I have a complete Edison Amberola-30 motor and upper deck--including crank--for trade. This unit works although very much in need of a good cleaning. You crank it and the mandrel turns. I would like to trade it for a working Columbia motor, the sort that goes into the Standard Model A although also used on other models. I will post pictures of the Amberola motor a bit later, but if you are interested, please PM any time.

John

Now with pictures of the Amberola-30 for trade.The paint may look bad, but that's just a lot of grease. This is a good running machine. Some brassining on the receiving end of the mandrel.

This is a partial Columbia motor. I'm looking to trade the Amberola-30 for preferably a complete and working Columbia motor of this type, but would also be interested in partial motors as well. If you have any parts to this motor, let me know.

Last call should anyone wish to make a trade. I have a few people interested in buying the Amberola-30 motor. If no interest by Saturday, I will offer it to the first person who contacted me. Thanks for reading. John

Here are pics of the motor I have. It is from a United Talking Machine Co. Symphony internal horn phonograph. The mainspring is either broken or detached and appears to have a bad gear (see photos). If you are interested PM or email me. Thanks.
