Thanks to all for your input.

Here are some pictures of the improvements made and the result.

1. Chrisís improvements to my Lehman Seismometer The L bracket for support.

2.This is also Chrisís suggestion, however only one ball bearing did not work as well, as I wanted. I got a lot of vertical oscillation. I used 2 ball bearings, and it made a big improvement!!!!!
Thanks Chris..

3.This was something I had seen in pictures on the net probably PSN seismographs.
It is an aluminum rod, very small  in diameter, used in place of wire (except for at each end). This also helped stop vertical oscillations.

4. This was an improvement as a suggestion from several PSN list members. You said I needed heat, so I put a heat pad on top of the box. This was a 100% fix. I do not get the drifting noise I had. Thanks..

THE RESULT!!!!!!!!!!!!
