The time has come to let this machine go to a new home. I always dreamed of owning a class M since I was 13 years old, and while I got to own her for some time, I am at heart a collector of early (Edison and others) light bulbs, dynamos, etc. It is time to make way for some other pieces that fit the core of my collecting focus. The machine plays perfectly on about 3 volts. Plays, records, shaves, all like new. The machine has been restored and the cabinet is a finely crafted replica. I do have the original cabinet, and can post some pics but it is so far gone, it is beyond repair. The mahogany replica is dead on perfect when comparing it to other Class M cabinets a few weeks ago. The reproducer is a rebuilt Automatic. Open to offers! Can provide additional pics as desired. Email cmshapiro@me.com, PM or call via phone at 410-404-2025.

Was this the one sold by Tim Fabrizio(Phonophan), a few months ago? If so, it sure was a nice one.

Yep, this is the same machine. I have enjoyed it for a short time but as a light bulb/dynamo collector as my main focus, its time to let it go to fund some other purchases.

I am very intrigued by the very early switches I see on the bottom shelf to the left. Do you have a website with photos of your 19th century electrical switches, sockets, etc? I am a big fan of those.

Hey Steve, don't want to take the thread off track but in short I did not have a site with my early electric prices. I am working on a long term book project and want to keep the material all fresh for that project (so off the internet). That said I am happy to send you pics of all of it.

I will shoot you a PM.

This truly is a fine machine and unlike many others works absolutely flawless so it's much more than just the decorative appeal.
