Hi Guys, I have fortunately just acquired a C1924 Thorens “Picnic” portable record player and Edison cylinder player that I’d like to restore. I have done some antique restoration in the past, so I can probably handle the wooden components and possibly the horn, however the mechanical components, whilst incredibly simple are possibly beyond my capabilities - in particular the Thorens main spring has broken and apart from a watchmaker, I’m not sure where to start? The Edison works perfectly, but lacks a support arm and adapter sleeve for the horn. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks, Malcolm
