This is newly listed on Facebook. Is it worth looking at?

I'd pass. The arm is busted, the Graduola is missing (the most interesting feature), the cabinet is dead plain, and the bottom board is missing. If the motor works this is a good parts machine

I asked her to send out some better pictures of the arm (that is the part I've been trying to get to restore my EE model). I noticed that the graduola is missing, and wanted pics of the reproducer. Still haven't gotten a response. I agree with you about a parts machine. Thanks for the advice

Those arms are the weak part of Aeolian machines- overly complex, and the design puts a lot of stress on pot metal.

Happy New Year Art, Do you go to the Wayne Show? I have about 4 or 5 Aeolian uprights----a couple of different types, with one being one of the smallest uprights I think they made. If you are interested $200 for them all, complete and almost complete---have not seen them in years, so I can't say for sure. I will get them together in the spring---if you are interested. ---Herb
