In the modern day of electronic and digitized sounds, we have forgotten that older machines are of a mechanical nature, and these machines are prone to worn and broken mainsprings, gears, shafts, governor springs, and can even accumulate old grease and oils which are not doing their proper job, instead they can attract dirt, grit and debris which can wear on moving parts and gearing. We offer the following motor services.

MOTOR SERVICES          

 Mainspring Replacements-We can provide replacement of old mainspring(s), which are broken, which provides no turntable power, and weak springs which provide sluggish, and quicker loss of turntable power. If you are unable to play a complete record on a half or full wind-up, you should consider mainspring replacement.

Some motors have more than 1 mainspring, some machines have 2, 3 and even 4 mainsprings. We require all be changed to reduce the chance that the new main-spring does not end up breaking the old ones.  We will also clean your motor and re-lubricate, adjust and test. (NOTE: MAINSPRINGS ARE DANGEROUS, NO SALES OF MAINSRINGS, ONLY INSTALLED IN YOUR MOTOR).

Single Spring Motor Mainspring Installation and Motor Cleaning......$ 175.00

Double Spring Motor, Mainspring Installation and Motor Cleaning....$ 300.00

Triple Spring Motor, Mainspring Installation and Motor Cleaning.....$ 425.00

Four Spring Motor, Mainspring Installation and Motor Cleaning.......$ 500.00

NOTE: Most Motors have two mainsprings, call us if you need to know.

Here is a quick reference on typical mainspring count:

Edison Model B-19....................... Single Spring

Victrola VV-IV............................ Single Spring

Victrola VV-VI............................ Double Spring

Columbia Q.............................. Single Spring

Victrola VV-IX........................... Double Spring

Inquire, this is just a helpful estimate, some motors may vary in mainspring count. 

GOVERNOR SPRING REPLACEMENT

Does your turntable run too fast? Does it run uneven speed? Chances are your governor springs need replaced. Some governors have riveted weights, so weights will be additional charge. We will remove the governor, replace springs and weights (if necessary), re-assemble, install and adjust in your motor. Please note some governors have two or three governor springs. ALL must be replaced to function properly.

Governor Spring Replacement..................................$ 39.50 per motor.

If weights are needed..........add $ 8.00 per weight.

Shipping & Handling.............$15.00 per motor.
