I read there are about 15 Paillard #205's in the world, well I just inherited one from my granddad! So perhaps that makes number 16. I was trying to find out what it was and ended up in this forum :) .
We lighted 'her' up yesterday and after some lubrication of the inner parts sure enough music started to pour out of her. Great machine! I really didn't know they were that rare. The mechanics of the machine are in good condition, only the 'exhaust chimney' on the side is not properly fitted anymore.


If you would, please post some images, (or better, a video). You might want to keep a proper fire extinguisher handy when you run it, (seriously). Welcome to the group.

Sometimes it happens, but they're rotated the correct way up when clicked.

Very interesting machine, congrats! 8-)
