I found out a small digital jewelers scale works well to measure phono cartridge tracking weight or force.Usually in grams.Just worked on a Califone that the tracking was set to low.Someone taped a penny to the end of the tone arm in an atempt to fix the skipping problem even with a new stylus/cartridge.
