Large Symphonion disc music box mechanism needing full restoration. It appears to use 15.5 discs and is center post driven. As found condition, except that I removed the musical combs so that additional damage to them could be avoided. Each comb has about 75 notes. Please see pictures to examine them carefully. No rust on the combs, just a lot of yuck, tarnish, dried grease, etc. Star wheels appear to be frozen. A good ultrasonic cleaning and lube should get them moving again. Damper rail has some bent dampers. Bed plate measures 19 7/8″ long and 5 5/8″ wide and is in good condition – no cracks or repairs. Spring barrel is large and heavy duty, measuring 5.25 in diameter. Spring is fully unwound and does not appear to be broken. All of the gears that are present appear to be in good, usable condition with no major wear or missing teeth. Winding arbor post is very large at. This item is heavy at 30 pounds (unpacked). The pictures are part of the description. It is not complete. If you don’t see it in the pictures, it is not there.
