Wind up Gramophone continental

AUD 51.00 4 Bids Sold

Seller: robo9520 (93) 96.2%, Location: Caringbah, NSW, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 332481498286 Here is an antique wind up gramophone. As you can see in the photosit could be 1930's or so. The gramophone itself is a lot cleaner andshinier than the photos depict, it is a nice clean unit. The carry casehas usual wear and tear from usage over the years as seen in photos.I bought it off a guy from ebay. It worked great when I first got it,everything works, the wind up works good, the turn table worksgreat, when you play the record with the tonearm it works for a little while but it slows right down. When you lift the tonearmback up the turn table keeps going fine. I rang up aservice guy who fixes them down at Ingleburn in Sydneyand he said that it could be the belts in turn table that is slowing it down.Other than that everything works as expected on it fine. I personallythought it was the way I was balancing the tonearm on the record.I also had some needles with it somewhere.But in saying that, I dont want it, I dont have room for it,I had high expectations on buying this and putting it in reallynice gramophone cabinet and reselling it. Anyone who buysthis or an enthusiast who knows about the mechanics and the simplicityof the wind up gramophone would be able to get this gramophoneup and going to its glorious days of past perfectly. I dont have the timeor effort, so hence I am selling it at a loss, whoever buys it is another persons gain with the full understanding of what the problem is. I will throwin a couple of 78 records to go with it. I am sad about doing thisbut I want it gone. I know the price of these gramophones and whoever buys it as I said before and knows a bit about them and knowshow to rectify it, I reckon would be grabbing a bargain. My lossanother persons gain.Cheers
