Re: Victor VV8-35 Orthophonic arm back bracket question

I actually picked up an 8-35 myself a month back or so. From what I recall, there’s a rubber gasket sealing the bottom of the back bracket to the metal horn. I remember doing a combination of twisting and pulling to end up separating the two. Hope this helps, and that’s a beautiful 8-35! Best, -Tom...

Amberola 75 Drawers

Today I picked up an Amberola 75, it’s a little rough and is missing the three record storage drawers. The machine ended up costing me $40, so I’m not too upset about it. Looking at pictures online they seem like they’d be pretty easy to replicate. Is this something that could be easily done? If so,...

Re: Machine Oil and Vinegar To Clean Shellac 78s

I recall that I posted a topic about vinegar cleaning right here on this very forum. I decided I agreed with the opinion that the acidic content of vinegar is probably not great for shellac. https://forum.talkingmachine.info/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=42103&hilit=vinegar That’s another point I’ve ...

Re: Machine Oil and Vinegar To Clean Shellac 78s

No, no, no, no good. No f-ucking good. You can't use oil and vinegar on record. No way. That’s certainly what I thought. I’ve got a lot of time on my hands (Can you tell? :P ) so I thought I’d experiment more. So much black gunk was coming off the records on the first play I was worried it was part...

Re: Machine Oil and Vinegar To Clean Shellac 78s

I know I said I wouldn’t try it on a Columbia record, but I had one sitting in front of me that I cleaned earlier this week just using the water and dish soap method. I used the oil/ vinegar mixture and rubbed in using a piece of scrap felt. Let that sit for 30 minutes then wiped the record with a w...

Re: Machine Oil and Vinegar To Clean Shellac 78s

For reference this was the method that came from AudioKarma and the one that I followed. Although I used Tri-Flow as I’m not a fan of 3-in-1 oils. The following cleaning procedure comes from The Gramophone Handbook by Percy Wilson (1957). • Make a mixture of 2 parts white vinegar and 1 part light ma...

Machine Oil and Vinegar To Clean Shellac 78s

Recently I heard that you can use a mixture of machine oil and vinegar to clean 78s, and that it was actually the recommendation back in the day. After some research it seems that it is fact a thing, and was even discussed on AudioKarma: https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/cleaning-78s-w...
