Also. As far as parts go is it as simple as eBay? Or are there specialized dealers? I haven’t done any digging yet.
It all depends on which parts you might need... it could be "simple" or not... you might find something on eBay... I looked for a specific part for 13 years before I found one - you might get lucky.
Look on the "Links" section of the forum or post a "Wanted" ad. There are no specialized Modernola dealers - they went out of business after 1929... or maybe before.
