Hi Jim, hope you enjoy the forum as well!
Can I ask, who did you inherit your gramophone from, and what kinds of records were with it? I love to hear the history behind these things. Look forward to hearing more from you as it's great to have new members.

Hello Jim, welcome to the forum. Hope you will have a pleasant stay here.
I wish I could have started this "collecting experience" with an EMG or Expert machine like your! :lol: :(

Rgodridge asks : "from where did i obtain my Expert Junior Gramophone" i didn't buy it new but Inherited it from an Elderly Cousin of My Mother's who was Vicar of a Rural Parish in Devonshire, he had bought it New in 1931 from Mr E M Ginn . Cousin Henry then obtained new records by Parcel and had to cycle 4 miles to the nearest Railway station every month to collect the Box

The machine is spring wound as the Vicarage had no electricity even in 1974 when i went to collect this machine.

The Machine & the records have given me many hundreds of Hours of delight although i am somewhat surprised that there are others about as i assumed until fairly recently that this was the only machine of it's kind

thats a nice story jim,it's always nice to have a bit of history with the machine.i have a couple of gramophones myself that i bought and elderly sellers have told me they can remember their father playing it when they were children.in those examples i put a simple handwritten piece of paper in the case documenting it's story of who owned it and where it was bought........unfortunately too many gramophones don't have a story and are bought and sold on numerous occasions.

How very interesting - i always assumed that all Expert machines were electric especially the Junior as the handle on most gramophones emerges from the right hand side of the case but with the expert Junior the plumbing for the tonearm would be in the way

Would you mind showing us a picture so we can see how they solved this - it's especially interesting as a machine which is untouched and has had only had two owners is unusual
