Folks, I need some help. I have a cylinder reproducer that I can not identify. I had to buy two machines at an auction to get the one I wanted, so now I have a second Fireside. The reproducer was wrapped up in an old envelope. I think to sell the machine with the reproducer as I am more a disk kinda guy than a cylinder man--no offense. This means I need to honestly describe what I sell, including what's wrong with it.

So, what is this thing? Is the counterbalance missing? The jewel is gone. An the only identification on it is E8563, stamped with individual punches. It seems to be well made. If fits just right into the Fireside. Is it an aftermarket piece, a more modern reproducer, is anything missing or broken?

I'm not asking about rarity or value. I just want to be able to honestly describe it. My search on the Internet has of yet not turned up what it is. I will look some more. Thanks for any help.

John B

That is a early Edison Ediphone Reproducer. It will play cylinders fairly well but not the he correct reproducer.

Rich: Thank you very much. Armed with the key word "Ediphone" I was quickly able to locate an example on the internet. It seems to be complete less the jewel.
