Hi, I hate to ask this, and I know Chromium Needles are terrible they are for your records since they are too hard, but I have an Orthophonic 10-50 and I use them and Tungstone Needles when playing multiple records on the changer (never my best records). How many decent condition victor scrolls can you play with a chromium before you need to change it? 10, 15, 50?? You can hear when the needles go out but I don’t want to push them too far. I would also like to be able to play at least 24 records (the 10-50 plays 12 at a time) before having to change once since they are so expensive is this “safe”?
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:

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.

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!
