Does anyone have the horn to reproducer connector tube for a U-S Rex or Lakeside cylinder phonograph?
I've included a photo of a Rex model for reference.

Thanks!

I just wanted to share the ingenuity of Ken Danckaert in bringing my Rex cylinder phonograph back to life. He was able to come up with a connector tube set up by taking some components from a different tone arm and it looks pretty good too. I'm looking forward to picking it up this weekend to clean it up.

Take a look at the before and after photos.

Thanks again Ken!!

Martin,

I picked it up thinking the connector tubes would not be too difficult to find. However, to my surprise I found out the connector tubes are practically impossible to find and making the parts would be too expensive. This rare machine is definitely a keeper.
