Spear-Tone Record Player item #1421
This is a Spear-tone Model 39 (?) record player. It plays 16, 331/3, 45 and 78 rpm records and has a built-in 45 adapter. It is a single tube amplifier using a 50L6. I repaired the amp and also replaced the cartridge. Sounds pretty good especially on 45's with the cover closed (better fidelity). The front grille cloth is a little torn, the case needs a little cleaning, and you have to jiggle the speed control to set it but other then that it is in good condition. Spear-tone was acquired by the Lionel Train Company in the late 50's and they kept making these recrod players but added their logo to the Spear-Tone name. This is an earlier unit before they acquired the company.

Motel Room Radio item #1419
Neat looking 6 tube metal cased radio made to be used in a motel room. The earlier coin operated mechanism was reconverted by the manufacturer to a regular radio (they rived plates over the coin slot and return). The case is in decent shape with some wear related scratches on top and in the front. Perhaps a little cleaning and polishing the aluminum trim will help. The radio itself was serviced and works great. The lock on the back is missing but any round key operated locking mechanism will sufffice (I may try to find one myself). One interesting feature is that there is a volume control in front but one in back on the chassis as well. The one in the rear was used to set the maximum volume range and once the back was locked you could only adjust the "permissible volume" in the front. I guess this prevented guests from blasting out their neighbors. Imagine the stories this radio could tell!

Soundscriber Dictation Disc Recorder and Player item #1408
Here is a tube oddity sure to be of interest. It is a Soundscriber dictation device that uses a small disc to record and playback. This dictation format was introduced in 1945 by The SoundScriber Corp. (New Haven). It recorded sound by "pressing" grooves into soft vinyl discs. Competing products were the Gray Audograph and Dictaphone DictaBelt.The format remained popular for two decades, due in part to the robustness of the discs and the ease with which they could be mailed. The green discs with their characteristic square center hole came in two sizes, 6 inches (known as "Mail Chute") that played for fifteen minutes, and 4-inch "Memo Discs" with eight minutes of recording time. The one I am selling is in very good condition and the original finish on the Ingrahamn wood cabinet is in great shape. It has a tube chassis and comes complete with an original box of green recording discs. Even has the removable microphone that screams 1940's vintage. It is being sold untested. Here is a great article on the Soundscriber and its restoration Makes a wonderful display piece.
