Victor, 1925, 2 Door Credenza in PA, Facebook Marketplace, $350

Not mine, but could be a nice machine for someone. Some prefer the later, four door model, but I like the earlier two door.

Re: Another Dog Day Afternoon

Thank you for all the nice comments, and gramophone-georg too :) . Here is a picture to show how big these dogs are. For perspective, giant Nipper is seen here with an 11” and a 14” Nipper.

Victrola Model SP-599, s/n 501, Art Shop Special Order Machine

I posted this in the eBay/Craigslist section, (you can see more comments and links there). It is rough and needs a lot of work, but it seems to be a fairly historic machine. It may have led to the scarce VV-370, Art Model, (pictured below). Maybe someone has a rough VV-370 and the two machines could...

Re: Victrola Model SP-599, Serial # 501, Facebook Marketplace, PA

I am not looking for a project, but I wrote to the seller to see what was left. Because of the serial number and model I would think that it is worth saving. I hope so anyway.

Victrola Model SP-599, Serial # 501, Facebook Marketplace, PA

It is a bit of a basket case, but parts from another machine may fit, (or be altered to fit). Even making a lid from another lid is not impossible. SP stands for special order, typically, serial numbers start at 501 and this is 501. These machines were produced in Victor’s “Art Shop”. If someone is ...

Re: Another Dog Day Afternoon

This giant economy sized Nipper came to me with two broken feet and one missing, (along with a good portion of his left ear, pictures above were as received). My goal was to do as little as possible and not to over-restore him by making him perfectly smooth, (they were far from perfect when new). Th...

Re: 1924 Victrola Catalog, Scanned

I have added a scanned pdf of the Victrola 230 Instructions. It is the highest resolution that my scanner is capable of. I think that they will print out quite well into book form. The scans look more aged than the actual manual, which looks almost new. If you want to print out a book. set your prin...
