nitratefury: Greetings, all! I just bought a nice and functional Columbia Grafonola K-5 and want to know how to clean the wood inside the lid and protect the beautiful decal in there. Here is a picture: Jan 10, 2014 22:39:33 GMT -6
nitratefury: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153693902750527&l=6eb105d24e Jan 10, 2014 22:39:52 GMT -6
nitratefury: Notice the grayish splotches--that's what I want to remove. A colleague has recommended Kotton Klenser for the rest of the cabinet, Jan 10, 2014 22:41:33 GMT -6
ginny: I have a Standard Amplifying Horn for a talking machine and it is a Mamma size at 36.5" blk trunk with brass bass what is and aprox cost Jun 24, 2014 13:50:40 GMT -6
thevictrolashop: I probably messed up my post on an odd horn machine called a Dulcetto with a tiny oak grained metal "Nifty Nirona" styled horn (unmarked) slotted crank, with an "it fits" Columbia add on reproducer. Nice guilded rear bracket as well. Any info appreciated. Oct 9, 2014 6:44:15 GMT -6
willygram: I've had 3 talking machines for 20+ years but recently got all three working. I made a walnut cygnet horn in my garage for my fireside that just needs a few finishing touches but works and looks great. Pics if anyone would like. Fun chat/reading here! Jan 9, 2015 22:03:58 GMT -6
emiracle: I have acquired Reginaphone model 240 lion head player that I am restoring. It is the dual music box and phonograph. Does anyone know if the the music box sproket and the phonograph spindle are supposed to turn at the same time Mar 30, 2015 18:04:04 GMT -6
chinikhan: Is these phones are still available,I am interested on Model Q. Apr 15, 2015 8:07:56 GMT -6
bigsplash1: I have an old Dixie High Grade Talking Machine. Anyone know the value of these? This one is in great condition and has lots of records, a few of which are metal ones. May 8, 2015 5:52:28 GMT -6
robinette: I just bought the most beautiful thing ever. I have a Columbia Grafonola Model 213. I was wondering the value of it - I have zero interest of ever selling though. IT works perfectly and I want to hopefully find more discs. It currently has one. educate me Jun 13, 2015 4:42:11 GMT -6
robinette: Bigsplash, I'd be interested in perhaps getting some of your records if they can be used on my machine Jun 13, 2015 4:42:51 GMT -6
robinette: Can anyone find any information on Columbia Grafanola model 213.......I have scoured the internet...... NOTHING Aug 25, 2015 20:48:42 GMT -6
delmont61: I acquired a Victrola VV215 and restored if for my daughter as a present. The motor worked fine,but seemed a stiff to wind. Took out the springs, cleaned them, and re-greased with Molly and a little gear oil. Still works fine, but it's still stiff. Dec 26, 2015 11:41:07 GMT -6
rainycitygirl: I looked into a box I moved here almost 9 years ago and found (can't remember where I got it) something that looks similar in style as a handheld hole punch except at the "punch area".I believe it was called a wooden needle trimmer 4 talking machine. Mar 2, 2016 21:58:55 GMT -6 *
rainycitygirl: Didn't see limitations before. Anyway,I would love to see it go to someone who would really want it. I found this site and thought someone here might fit the bill. Mar 2, 2016 22:00:03 GMT -6 *
aaronben: I have a Mandel gramaphone that I am interested to sell. Jan 7, 2017 19:07:36 GMT -6
