Just put together a Victor VTLA phonograph and the accompanying crank was the wrong size, way too short. It is gold plated, has a ¼" female end, and measures about 4 ¼" tall x 4 ¼" wide. What does this belong to? It worked fine on the motor on the bench...

I did find the correct crank for the VTLA.

Thanks! Cliff

Looks like it was cut, or broken, and welded back together. Shortened?

A closer look at this crank and I think you're right. So it could have started out as anything.

Thanks! Cliff

Looks a lot like a shortened later L-door crank or perhaps an XI crank. Just a guess.

Definitely cut and welded together. You can see it's not quite square at the weld. Also, the early VTLA female crank is 7.5" long at the bend.

It looks like that somebody tried to make a Victor VI crank out of a VV XI, or an L-Door machine. To bad. A good crank ruined
