Cliftophone Duplex Needles

Post by Gmemg » Tue Dec 12, 2017 2:46 pm

I have been sorting out derelict machines of all types ready for a huge Bonfire on Nov 5th and during the demolition of a large cabinet machine this packet of needles fell out with some other detritus from a compartment in the back

they are "cliftophone duplex" needles and resemble some sort of very fine folded paperclip - i will do some tests but the needles are fairly rusty and need to be cleaned (in Daddy's Sauce !) before use

apparently they play 6 records and "supercede the Fibre !

and the needle - look closely as the watermark obscures the odd top part of the needle
