Rebuilding Pathe’ Model VII crank phongraph, circa 1915. Can you spell “money pit”. This was left setting under someone’s carpot for 15 years. Yuck, needless to say there was vey little left to work with. I had to replace the 3 sides and the door. Had the motor rebuilt as well. Still missing one small piece which I’m in the process of having someone cut for me. The missing piece is the grill or cover for the speaker above the door. I went into the project knowing I’d spend more than it will ever be worth but then, that’s why we call this a hobby. It was a fun project and the music from the old 78s sound great. Since our home is mostly antiques, it fits right in.

Blessings to all,

-- In the end it is more about the memories we make than the pieces we build.
