Spotted an Air King tabletop phonograph in an auction today and placed first bid at $20. Can't find any information about it-no model numbers on the unit. Anyone have a web resource that I can check out? Thanks for helping. Doug

Could you post some pics? Are there any numbers at all stamped somewhere on the chassis? Oh, by the way, welcome to TRF. Smile Maybe try this web site http://www.antiqueradios.com

Thank you for the welcome and responding to my inquiry! I am a long time lover of tube radios. I did purchase the Air King today-although not for the original $20 bid! I feel like a kid who just got a new bike. It's really awesome. It is an Air King A-750-1. It has the ability to record on wire and also has a turntable. I'm hoping to find some info about this unit; what it was used for, it's age, any history at all, did I pay too much or get a good deal-I paid $50. Thank you again, I appreciate any assistance you can give me. I am having trouble figuring out how to post pictures, so will wait until tomorrow and see if I can figure it out then.

Doug here again. Just a quick addition: I bought my first tube type radio 20 years ago-GE floor model-which I still have and have had hours of fun with it. We can pick up Cuba, French Canadian stations. I also have other tube radios and phonographs that I have acquired over the years, some still in stages of restoration. Glad to have found you!

Glad you found the model #. Please post some pics when you can. I would like to see what it looks like. Sounds like your about to have some fun with your new found phonograph. Cool

Posted two photos in Photobucket--Air King phonograph--won't let me post to gallery as it says it is full. Can't seem to figure out how to add to this message-when I add the link I just get a blank message. Hopefully you can check them out at Photobucket. Thanks!

I've seen several wire recorder/phonograph combo's before but none quite like yours. Looks to be a nice clean set and appears complete with microphone. I think you did good on the price. Recording wire comes up on occasion on Ebay. Nice set!
