Many years ago I purchased an off-brand portable that had an adjustable vertical/lateral arm pretty much of the same type as yours, except that it was all steel with no pot metal soundbox. I had in mind some terrific "project" with the V/L tonearm, which of course never really saw the light as all terrific projects...

I believe you should be able to replace the soundbox with another generic unit, however in case nothing would fit drop me a line and I'll retrieve the mentioned tonearm/soundbox assembly and we'll see if it fits. It's still at my parent's, but I know exactly where it is located and would be able to retrieve it in a minute.

Marco: Thank you so much for your kind offer:) I will remember it and return to you if needed. I have started restoration of 3 different gramophones at a time, one HMV 101 portable (with missing parts, so I am now tracing down another 101 for parts), and also working on two different horn gramophones, so I really have thrown myself into the pit now..and hope I will be able to swim.;)
