@Set Square: If you want to see a comercial version of the the science museum in London UK did have one on display...


I last visited the London Science Museum in 2010 when I was speaking at the Embedded System Conference (I also got my picture taken standing next to the "Dr Who" style Police Box outside of Earl's Court Tube Station, but that's another story) ... but I don't recall seeing this in the museum ... maybe it' sjust a case of not knowing what I was looking at...

Ah, the 1930s version of an MP3 player ... I wonder why it never caught on :-)

@Tom: I've been wondering for years what to do with this machine.  Perhaps I should contact Mr. Woods?

Mr Woods is building his own ... I on the other hand am sitting here with a little reat rolling down my cheek because I do not own a magnetic wire recorde (sad face).

Have you seen the video in my Welcome to the Pleasure Dome blog about my office? I would be DELIGHTED to make room for a wire recorder ... quite apart from anything else I already have a boxed spool of recording wire here in the office with a note on the back that seems to indicate it contains a recording -- I've long wondered what is on that wire...

@Tom: ...it came with what I think is a historic recording of Father Devine leading his congregatin in a refrain of "If It Had Not Been For Jesus, I Would Not Be Here Today."'


Oh no! Now I'll be tapping my foot and humming that tune all day!

Many years ago a company I worked for used the technique that these devices use to measure the length of steel wires.  It worked very well and was sold into the cable/wire making industry for some years.  If you want to see a comercial version of the the science museum in London UK did have one on display.  very impresive with reals about 4ft in diameter.  Roger

Not only do I have a actual working wire recorder but it came with what I think is a historic recording of Father Devine leading his congregatin in a refrain of "If It Had Not Been For Jesus, I Would Not Be Here Today." '

I've been wondering for years what to do with this machine.  Perhaps I should contact Mr. Woods?
