I have created a line of spindle hole adapters for seven different sized holes:

Standard talking machine
Harmony
United
Aretino
45 RPM
Seeburg 1000/Customusic
Audio Book company

The adapters allow you to play these records on a turntable with a conventional sized spindle.
They are machined out of ¼ inch stainless steel, and laser etched with the name of the record they are design for.

Adapters are $25 each. (Sorry for the high price, they are expensive to manufacture).
I only have a couple of each size made at the moment. The intention is to manufacture more as needed. About a 2 week turnaround time. PM me if interested.

Thanks! It has irked me for years that there are not adapters out there for most of these weird sizes. I have been working on this project for about half a year. I wanted to make something nice.

I just had a new batch of adapters made for: standard talking machine, Harmony, United, and Aretino. I sold a bunch at the APS meet last weekend but still have some left. PM me if interested.

The adapters came in the mail today. They sure look nice and are very well made! While I'm sure they'd look great on any modern turntable, they certainly don't look out of place on my vintage phonographs. It's nice to finally be able to find adapters as nice as these ones. Thanks Mike!

The etched record label names add a pleasant touch, yet some may also like the fact that the flip sides have been left blank and display just as nicely as the etched sides.
