Re: HMV 101, front wind, puzzling me...

I today received the front wind HMV 101. In total, it is in very good condition, hardly any marks on the machine. It also has the earliest version of the no.4 soundbox attached, a great plus of course. Can someone confirm that this is the 425 motor? I was able to find a photo of 425/426 motor on pag...

Re: Unidentified Toy Gramophone

What a tiny and cute little gramophone:) It is amazing to see how many unknown gramophones that still turn turn up, so many years after they originally were manufactured. I hope it will be possible to know more about its origin etc.

Re: Portable HMV 88

After closer scrutiny of the uploaded photos, I can see there are no screw hole on the right hand side of the lid on the outside, so the needle box (cover) arrangement on this machine is different than on the HMV 88.

Re: Portable HMV 88

Can I ask, is there a screw hole at the top right under the lid? If so, the machine maybe originally had the typical needle box cover found on the HMV 88. If so, the new needle box cover maybe was added later on if the original cover in the lid was broken off. Somehow the area around the black needl...

Re: Horn gramophones to identify and discuss

Plaque shows name of gramophone shop in a nearby city, and here we can see the shop and the interior of the shop. That's why I bought the machine really, because of this plaque... :clover: I tried to spot my machine on the desk, but that would have been too much to expect.... :shock: I am also tryin...

Re: Horn gramophones to identify and discuss

As always, when possible, I like to give updates on end results, and mysteries solved when they appear that way. I showed the Lindstrom motor to an old gramophone friend, who is really knowledgeable too, and he looked for a second at the non return spring and told me that actually two broken springs...

Re: Newbi with an Odeon SIb

Myself I would not advice you to buy soundboxes from India, I will send you a pm about how to possibly get hold of a soundbox for your gramophone in Sweden.

Re: Newbi with an Odeon SIb

Welcome to the forum, Patrik. I have myself quite a few Odeon machines, portables and also a floor model, and some horn models. Odeon, under the Lindstrom umbrella, made a LOT of different gramophones, and many of them are not yet listed here on the forum, since unknown models ( to forum members) st...

Re: Mystery - Numbers stamped on HMV 101 Rexine

I thought these numbers were part numbers, but I am sure someone can correct me if this is wrong. Regarding the 101 version, the 101C had a Pakawa handle according to the HMG book, and also a 410 motor. Maybe more photos of the machine could be of help? Again, citing the HMG book, the 101C has a eye...
