The Fabulous VICTROLA "45" Continued... additional 45 rpm Phonographs

This section is a continuation of PhonoJack's 45 RPM Phonograph Collection.

Most of the phonograph in my collection have been gently restored to look like the original.  But, it's fun to break some rules, make some of these machine perform much better than the original and in some cases save some 'junkers' with a little body work and paint.  This section includes some machines that might have been destined for the junk heap, but saved.

I hope you enjoy these photos.  To enlarge, just click the image to see more.
