Fisher Lincoln model 70 record changer, anyone have one?
« on: April 07, 2018, 07:27:00 AM »
I recently received a 1963 Fisher Lincoln changer, I was curious if anyone else had one. They are hard to find, and work on a vacuum system to play

I'd love to just SEE one.  Rare as hens teeth.  Hear they're a bear to get working.

I got one when I bought the innards from an E.H. Scott 510 custom console (true Scott fans get sniffy over these later models).  The Lincoln changer  had the vacuum pump and all so it could flip records over and play both sides.  But it had lots of specific rubber parts that had hardened and cracked from age.  I donated the device to a local musical instrument museum (The Music House, north of Traverse City).  It's a cool place--they have a huge Mortier mechanical dance-hall organ, a Wurlitzer from a theater, and many smaller musical devices.  Here's a link:

Chris,

Glad you are promoting the "Music House".  It's a real gem that everyone should see.
