Ugh....dropped the stylus on the platter

I was adjusting my turntable level which somehow was slightly out of level and the cue lever was down and arm resting on arm rest. The arm rest has a small magnet that is supposed to keep it there, as there is no locking mechanism. Any how somehow the tonearm fell off the rest and bounced across the non moving platter and leather mat coming to rest near spindle. This is a moving coil sumiko blue point no 2. So,  I took a look and listen and it seems ok to me, but being anal about my audio and system I cant but help stressing over it and thinking I damaged 30 plus years this is the first time I’ve done this...lesson learned I guess, as next time I will ty wrap the darn arm to the rest when making adjustments.
Mijostyn, LOL!
I guess I’m just naturally careful - especially where such mishaps have a severely adverse effect on my wallet!
PTSD doesn’t begin to describe it.  :D :D

Mercifully the last incident was quite a while ago so I’m well into recovery ;) :D :D

Captain Winter,
This is the principle in which a dropped sandwich always falls jam face down on the kitchen floor. As a complication, they always fall to the most inaccessible place ;D
You should be thankful the platter wasn't spinning. Bouncing across something soft where the diamond can dig in would have tore the cantilever right out of the cartridge. I had a loose fitting T-shirt on and bent over my turntable to see the back side. When I stood up straight, I felt a small "tug" on my shirt. I looked down at the cartridge cantilever and it was bent at a 45 degree angle out from the cartridge. Just destroyed a $600 cartridge at the time. Not happy. You should be thankful everything is ok.
Moonglum, that's funny! Yes a sandwich as well as a slice of pizza hahaha. Mr_m that's aweful! Yea I guess I will be could be worse.....
If it sounds OK it more than likely is OK - looks like you got lucky! We all need a support group anyways.
