I just picked up a phonograph today and need help identifying the model. The phonograph appears to be a Brunswick phonograph. Can anyone confirm this and tell me what style of reproducer that was on the machine?

This has all the features and characteristics of a Brunswick table top machine. I think the lid is missing. I have never seen a Brunswick table top without a lid. If this machine was manufactured without a lid, I sure would like to know what model it was.

The tonearm looks like it may be from a Silvertone. However, it falls well short of the center spindle so is unlikely to be original to the machine

I don't know, but the tone arm looks like ⅔ of an Ultona. I think the outer piece is missing.

Also, the motor and mounting plate looks definitely like a Brunswick.

They used Brunswick parts, but to my eye, the cabinet is home made.

Yeah, it looks homemade but I don’t think it looks too bad. It looks and probably sounds way better than the homemade Mandel machine that I have lol!
