Default Re: Philips N4520 alignment problems

Good point about wear. The pole pieces look like ferrite, a very hard material. Ideally the material in between tracks 1 and 3 is the same hardness. This may also explain the "too wide" pole pieces. They're not pole pieces. Just preventing uneven wear. But it still looks different from other ferrite head setups.
