Hi
Just got a new toy, I have an X2 and thought this would be a nice addition.

Regards Marcel

What a beautiful example! When I was 11 years old, my parents stopped to buy bread at a farm outside of Mansfield, Ohio. I told the farmer I collected old phonographs and he told me to go in his barn, climb up in the loft where I saw things stored and I would find one in a crate. Sure enough, it was a Standard AA like yours, complete, though not as nice! I replaced the spring with a clock spring and bought replacement governor weights and springs from Lloyd Davis in Prarie Village, Kansas (is he still alive?). I was so proud of that machine! That was 41 years ago . . . aargh!
