Thought people might be interested in a series of my video's on youtube, of restoring my HMV 461.

I enjoyed the videos, but with great respect, I can think of nothing more dangerous than greasing the spring before replacing it in the drum, making it slippery and hard to control. A couple of big dollops of grease in the bottom of the drum will be distributed by the tightening of the coils as the motor is wound. Just my opinion!
