Polyphon chain drive
By Angelo Rulli

I just restored a Polyphon 15 1/2" with a coil spring instead of the usual spring barrel and a chain drive to transmit power. This is presumed to be a late model; few are known to be in existence.

The wooden case has been tampered with and it is missing the wooden separator board between the governor and bedplate and the lid picture. If anyone has any information about this model and a description of the case, please contact either Jody or myself. Thank you.
