KEEN-O-PHONE BASKET CASE

Post by tictalk »

My wife and I were just talking Saturday, how we needed to sell some upright phonographs , and stop buying big machines, because we were running out of room, the very next day she gets a call from someone that has a basket case Keen-O-Phone , they bought it years ago all dismantled and in boxes and are now selling it as they found it. Well of course we hopped in the truck and presto I have yet another project .

I've seen a couple of this model in mahogany but not in oak ,the machine had already been stripped but fortunately they didn't stain it, looks like it has some nice size quarter sawn flakes just waiting to be brought to life, I just hope all the parts are there, it does have the correct motor with the traversing turntable which would be impossible to find.

Great Find Larry! Never saw one in oak either. Could be unique!
