Does anyone know of someone who makes easily reusable adapters for oversized spindle-hole records like Standard, United, Harmony, etc.? I don't own any of those machines, but I do own a lot of those records, and would be delighted to be able to play them on my Victors and Columbias.

Thanks!

hi, it's been a while since I visited the forum... I received inquiries for a new run, last time I made 3 sets but couldn't make more at the time.
now I have free access to the required tooling so feel free to ask for a set so I have an idea of the quantity I need to produce.

This is from Aug 18, 2018...

Thanks, James. I tried the two people on that thread; one says he doesn't have any more, and the other is non-responsive.

If anyone else out there has any leads on adapter sets for odd-sized spindle-hole records, I would be grateful for them. I would really like to get a set.

Thanks!

I made a bunch a while ago. They're made on a sheet and will have rough edges, so a little sanding or filing will be needed. If you PM me your address, I'll send you a set (on me, assuming shipping is in the USA).
