After a few revisions on the brackets and finding some 5" round steel discs, this little machine is coming together nicely. There's still lots of finish work to do and I think the tonearm post (the "candlestick") could be thicker.

The reproducer will be made of solid brass and the other parts will be brass filled epoxy, with a 1" solid wood base. I'm not yet sure what to make this horn out of, maybe fiberglass? I'm also hoping I can convince an artist I know to decorate the elbow, which should be more ornate. It seems like a lot of work for such a little machine :)
