What an interesting machine!

I'd agree with others on the finish. I think it looks quite good as it is, untouched.

It's interesting to me that a machine like this designed for commercial use has only a single spring motor? I suppose they only cared that it had enough power to play one side before someone would again wind and drop in anothter coin? Is the spring strong enough to play more than a side without a winding?

Thanks alot for posting.

It was intentionally underpowered and has a hard time to play two complete sides. The crank was locked during play to prevent new winding. For correct operation (automatic end stop of turntable) the records had to have an inner groove ("Auslaufrille").
