Hi Jon,
                having iron in that area within the field of the magnet is=
not a good idea
you would be much better off to use brass  if you didnt want to use=

    I also notice from your photo's that your pickup wire from the coil
a rather heavy looking wire will also affect the movement of the arm.  The=
practice, if  a person insists of putting the coil on the arm, is to=20
terminate the
heavier wire at the pivot end of the arm and to use VERY FINE  from that=20
termination,  say 24-28 SWG enamelled wire wound in a loose coil say ~ 5=
  of pencil/ pen diameter, then terminate that fine wire on the base of the=
and then run heavier wire  again to the electronics.

I can almost guarantee that the way you have taken your wire off the arm=20
will have
a serious effect on the free movement of the arm!
