This old Edison Standard was found in my neighbor’s garage after spending its early years in Turlock California.  After some cleaning, repair and new parts it is able to play the Liberty Bell March written by John Phillips Sousa written in 1893.  The March gained new popularity in the late 1960’s as the theme song for Monty Python.

A nicely narrated video.  Similar videos welcomed in our Demos & Tutorials category and possible topics include, making minor adjustments (tensioner, governor springs, etc.) oiling, 2/4 gear alignment, etc.  These would be excellent additions to the Belt Replacement and similar postings in that section.

Rod:  I am not too familiar with the mechanics of this forum.  How do I add it to your Demos and Tutorial category?

Sorry.  I did not intend to be critical of the placement of your video, although it probably belongs under “Transfers & Videos”.  I have the capability to move it and will.

 

The point I intended to emphasize is that the quality of your video, along with the narration, would have ideal applicability to some instructional videos, should you or others care to provide same.

 

Best,

Great job! That's a well-presented and accurately narrated overview of a perfect 'sympathetic' restoration.
