There are a great many additional recording systems for which I have not yet posted information.|
Included are the various cylinder formats. I can presently copy from the Edison 2 and 4 minute celluloid and wax formats and those later used for dictation but there are some improvements I want to make to my machine before accepting work involving large numbers of items in this format.
There is a whole family of magnetic discs and sheets for which
I may have only one playere and no technical manual. If you have
work in any of these formats, let me know so I can get them into
Mr. Fix-it's machine restoration backlog. There is usually a four
to six month gestation period before we have one in satisfactory
working order. To protect your media, we always disable the recording
function to avoid accidents, but often the circuit has to be decoded
to figure out how to accomplish this.
I now have a working playback device for embossed clear 35mm sprocketed
film. The system, Recordgraph, used an endless loop film often labelled
I have an accumulation of machines which were brought to market
only to fail quickly, some of which were soley for government use.
If you send a picture (email attachments are OK), I can at least
identify some of them.
