"The Squire" rambles on about very unusual Garrard Motors 21 & 24

This is a Video "the Squire " And I made a few days ago - we mentioned in a former video some gramophone & accessory catalogues which had some motors in which we hadn't seen THEN "the Squire" actually managed to buy a very nice portable with a Garrard No 21 in it and found a Garrard no 24 3 Speed Spring motor - both very unusual motors

The Garrard no 24 actually a fitting on the speed control which means that it has pre - set speed positions for 78/33/45 which must mean that it was designed to be used in a portable machine with a pickup and battery operated sound system so it's probably the very last spring motor for any talking machine and made in the 1950's when batterys were large , heavy and short lived and a motor would drain them too quickly to be of use

here'ts the Video

The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
