@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...
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." '
