Hi Tanoj..

This is one to find difficult. You may use Laser Disc as an alternative. Which is also 12inch size.

You need a grooved record for the stylus to be subjected to skate, which is a vector force caused by the offset angle of the cartridge/headshell combination to the linear axis of the tonearm. This force, i.e.skate, is only activated when the groove is in motion, not otherwise. A blank record will just cause the stylus to slide all over the place.

Your best bet is to go with the anti-skate settings recommended by the tonearm manufacturer, and hope for the best.

A point to ponder about using non grooved disc (LD), to balance the centric forces is, tracking force

A clip from another from

{{{{One technique I have used is to find an old LP that you do not care about which has a large section of the lead-out groove. The lead-out groove is the area around the center of the LP after all the music tracks are completely finished. You will notice that this area is shinny since it has a widely-spaced lead-out groove. Place the stylus (very carefully) on this shinny part of the LP. If you have zero anti-skating set, the stylus will zip right away towards the spindle (because there is so much centrifugal force on it). As you gradually start increasing the anti-skating (the operative word here is "gradually"!) you will notice that the speed at which the stylus moves towards the spindle/center gradually slows down. Keep increasing the anti-skating until - you guessed it correctly! - you see the stylus move outwards i.e. away from the spindle/center. At this point you have too much anti-skating! Back off/reduce the amount of anti-skating such that the stylus slowly moves towards the spindle/center. Note that you will have to carefully put the stylus on the shinny lead-out groove part again & again as you gradually adjust the amount of anti-skating.}}}}

If you can't locate a laser disc, you can even use a clean Perspex disk (which you can get fabricated locally)
