Well, I'm paying for it today in pain, but, yesterday I slowly moved my last main four drawer file cabinet in dinning room into florida room along with over one thousand records.
I them moved a small chest of drawers from living room into dr. I put stuff on top of it, and, put my Edison Amberola 30 on top of a pine book case. I put up over 100 BA cylinders in there, including on a modern steel wall rack that holds about 90 records.
I can now get to more stuff in living room.
I have been sweeping floors, and,need to do mopping.
When finnished, I'll snap some photos for you to see.

I still have much to do, and, will be moving more stuff, but, I'm coming along. Sorry for the mix ups. I put them in order, but, they dame out of order.
The room where you see the one cylinder player, the comb. tv sets., the phone, book case, and, chest of drawers is the new music room.
The Isle with the lps. tv's, and, other room are living romm-display room.

Awesome collection Bill.

I see you're somewhat like me with books too. I am definitely a book nut.

Also, when was the last time you played all those LP's? Very Happy

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. But, the important thing is I can play whatever, whenever. And, that's only part of my collection.
Yes, I used to enjoy reading. As a teen, I often went to the main branch of the Detroit Public Library. Spent hours there.

Looks like many cool projects. I'm in a similar mode. Things were getting too cramped so it has been (slowly) clean up time the last few months.

Be careful there cleaning Bill, Thats how I broke my ankle.I just about ran out of room in my shop as well thats why I am trying ot get it organized. That and I can't find anything. You got a great collection there. I see at least one of those little small motorolas I think there. I love to see stuff like this preserved, so much has been lost. It is just now being seen as worth preserving by others than ourselves.

My daughter is at college now for the last few years. One weekend she came home and we got to talking about my workshop. I started in with the Fred G. Sanford bit of one day of when I am gone this vast empire will be yours. I also called it a museum as well. When I posted on facebook one time of something I fixed to get her going I said "The
world famous Smithville vintage woodworking tool and electronic
apparatus museum and We are a free museum but remember the tickets are free but must
be made in advance. "

So we replied back and forth about that and it has stuck. So whenever I post something I fixed I always post in the post about the world famous museum.

In a bit, I'll have a few more pics. I moved stuff.
Thanks for the compliments, guys. Would you believe that the two outside horn machines were both junk when I got them?? I kid you not!
Wait 'till you see them up close.
Thanks, again, guys.

Thanks, guys. I'm already hurting badly.
But, I've been wanting to do this for a very long time.
It's actually starting to get livable here...........
I think another stuffed chair in the lr might be in order next year.

Yep. I have to put it back on the bench. I had it restored, and, playing. Now, picture is all screwed up, and, I smell resistor burning.
I think mica caps flew south.
It's a 16" round.
There should be a thread on it in the tv section.
Right now I'm still working on my 1949 Admrial 10" bakelite console tv.

I recognized the cabinet doors, my grandmother had one. She also had a "remote control". She used to say; "Larry, put on Perry Como" or "Larry, put on Gunsmoke"

I would do it for her, so I guess her "remote" worked!
lol!

Bill has inspired me to clean my collection/man-room. Been a good year and lots of dust. 11 tabletops and 5 transistor radios cleaned. Sheeeshh! I'll post pictures of the completed project when I am done. 60 or so more radios to go.

Oh hey Bill can I have your permission to post pics of my stuff? I don't want to "hijack" your thread. I can do seperate thread if you like. Thanks.
