I have a 202 with a polished wood motor board & red plush turntable, No. 9 soundbox. It still has a serial number inside it on a paper tag.

(My only Orthophonic-style machine--that thing sounds great!)

Thank you Gramophile for adding another good reference to the Columbia list.

VanEpsFan, you also have a 202 with a polished motor board, similar to the one I posted photos in this thread a few weeks ago?
If so, we are at least two who have the 202 with this motor board.

Update: I have another photo of a Columbia 202 to my previous post in this thread. I thought it could be a good thing to show the 3 different Columbia 202 versions ( are there more versions?) on close up photos. I know quite a few forum members already have this third version with rexin clothed motor board, and winding key at the side of the gramophone. I bought this black 102 yesterday, and will collect it tomorrow. Unfortunately it does not have the record album attached, but the owner is still looking it, so there is still a chance it may appear. I bought the machine to complete the 102 versions in my collection, and also because the copy is in very good shape.

Another one has just appeared on UK eBay. The seller thinks it is Victorian :lol: :lol: :lol:. Both the price and the postage are ridiculous.

I could not find any photos of the Columbia model 113 in this thread, even the model is covered in this thread from august 2019, where Roger (epigramophone) was fortunate and happy to find this gramophone: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=41584&hilit=columbia+113
(I know Barry ( phono48), also have this machine, he tells about his machine in the same thread linked to above here)

Since the story of this machine is covered in the thead link given, I will not repeat this writing, but just add my photos to this Columbia index list to make this thread more complete. I was myself very fortunate to find this machine some days ago, at the same price that Roger paid last autumn. My machine has some scars on the polished wooden interior panel as we can see on the photos, most probably from some careless lowering of the lid with the soundbox in upright position. I will carefully try to colour match the damaged areas that with spirit wood stain, touched in with varnish or French polish ( Thank you for the advice, Roger!) Apart from these scars, the machine looks great, and the machine runs when it is winded. This is not a machine I would mess much with, so all (necessary) steps in refurbishing it will be made in small steps.

Happily and most importantly, we can add another surviving copy of Columbia 113 to the list :D

PS. Did I mention the machine is really HEAVY :o
