Hello from Denmark.
Just joined the forum last week. A fellow member told me about i(His name is Richard from New Zealand), would like to get in touch with him again -lost his informations.
But back to me:
I'm 21 years old and have collected machines in 6 years. -Mostly european machines, but got an Edison Home with an Home horn last year.
There are not many collectors in Denmark -but I know 3 or 4 that collect. (sorry for my bad english -not that good -hope you can understand)

Greetings from Denmark :)

Down below are some of my machines.

Well, your English is way better than my Danish, so you get a pass.

Thanks :)
I'm in some different groups on Facebook, so know alot of collectors there- and some of them are in here, I can see.
But right now- when I have the time, I have a phonograph project.
I'm currently restoring this phonograph. I bought it a few months ago in Ringe on Funnen (A Danish island.) It was rather worn and the restoration process has begun.
It "only" needs: to get its spring restored and get my hands on a new soundbox/reproducer. Which one would match? The box needs to get restored, it's in a bad condition with a lot of worm holes... But it's starting to look like something. The phonograph is most likely Swedish and a very early one, but if anyone has an idea about the brand, I'd like to hear it. I've been looking for something like it for a long time, but haven't been able to find it anywhere. It's incredibly simple the way it has been built.

I know that I principally have "removed" some of its originality, but there was so much rust that it had to be removed. Perhaps I'll coat the top plate with nickel again, but for now, this is how it looks. I'll give it a new life now, it used to stand in the moist basement of a farm, slowly dying...
I'm getting some help from a fellow collector back home, so I think it is in good hands :)
I will post some updates :)
Thank you in advance. :)

Nice job so far. I think the removal of rust might be removing some history, but only bad history. In exchange it gives back future to the machine, which it had lost before, so I would not worry about that. Maybe a Columbia or Pathé reproducer might fit?
