I made a simple come out of heavy paper/cardstock. It’s basic geometry. Cut a small diameter circle, draw a large diameter circle, cut one side, overlap.

I don’t think anyone makes proper reproductions that look exactly like the originals. Hopefully someone can get you dimensions from an original, or has one to spare.

Guiniphone Oscillator

RE: Guiniphone oscillators
Gramtastic,
I have made many improved oscillators for Polly and Brunswick Parisian portables that are replicas of the originals. The oscillators are the same for all, including the Guiniphone. The only difference is the graphics and logo. I can make one for you if you can provide high quality images of the graphics and logo.

I can attest to the high quality of Curt's reproduction oscillators.

I found some Guinea oscillator graphics, but it will take awhile to re-make an entire oscillator using the panel graphics...

Hi Curt,

Would you be able to give me an idea of cost to make one and post to UK ?

Many Thanks
Andrew
