@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?

@Rick: Max, you've simply got to get a bigger office. Maybe something along the lines of Warehouse 13..

That is a great program ... but I know you Rick, if you saw one of these little magnetic wire recorder beauties at a flea market, you simply wouldn't be able to resist :-)

Fascinating retro tech. But this Luddite still prefers to be on the other end of the microphone.

Today's ProTools jockeys are equally facinating with what they can do as they speed through menus manipulating digital audio
