Recordette questions

This is where record cutters raise questions about cutting, and trade wisdom and experiment results. We love Scully, Neumann, Presto, & Rek-O-Kut lathes and Wilcox-Gay Recordios (among others). We are excited by the various modern pro and semi-pro systems, too, in production and development. We use strange, extinct disc-based dictation machines. And other stuff, too.

Recordette questions

Unread postby Muziani » Wed Aug 31, 2016 5:20 am

Hello everyone. I am brand new to this and have been pouring over this forum as much as I can. I literally am starting from a point of zero knowledge on lathe cutting. My question is I recently got a Wilcox gay recordette of of eBay and it's missing the cutter. The guy I got it from say it powers on an the motor works but I have yet to plug it in to test it. I was waiting to send it to a professional. Now it's my understanding that it's a crystal head. Can that be converted to
a magnetic? And can I modify this so I can cut into vinyl blanks? And does anyone know who would do this type of work? Thank you so much for your time. This forum is so helpful.
