Many thanks Carlos. If anyone would like a free original HMV 511 horn I can supply ! I think I could also find the tonearm and possibly even a soundbox---all in gilt/gold plate. The actual soundbox which came with this ruined case was an HMV 5B which I have used elsewhere.

I wondered what happened to that HV-511. I could really use a tung-tone needle tin holder for an HMV I picked up over here in the us. The two needle pots are very damaged but there. I would be interesting in buying those too.

Some might like to see the squatty 511 now standing full height once more, new mahogany legs carved and grafted onto the stumps. the motor is presently out awaiting repair/rebuilding, I think the only thing to find now is a soundbox!
