Tonearms without anti-skate, damage to records?

I am picking up a pivoted tonearm without any provision for bias (anti-skate) force. I would appreciate opinons on if using this arm can damage my records or phono cartridge due to the lack of this feature. Thanks.


@rauliruegas I will always have a long way to go because I enjoy doing it. I spent yesterday rewiring the basement amplifier shelf with a new 20 amp service for the MA 2s. I also had to rework the trigger system. Atmasphere designed and equipped my amps with a special trigger. When presented with a 12 volt trigger (the industry standard) the amp's filaments light up first then about a minute later the B+ is triggered and the amps go operational. He did not charge me a cent for it! I hope he gets to sell it to other people as an option. Because my amps are under the speakers in the basement I could not live without a trigger system. Perhaps I am the guinea pig. I am totally fine with that. 

I am not at all sure about the tweeters yet. I have to see how the new amps do.

Thanx for the compliment. I do not think the subwoofers are high resolution...yet. They will be if I don't die first. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, here we witness the results of audiophiles not taking their medications.

I recently restored a Technics SL-6 linear tracking turntable, with a simple replacement of the tiny belt that drives the cartridge mounting mechanism.  I am extremely impressed with the overall performance of this unit - even with a relatively inexpensive Audio Technica AT-92e pickup.  If you are willing to accept the limited selection of P-mount cartridges available - these types of turntables supply an ideal solution to the complex "skating" problems inherent in all pivoted tonearms.  Furthermore, the convenience features of these units provide an additional incentive to go this route!
