Thirty min. ago the third package mysteriously showed up on my door step.
I bought an original slightly rough floor stand for my Hawthorne and, Sheble brass horn, which I'll be putting on machine.
The repro. Honker I'll put on my two min. Home.
Reproducer needs rebuilding, and, I have to replace shot cabinet feet.

Floor stand is still in Illinois. It won't be coming today...
Put a new needle in my Newcomb TR 16A tonight. Sounds much better, but, I suspect the needle cushion is plastic. Needle wants to jump in the grooves.

Looked it up this morning. It finally made it to Tampa at midnight, last night. And, this is expedited??????

Orderred a few parts to do phono repairs............

Found out as I wind it, motor bounces around. I suspect some rubber grommets are missing.

Ah, phooey!!!!!!!!!!!!

I should have gotten the crane for my standard today. No notice. No delivery. It was sent by the fastest route. As of last night, it was in a Tampa sort facility. As of today, it's still there. Just checked.
Lousy post office!!!!!!!!!!!! That's expedited service.......

IT finally arrived. I started a thread thinking there was nothing else written. My bad. I did a lot of straightening of shaft, and, mandrel doesn't bounce any more. But, I still have something causing trouble. It took a lot of hard work to get the mandrel shaft out of bearing, and, replace pot metal bearing with a new bronze one.
The horn looks beautiful. Still has some bugs, but, has nice sound out of the horn.
