I am working on a motor that was described as being from a 6' tall cabinet coin operated Pathé disc phonograph, though the owner was a bit uncertain about the model. It is a fairly substantial motor with 2 large springs (1 ⅜" wide, .028" thick, with 4" ID spring barrels). It is stamped WOLFF 'A VERSAILLES. Is this a Pathé? It doesn't seem to have any Pathé markings...???

Thanks! Cliff

"You can't take the phonographs nor the money with you, but the contentment the phonographs bring may well make your life better, and happier lives make the world a better place."

This motor comes from an Automatique Concert, a coin-op that was used in bars. The manufacturers were many, but the design was always very similar. Pathé did not sell it . A great machine to play Pathé records, with a large horn, and the motor is very powerful.
