Columbia 2/4 minute machines

Just wondering how many of us have Columbia 2/4 minute cylinder machines. I was lucky I think to find this one I show. It obviously has been restored and is in very good shape. The sound is fantastic. I love it and the music it makes. So what other 2/4 minute Columbia cylinder machines do you have? Can you show photos?

I have a BO like yours except the horn is nickel. I bought it at a farm auction in 1963 along with a Herzog round-front cabinet full of records. Even then I realized the 2/4 minute feature was special. The 6" mandrel was icing on the cake.

Here is my 4 minute Columbia BKT. It may be a BKT Sears Oxford as the cabinet is not the usual BKT style.

From YouTube 9 years ago. Hand held shaky cam:
