Post subject:  Orthophonic needle bar stripped threads

The screw threads on one of my Orthophonic reproducers are stripped so that the screw just slides in and out. The reproducer is otherwise ok so I am looking for an alternative to replacing the needle bar. Is there a slightly larger screw that might work as a substitute?

There are certainly larger thumb screws out there. You’d need to find out what size it is and re-tap the threads on the needle bar.

I have spare needle bars, and ONE original Orthophonic thumb screw left. Removing the bar is intense and precise work ,but i am tooled up to do it.

I have plugged oversized holes with a brass plug and then drilled and tapped it.
