Re: Big Phonograph/Record Show Coming Up: Aug. 21-22!

This will be at the Expo priced about $1950. All parts are original with the exception of the black rubber ball feet, gaskets between the motor and cabinet, and new white tubing in the Exhibition. It comes with a choice of horns.

I will happily wear a mask if it means I get to attend a phono expo. I've missed it so much.

Re: Let's talk Nippers at the Buena Park Expo!

The top photo #1 is a large paper mâché Nipper that was missing his right rear foot. Photo #3 is the same Nipper after repairs. The large Nippers were sold to retail stores and used as a type of advertising. Nipper found himself outside subject to threats from weather or being climbed on by unsuperv...

Re: FOR SALE: Edison Schubert - $750 delivered to APS Buena Park

That is one nice machine! If only I was closer
Be careful what you write. I could get this fine machine all the way to the MidWest APS Expo next June! (At the cost of a couple of tanks of diesel! :D )

Re: My New Columbia 2/4 Minute BG Cylinder Graphophone

I've always liked the Columbia BG & BGT machines. Like the Columbia BY on the disc side, the BG's cabinetry is understated elegance. The two and four minute gearing is a plus. Congratulations!

Re: 2\4 fireside b worth

It's tough to give a value estimate without photos. We'd be making assumptions such as: If there is no Cygnet bracket, is it drilled for one? How long ago was it restored? I ask because reproduction decals made a few years ago, and still being sold, are a negative, in my opinion, and reduce value. W...

Let's talk Nippers at the Buena Park Expo!

I am excited about attending the Buena Park APS Expo in a few weeks. One of the things I'm most anticipating is an informal talk on Nippers. I will be leading the discussion on Nipper history and restoration following the end of sale on Saturday, August 21st. I would encourage anyone to bring a Nipp...

Re: Looking for Phonograph Parts at the APS Expo

I am happy to bring parts north for Cliff. My only request is that they are in a container that is stackable in my cargo trailer. If needed, let me know so I could bring extra packing tubs to help make good use of trailer space. So bring parts for Cliff! :)

Re: New guy in need of advice - Fairly deep scratch on my VVX

I agree with both prior posts. I would visit the antique shops in your area that have really nice pieces of furniture and inquire if there is a professional that does finish repairs. I bet there's a skilled craftsman close to you that could make that flaw nearly disappear.
