2017-01-08 Thread Immortal Performances via Phono-L
Dear Mr. Medved:

 

Your reputation for restoring reproducers has been widely praised.

 

Each year on February 11th I host an Edison Birthday Celebration here in 
Austin, Texas for local & visiting antique phonograph collectors.   A couple 
years ago, some superb professional jazz musicians attended & then high school 
student Colin Hancock assisted in recording them on wax cylinders using his 
restored Recorder on my 2 minute only Edison Triumph Phonograph.

Colin is now in college & won’t be able to attend this year’s Party to which 
some amateur jazz musicians are invited.   I want to again record wax cylinders 
of the musicians but one of my Recorders fails to cut a groove & the other 
provides too weak a recording to accommodate a dozen musicians even though a 
platform & high stools are provided for certain instruments, etc.

 

Do you restore Edison Recorders to peak performance?   Or, would you have such 
for sale?

 

Also, wanted in a less timely manner, are you able to restore the Reproducer of 
a Columbia “BC” Twentieth Century Graphophone?

 

Many thanks & all good wishes…

 

Very truly yours,

 

Jim Cartwright

Hello Ron,

 

Edison links vary from .0175 to .0192 in diameter.  I use .020 annealed 
stainless steel wire to make links for them all except for the O and M which I 
use .018 annealed steel wire.  The O link is longer than the M link.  

 

Staple wire is too small in my opinion as it is .0175 on one side and .0186 on 
the other as it is not round.  The length is about right for the bent weight N 
but too long for the C or H.

Hello Everyone, 

 

I was wondering if there are any printed or "known" specifications for the 
fabrication dimensions of all of the different Edison reproducer "S" or "C" 
hooks that connect the diaphragm to the stylus?  Like actual center to center 
distance, radius on the ends, wire diameter, etc.  Any info would be helpful as 
I would like to machine a few small fixtures to make them instead of trial and 
error.

The Triumph A 2/4 upgrade mandrel is very rare because most of the time you see 
an A it has the B upgrade mandrel on it which will fit but you have to move the 
upper bed plate all the way to the right so the belt will not hit so the screw 
holding the bedplate down will be all the way to the left and not centered in 
its lug.


All the upgrade mandrels and feedscrews are stamped.  My article below and the 
copies of the Edison letter should answer all your questions, if not please let 
me know.


I have a Triumph A with a B mandrel on it.  No other companies made them to my 
knowledge.  Edison made 2/4 upgrade mandrels and pulleys for the Concert, the 
early Spring Motor, and the ABC triumphs.


Steve




I was able to find a copy of a letter Edison sent to his dealers telling about 
the different mandrel upgrades for the home and triumphs.  If the dealers 
needed a letter, how much more will this information help us?



Here are some things that I have found from the letter and myself.  The lengths 
of the triumph feed screws are as follows:



The A is 4 27/32" and is marked T D A I  and TA on the feedscrew and the 
mandrel.

The B is 5" and is marked T D B I, TBI, or just a large TB on the mandrel and 
the end of the feed screw is also marked.

The C is 5 1/4" and is marked T D C I on the feedscrew and the mandrel. I have 
never seen a C except for a pulley.

The D and E (and F I assume) is marked T D only.

The pulley is marked with an A B C or D.





Homes:



The home is marked H B I, IHB or H A B I for the A & B and H C for C.

The home D and higher is marked H D.

If you put a Triumph B mandrel on a Triumph A you have to move the upper 
bedplate to the right all the way to compensate or the belt hits where it goes 
through the lower bedplate.  My Triumph A has a B mandrel on it.



I believe the pulleys are the same, and think the shifters on the C kits have 
the lip like the D and higher does, but I have only seen one home C and one 
triumph C with the kit so I can't say for certain.  7 or 8 Triumph C's are 
known and the Home C is very uncommon.



Until I saw this letter on eBay (I did not win it but purchased a photocopy 
from the winner) I did not know they made 5 different ones.  If anyone wants a 
copy of the letter e-mail to them please contact me.



Steve



>From Terry Baer:



The model C used a unique mandrel assembly
with "captured" bearing.  Picture an early two minute mandrel shaft.  Remove
the mandrel and turn down the area under the mandrel to about 5/16" leaving
the larger 5/8" feedscrew.  Now slip on a bearing that is 5/8 OD 5/16 ID.
Now slip on a mandrel with smaller 5/16 holes on both ends.  Now slip the
whole assembly in the top works.

Subject: [Phono-L] Edison Triumph A 2/4  minute conversion kit?

I have heard tell here and there that Edison, and possible some  other
companies, produced 2/4 minute conversion kits for the Triumph model A
phonograph, but I have never seen one, and I'm not sure I know anyone who  has. 
 Can
anyone out there confirm the existence of such a beast?   If so, have you
ever seen one for sale, and what did it go for?

The conversion kit for the model b is fairly common, I have one now and had 
another in the past.John Robles
