That's a very nice machine... not too many survived with the original bedplate striping in that great condition... It will probably be the start of an ongoing obsession...

Hi Jim,
It will be $30 to remove dents, true the bell as needed, and if you desire, $15 to buff out the bell. As that is original paint as Brad indicates, it will look like new when complete. John Duffy 860-966-2827
Horns rolled and straightened

I got the Edison Home back from Brad Abell, and he did an amazing job cleaning it up and getting it working, as usual. I think I may have to have the horn done now, this looks so nice!

Jim

Yes, very nice. It's the definition of "collector quality."

Impressive! What a handsome Edison. Have Ripduff work on that horn. Well worth the $$. He is the horn Whiz! Steve Levi

Looks like it came out of the factory yesterday. That is a real nice keeper. It almost would be tempting to wrap it in plastic, then bubble wrap. and seal it in a air tight bag as you lock it in a safe but how could anyone else and you enjoy such a nice machine unless it is displayed. Tom

I could do that, I've got other machines to play 2 minute cylinders with. I should give it some thought.

Thank you again, Brad Abell, for all the work you did on this machine. I won't be keeping it in bubble wrap, this needs to be played!
