I have been working on on early Edison Gem Branded Case Model A phonograph. The belt tensioner is loose and just flops around. I assume that these had a spring to keep the roller pressed against the outside of the belt. The base of the tensioner, on the inside, has a slot in it, which I assume fit some sort of spring. I don't have another Gem to compare this to. If there is a missing spring, does anyone know where it is supposed to go and what it looks like? I would need this part if anyone has one.

Thanks - Mike
