I tend to set antiskate by ear. Listen for balanced channels (you need good hearing in both ears for this so get the wax cleared). Also do fine adjustments to see how this affects the sound balance. I find with the modified Rega I use that sound is more 'open' with ant-skate set quite a bit lower than the playing weight. This will vary according to arm. Would agree in using a test disc if you are not competent or inexperienced with the particular arm used. As mentioned before putting the stylus on the dead wax is of no use. However the stylus should catch the last run out groove and not skate over the label. There appears to be a general problem with anti- skate on Hanpin arms judging from posts about the AT and Pioneer tables.
