WANTED Victor 10-50 Turntable

Post by MarkELynch »

Looking for a good original or one of Wayne’s (Victrola-monkey) replica turntables for the Victor 10-50 Automatic to complete a restoration.

Please reply with photo and price.

Thanks!
Mark

Well, no turntables have shown up yet so it may be time to fabricate some replacements.

I have prepared manufacturing drawings for one made from standard aluminum shapes as Wayne has done. The drawings are ready to go out for quotes. I’m fearful that the quotes will be higher that us collectors may wish to pay though.

I am looking into traditional sand casting and final machining as an alternate. Quotes for production by metal sintering or investment casting are out of the ballpark although the end result would be a near-net shape product that would require little post process machining.

What is the perceived value of a part needed to make your 10-50, 9-55, etc work properly again?

This is the culmination of an 18 months project to produce replacement parts for the first style changer. Full drop-in parts sets should be available by late spring or summer.

Please contact me by email if you need a turntable so I can gauge the demand.

Thanks,
Mark

You know, some places do 3D printing with metal. I think that's cheaper than getting truly cast/machined pieces, though I haven't looked into it as much as I should.
