw to get it perfectly right.

Not a super good design on this otherwise incredibly well designed piece of machinery.

Good Listening

Thanks for the replies. Managed to get the adjustment done.

The arm was originally setup by a dealer. Now I realise that the user manual is about a complete setup from start to finish not a dip in for the odd adjustment.

Thanks again.
