    Thanks. Is the Rustoleum Semi Gloss a match for the paint McIntosh used on transformers of the MC2505?

    Not sure how accurate this is, but this measurement is showing the shaft diameter as 0.22 inch. This tool may not be 100% accurate so...

    The Jico is better made, fits the older bodies perfectly. And tracks better than the Mexican made recent versions.

    I'm pretty sure the OEM 0.22" idler shaft just screws on to the arm from the underside.

    Thanks - I couldn't find one with an 11/32 OD. Are they unobtanium?
