Re: Edison Standard Model B feed screw

The lead screw is 50 TPI 3/16 inch as far as I can see the 50 TPI lead screws being coarser are not buttress threads like the 100 TPI on the Triumph and Home designs but there is no reason for them to follow any stock thread standard form of the time either. The M8 fine 0.5 pitch will be a loose fit...

Re: Questions Regarding Horn Design and Dimensions

These foams are normally coated with an epoxy or other gel coat and this can be sanded and polished for use as the mould and treated with a release wax before making the fiberglass layup that will become the horn. There are also special machining grade boards that can be used with a polish and a sea...

Re: Edison Special Records

I have the following without trying to find them, just with mixed lots I have bought in the UK over many years.
A,B,E,H,J,K.

Re: Edison Special Records

I was pleased to see a link to the earlier topic but must say entering a search for it didn't work for me.

Re: Edison Special Records

I think others will fill in the gaps These were a set of cylinders sold as part of an upgrade kit to convert your Edison phonograph to play with a diamond b reproducer. I think there are 12 up to letter L at least. I have special K ( which is a brand of breakfast cereal as well ) The Peerless Minstr...

I also see in the lids a record you should treasure of Hector Grant , which is of course Peter Dawson doing his best Harry Lauder impersonation. that example you played shows how...

Re: What should the end of this horn look like?

Similar bass horn end, the straight tube part seems to be rolled brass sheet not tube originally. I think this the end has been modified/damaged in the past so it may need more than just adding a tube although there is solder on the inner edged which suggests there is not much missing but it has bee...

Re: Columbia Dictaphone Belt

Book binding thin leather is the thing to use for and authentic replacement but I have used thin o rings very successfully in an Ediphone the lower pulley shape on the Dictaphone may not allow for that and there may be a belt tensioner so a flat leather belt skived and glued is the best thing.
