For what it's worth, there's a legless 15-8 that showed up on eBay last night. Starting bid was $0.99 and located in Greensboro, NC. Parts?

Noted!

I'll have to look into that; hopefully they reply to my question about spare parts.

Anyway we shall see what happens. I bet with a new reproducer it would play just fine, or if I drop off the old one with Mr Markus (along with the Combination K for the Fireside, that I have given up trying to work on because I think someone messed with it before I did.)

Wonder how many 15-8's were actually made? I've never seen one that opened like this; it reminds me more of an electric phonograph.

Charles,

The more I look at that eBay auction, the more suspicious I am of it. Brand new seller, no feedback, $8 shipping shown for a large phonograph. Be careful, I'd hate to have given you a bum steer :cow: !

They're coming out of the sheds, it seems. Here's another one, legless as well and not as cheap but the seller has a better feedback score. https://www.ebay.com/i/303774682428?_tr ... noapp=true

@Jerry B.-- Yes, we'll have to see on that one! I don't know what is going on there but they could be legitimate. Or not.

@Kirkwood-- That one appears to have been "modernized" to look more 1950s-1960s. A very strange conversion.

I am going to see what happens; still working on an Edison Home and a ton of other responsibilities and projects but when chance permits I am going to tear into the Panatrope. Hopefully that is fairly soon.
