Ok, so I aquired a Vv 2-60 portable. The tonearm bracket was bad so I epoxied it. But this tonearm pin left by the pervious owner does not fit. I’m assuming it’s the wrong pin. If it is, can you show me what the correct pin looks like? Thanks!

I cannot get it through the bottom hole to the top of the tonearm because the pin is too large. The 4A is cracked but still playable. (For now lol)

Well, the epoxy part broke off again! :( I guess I’m gonna give up the ghost and just get a new replacement bracket.
