I need the short straight tube that runs from the elbow outward, and to which the reproducer mounts, for many styles of Pathé disc machines. It typically has a short threaded stud which slips into a short slot on the elbow, with a knurled nut to secure it. The other end sometimes has a rubber isolator segment.

I don't need the elbow or reproducer but if you need to sell the whole shebang, I might take them to get what I need.

Hoping one of you finds something that's been languishing in the parts bin, awaiting this very moment.

Thanks.

Could you post a pic of the machine you're trying to complete?

If you have the dimensions of the piece maybe I can make a replica.

That’s a kind offer, thanks. I think it won’t be difficult to find an original though. I’ll keep you in mind - thanks again.

I looked through the parts I have and found something which might fit.
Length is around 145mm with the usual Pathé saphir diameter (around 25mm). Missing the screw and nut.
Fyi, Pathé produced a lot of different Reflex (or Coq) machines and the tonearm length was not always the same
Just let me know.

Wow, very nice - thank you for checking. I have a friend who is lucky enough to have the exact same model in his collection, and so since my own is not coming to me for quite some time I will ask him to measure his arm for comparison to yours.

Following up...I had my pal with the identical model measure his, and it's 160mm x 25mm. I also checked the corresponding piece on one of my US Pathé machines, and it is considerably shorter - plus with a diameter about 75% smaller.

The machine won't actually be in my hands for quite some time, so I'm not in a rush and will keep looking a while longer.

Thanks for the help.
