Mills Automatic Phonograph
By Kate FitzGerald

-- forwarded message, please reply to sender and MMD --

I am trying to find information on an old coin-operated jukebox that
I recently acquired.  It plays 12 78-rpm discs and is about 5 feet
tall, made entirely of wood.  The records each sit on a metal disk;
the disks are arranged in a kind of a fan shape that can be seen
through the front window.  Inside there is a tag that says Mills
Automatic Phonograph, Chicago, IL, with patent #'s for other countries.

I would like to restore this item to working condition; the person
I got it from thought in needed "tubes."  Any ideas?
