I don't think that playing DDs is what this stylus was intended to
do. To be effective for playing vertical cut discs with a lateral
pickup, the stylus assembly has to have the tip considerably offset to
the side relative to the line of the shank. This allows the assembly to
be a lever

You might also want to post this request to the Electrola group on
Yahoo that specializes in the early electronic phonos of all makes. We
pretty much discuss everything up thru the 1950s and later.

Ron has a good point. Most of the early electric motors that were
used in the first electrified phonographs were of the "universal" type.
I seem to remember seeing this type in the early Columbia electrics.
Meaning they had windings of wire in both the armature and in the stator
