Would Puck machine parts work to finish this ?

Since it is a Puck machine, you could probably complete it with other Puck parts... from the pic, it looks like it only needs a horn and reproducer.

Charley has an extraordinary collection accumulated over decades. Those of us who have been to his house are sometimes awestruck at what he has on display and how casually it it displayed. For example, someone had to point out to me that the machine under a pile of records and papers was an extremely rare Amberola IV. As you can see from that photo, Charley doesn't just have one tinfoil machine, he has several.

It was kind of an "open secret" that Charley had collectors over to his house after the Saturday parking lot show at Wayne. I don't know if he'll be able to start that up again once we are (hopefully) able to have a Wayne show in October.
