Looking for a tonearm for a VV-VI.

The version without the lid.

Thanks,
Jarret

Which VV VI? That machine had a long production life and had many variations. Also, the VV VI never had a lid.

Yes, you are correct.

It the more common model. 10-inch turntable. I can post a pic and serial number tomorrow.

Thanks,
Jarret

Actually the Victrola VI with 10" turntable is somewhat unusual in such a frequently seen model. It is worth the effort to complete. I wish someone could provide a photo with measurements for the tone arm. Jerry B.

I have a VV-VI with a 10" turntable, SN 12772, so a bit earlier than the one posted. Here are some pics of the tonearm with a tape measure. Let me know if you need any additional dimensions.

Thanks for the photos Mike. I'll check my parts bin when I get home in a few days. That type on tone arm slips down over a rod that is fixed to the back bracket. It looks like the rod is missing in Jarret's machine. Jerry Blais

Jerry, yes, the rod and round piece that fits into the bracket are missing. Here are pictures of those pieces.

Yes, I believe I have part of what you need. I have the tone arm minus the U-tube and I am missing the vertical rod. I'f you'll PM you cell number I will send photos of what I have available. Jerry Blais
