Good question. I think you're listening to vinyl records.
I have not forgotten about it. I test solutions individually. I will solve the problem anti skating in the future. I have not designed it yet. Currently, I made a unipivot . I'm testing a technical solution now. It is a combination of a unipivot with a classic arm suspension. I do not know if this system was used somewhere before.

Here is a real world project I just finished using FreeCAD:

A simple set design. I have been working with the techdraw workbench to create drawings I can pass off for someone else to build from. I ran into some issues with the text in this, my first techdraw template here but I think I have figured it out and have a nice new 11x17 template for use on my next FreeCAD design project. The updated techdraw template documentation is much easier than what I was finding before. Nice that the xml can be edited directly in Inkscape.

The images I have are too large to post on the forum. If I get some time later on I will look into making some smaller files to edit the post. Cheers!

Could you also make a separate post on Users Showcase subforum ?
