hahaha. thanks for reapeating what I just saidwindcloud5 said:Been there, done that. NO!!!! your double side tape would only work for a few months, after that it would loose its ahesiveness and u will have that problem again. What u need to do is pull the needle a few mm away from the black surface. That will definitely solve your rubbing problem. But u must be careful when you pull the needle out. Do not pull the needle entirely out of the assembly. If you do that, there is a chance your (needle rpm) will not match the real rpm. So becareful how hard you pull or fork the needle out.
