It's time for my annual post to ask the group if they have, or have knowledge of, a 12" (actually about 12 ½" ID) nickle-plated trim ring found on the larger outside horn Columbia machines. I have an otherwise perfect and original BD that is missing the ring. Yes, it originally had a ring - the holes are there.

For those of you in the same boat, I have tried to get Ron Sitko and some others in the hobby who have the skill & know-how to make reproduction rings, but to no avail. Start-up costs are too high and the perceived demand is low. I also investigated using clock bezels, but couldn't find any that come close. And no, the 12" rings from the Grafonola machines will not work - I tried.

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks for your help.

Yup, that makes two of us, Greg (and we've talked about this before). My BD is missing the ring as well! A shame, too, because it's an otherwise super example.

I need one also for my BY. Could use the back mount, tone arm and elbow too. Thanks! Jon
