It is unlikely to be too heavy (can cut scratches in the grooves if it is). If it is too light then you will know because the record will skip. If that is the case, then an old trick I used to use was to add a penny onto the top of the stylus cartridge to add a bit of weight.
That's the advise that I was seeing, using a penny, washer or similar to change the weight of the arm. It's definitely not adjustable on the model I have, nor can I change the arm for a better one.

I'm worried about vinyl damage, which is why I'm not prepared to play my nice records on it. I wasn't sure whether I wouldn't know if it was too heavy or not.
Calippos are made from calipers and hippos
