jboger, I was following this thread, and your tall case Standard A, looks exactly like my Royal that I started another thread about it. The only difference is you have the Standard A decal, and mine has the metal anodized plate in the front. Does your Standard have the late pillar and plate motor, like my Royal? If my Royal is originally set up to play Standard records, I wonder if the Royal was a subsidiary of the Standard. It sure would be interesting to know.

Harvey: Yes, my late Standard has the pillar and plate motor. I will get around to photographing each motor and post the pics. Also I will give case dimensions.

Added some time later: Your Royal looks just like my late model Standard. I see that the nickel plating is peeling same as I mine. As I noted somewhere else, I don't think Columbia prepped the surface of the the aluminum in order for the plating to take.

I believe your Royal was set up to play Standard records with the large spindle hole. The spindles on Columbia machines that are used to play regular records have a small part of the spindle stick up above the tapered brass cone used to support the platter. The fact that your machine does not have that means it took a platter that had the record spindle cast into the platter.

Now have pictures of the late model Standard Model A motor. Here we have a pillar and plate construction that makes up a box in which the parts are fitted. It is very easy to disassemble, clean, and put back together. The motor of course is upside down with the spindle pointing downward.
