Hi Jon,

Thanks for the tip!  I had to go look and make sure but my player is an 
Edison.. I bought it in Iowa in 1976 but it is not in pristine shape. The 
lid needs work and the rest could just use refinishing.   Someone later in 
this thread mention the volume you could get from one of these and I agree. 
I love the volumne control!  For those of you that haven't seen one it's a 
round puffy ball that slides up into the horn blocking the audio.

Really cool!

73 Larry WA9VRH

     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.
