Re: Wanted: Fibre gear for Columbia BI

A number of years ago, I was able to purchase a new fiber gear from APSCO (antiquephono dot com). Not sure whether they still carry them today but you may want to give them a try.

Lovely machine, Congratulations! It looks very nice in its original state; they always look very appealing in untouched condition.

WTB: Early style Victor governor weights

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for early style Victor governor weights. They are recessed in the back where the spring blade goes.
They measure 17.5mm, or 11/16", in diameter.

I only need one weight. I would take just 1, but would prefer a full set of 3.

Thank you and best regards,

Oliver

Re: Viva-Tonal # 112 question

The carrying handle and the mainspring, I'm sure, will cost more than a complete and working machine

Re: Viva-Tonal # 112 question

These two recent eBay sales are probably representative of current UK values : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Columbia-Model-112-Portable-Picnic-Gramophone-/274642330553?hash=item3ff1f563b9%3Ag%3A-V8AAOSwPKpf-gkF&nma=true&si=fac0MKZAOOLXpCIw0gHdHElU7ho%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=...

Viva-Tonal # 112 question

Hi All,

On the British and European market, what would be a fair price to pay for a portable Viva-Tonal #112 needing a mainspring and a carrying handle :?:
(otherwise in good condition)

Thanks a lot.

Re: The Oraphone

Interesting, unusual machine. The oak cabinet looks very nice. I wonder if the Columbia-like needle cup is original to it..
