    Wanted--Gramophone needles



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I inherited a 1923 HMV wind up gram, seized up and filthy. Anyway, it's now fully working (and clean) but has a rapacious appetite for needles. The original blurb says a new needle for each play, but I've got a tin of 1950s bronze ones that offer between 3 and 6 plays, but am fast running out. So among my fellow geriatrics, have you got any secreted away that would give you great pleasure in donating?

    Tried fleabay, but they are mostly interested in selling the tins, I don't care about tins, I just want to play my old R&R 78s
