How come you never responded to me? I live in Central Ohio; but could get up to Ann Arbor, Jackson or even all the way to Grand Rapids, MI to purchase this unit if I had to. Only drawback to that is that I would have to transport it on it's back in my SUV. I also have a very good shipper who could pick up and bring to me COD. I have been begging Skihawx to sell me his and am still waiting. While I wait I thought that I would contact you again. Only question right now is has the speaker been re-coned? I am a fan of re-coning early paper speakers; as they really have made other Edison C-4's that I have owned in the past give a bass and fidelity that I have never gotten from any other radio/phonograph. Does someone else wish to come forward who has one that has not been listed? I am giving up my plans to go to Union in a few weeks in the hope that I can secure one of the two C-4 Radio/Phonographs I found on the site and also a Decent, complete EDISONIC Phonograph. That will take care of my savings! Thanks! Mark Roberts

Sorry, edited my post; as I don't want to sound rude. Besides, this was supposed to be a PM and somehow I screwed up and posted it. Do you have a restored C-4 Radio Phonograph for sale? Best! Mark

Mark,

Can't help you with the C-4, but I have a couple of C-2's here if you have an interest in that model.

I have to agree with you on the sound quality of the C-4 after the speaker is re-coned. The only ones that I considered sounding good were the ones I spent the extra time having the cones replaced along with the electronic restoration.

Thank you, Chuck!

I think that you have contacted me a couple of times and a few of the forum members told me that you are the "Wizard" of Edison C-2 and C-4 Radio Phonograph restoration.

I appreciate your offer of the C-2's very much; but I already have a MINT original C-2 Radio/Phonograph with the original record books and back that is nearly always missing. Also have all of the original paperwork, sale brochures, etc... in addition to a nice collection of Edison Needle Types and Edison Electric Diamond Discs. Also have an extra radio chassis, and motorboard complete with an extra turntable, needle tin and, of course a second lateral/vertical Edison Horseshoe Pickup.

My desire was to get a restored C-4 Radio/Phonograph and then get my C-2 to you for proper restoration and a speaker re-cone. Aside from the ones I mentioned--there is only one other C-4 locally that I could pick up for a decent price. Unfortunately it has been badly re-finished with what looks like MinWax Polyshades and had veneer issues if you look way back on Skihawx post you will see the type of cabinet and restoration I am looking for: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=12525&hilit=Edison+Radio

I am also listing my EBAY history to show that I am an honest guy who pays his bills right away. Member since 9/14/1998 with only 100% Positive Feedback:

I have NEVER seen one with a back; nor does it look like there is any hardware to mount a back. I even saw an original C-4 Radio-Phonograph that Thomas Edison gave Henry Ford for Greenfield Village so that they could play the Ford Old Time Dance Music on it for dances they held in the large attic of once of the houses in Greenfield village. Coming direct from Edison it was beautiful but also had no back. My personal opinion for what it's worth is that Edison did not put a back on the C-4 due to the extreme heat given off from the tubes of the radio and power supply. Would love to be proven wrong if anyone ever saw a back or has a photo of one that they would like to post to this thread. Best! Mark Roberts, Navarre, Ohio 44662-8102 Stark County.
