I have a "real" Edison that almost caused a divorce between my Grandparents
as Grandma bought via the devil....ON CREDIT!  (oh horrors) Apparently
Grandpa had a royal fit and went down to J.L. Hudsons the next morning and
paid if off.  I have four drawers full of disks and want to move them to
digital without harming them. Any guidance? I see there is a stylus marketed
for this purpose, any experience??

     Larry,
   The 80 RPM records were made for the Edison players, which
  used a real diamond stylus. They are ruined by playing on
  a Victor or other player with a steel "needle".
   One of my Edison records was recorded by Thomas himself,
  a plea for War Bonds during WW1.
  Please save the "thick" ones for a real Edison machine.
