I may just keep the sellophane film on the fascia of the TT PSU for nostalgia

Thought you had given up for good!
(Except - as I said - on the occasion of a lottery jackpot win when I might just get one as a nice ornament with one or two LPs to show how it works to any future grandchildren.)

I've been having another look at fitting the cartridge, and rather than the bolts being a problem, I think it must be the cartridge.
I've taken a photo of the headshell from above with the cartridge fitted, and it seems to both my wife and I that the cartridge is too wide, as the bolts are not equidistant from the front or rear of the hole grooves in the headshell, and will not move so they are.
Does this make sense?
And any ideas what I can do about it other than buy a different cartridge?

The hole centres should be a standard 1/2 inch . The slots in the headshell should give clearance around the bolts. Where the bloody hell did you get those screws from ?.
They came with the shure cartridge. I have two different length of bolts that came with the turntable, but the problem still remains the same.
When you line up the holes on the cartiudge to the slots in the headshell, the cartridge is about a millimetre or so out, so it's impossible to square the cartridge up correctly whatever screws/bolts you use.
I thought they'd be a standard fitting like you say, but it's a little out.
Blimey you have more chance of giving birth than lining that up then.
If you measure as accurately as you can from the edge of one slot to tother , same side of slot obv , that should measure 1/2 inch. Be very surprised if its the Nima. How loose are the bolts in the slots when you take the cart off.
Have a look at the carts fixing slots for any ally flash.
I've measures as best I can, and the headshell grooves are dead on half inch apart to the centre of the grooves.
The Shure is a little harder to judge while it's fixed to the headshell, but I've taken some more pictures from underneath the headshell, and hopefully you can see that everything is correctly done on my part, so it must be the shure.
arrrgggghhhhh BBB I do have some emphathy for you!
Bolts are tight in the grooves
Bit difficult to see with my eyes BBB. Try tother way , bolts up from bottom nuts on top , ooeerr missus.
Lol, dumb yanks. Probably some old imperial size as they dont do metric. You need some M2.5 bolts and nuts.
Prolly 5-40 unc knowing them ,lol.
These pictures demonstarate that it's the cartridge and not the bolts I think.
But I've tried the bolts that came with the turntable and the problem remains.
My post above demonstrates that it's the cartridge that's at fault.
