Happy Holidays everybody! I am getting a jump start on some New Year's projects. I have ended up with a few machines over the past year or so that need attention.

Early Columbia Grafonola Floor Model (1914-ish) Motor Service
Edison Home (model C reproducer) Motor and Reproducer Service
Edison Standard (model C reproducer) Motor and Reproducer Service
Harmony Front Mount Phonograph (similar to Aretino/Busy Bee) Missing Reproducer, Needs Motor Service

I hope I am not opening up a "can of worms" but can anybody recommend or share some brief reviews of persons/companies with a good reputation for motor rebuild/service and reproducer rebuilding/servicing. Note: I am in NC so I would think the East Coast would make more sense for shipping costs. Maybe we could even meet up at a show and do an exchange....

My goal would be to have an arrangement where we tackle one motor or reproducer at a time.... I just don't want to see these things sit around another year gathering dust. I plan to tackle the cabinet refinishing.

Also: always willing to trade/barter for Granby/Leviola off brand memorabilia/phonographs - any condition priced accordingly

I ONLY do Edisons.....and do Reproducers and Motor Work. Most Models. Mostly Cylinder machines. I'll work on a Diamond Disc machine....but only if you really need it.. All types of Cylinder machines are my specialty.

My prices are lower or comparable of other repair people...at least that is what I am told..

I am located in Melbourne, Florida. (Central Florida, Right off I-95 On the Space Coast) 1 hour from Orlando.)
