Looking for a used 45 rpm record lathe.

This is a special section, perhaps temporary, to help our man Timmy1 with his efforts to assemble a working 8J10 Wilcox-Gay Recordette for experimental record cutting. The reasons for this will be explained shortly, but please do check in and help! He's a great guy with a worthy project.

Hey Timmy,

There's a Recordette on ebay right now I ran across:

http://cgi.ebay.com/WILCOX-GAY-RECORDET ... 1|294%3A50


I have this same machine, and its good for getting started doing lathe cuts.

Well you should get up earlier and bid because at US $175.05 you can't afford to miss out on this stuff.

I was wondering would a 45 recorder be easier to get records for since I have old 45's I can coat them with laquer and if I get blanks I can copy 45's?
