The speed control is a Paillard, so when you are able to remove the motor board you should find a Paillard motor.



Well, Here is the motor.

Is this a Paillard I wonder ?


The spring barrels look like those I found in a Thorens motor in a "Savoy" off brand table top I fixed up for a friend. It also looks like you have a fiber gear in good shape! If you look at my posts lately you'll see me yammering on about my Paillard fiber gear :) ... lucky! Don't oil it. I've learned from endless searching that destroys them.
Here is a guess about the mystery object ... could it be to actually help lift the motor board?

Thanks for the advice.

That is a very interesting guess / idea re: the metal object - I think you are right ! Brilliant !

Hi

Wonder no more.....Thorens as well just for reference.

The soundbox was king of a generic copy of the Exhibition & is found blank as well as with lots of different names such as Saturn, Exploitation....and even one in expectation of Halleys Comet that made a pass in 1910



Thank you ! Very interesting indeed !

Could you make a guess as to the age of the gramophone please I wonder ?

I know this thread is months old, but I was searching the boards for something, stumbled upon it, and recognized the mystery part. It's a tension plate thingamabob from a sewing machine. I don't know much about sewing machines but the one I have (pictured) is a hand cranked ¾ size Singer machine made in Scotland, 1910.

Not too much help towards the gramophone, but at least you can be assured that it doesn't belong with the machine.

Wow ! That is amazing and conclusive ! Thank you very much Jwb88 - I must say that I would like an old sewing machine and must start looking.
