I am picking it up for a collector in the greater San Fransisco area. He is looking forward to its restoration. I am just bringing it back to Albany. Peter is going to pick it up. Jerry Blais

Good! It will make a very nice machine once done Thanks Jerry! I really wanted it, but $700 in shipping made it prohibited.

I’m just glad that Jerry has finally acknowledged San Francisco as “greater” - and can’t wait to go pick up my future liquor cabinet from him.

Ok please expound on that! I have several of the typical drivers, which have silver metal housings in a rectangular shape with one rounded end, a Bakelite base, and a diaphragm very similar to that of an orthophonic reproducer. See attached photo. What unit are you talking about, and can you provide photos?

Yes, please show it to us. I have only found what PeterF has described.
