The link given didn't work for me. Here's the one I used to get to the listing: https://harrisonburg.craigslist.org/atq/d/chester-gap-modernola-phonogragh/6900072209.html

Neat machine!
A talking machine might be the closest you'll get to a time machine.

This was for sale near me a while ago for 500. I offered them 300, then 400 for it at the time as I knew the lamp would be basically impossible to find, and they wouldn't budge. Not that it matter that much, but this is a reseller.

I hear you on trying to find missing parts - whatever I look for I'm sure there are none left on earth. Cheers - Bill K

You can always find parts. You have to find the right person.

"Always" is definitely an overstatement. Whith obscure phonographs, finding parts is sometimes basically impossible, and reproducing parts may be the only option. I know some people here have been looking for "that part" for 25+ years.
