Sugden Connoisseur Vinyl Recording Lathe

Originally uploaded by microphonic.
This is a mono vinyl disc recording lathe which can cut a fixed pitch microgroove record at all the standard speeds. I purchased it from a dealer in North London who back in those days were called "Tam". It was part of a closing down sale. They closed their business when everyone started thinking that the CD format would make vinyl a thing of the past. I restored it to working condition but more work needs to be done on the cutting head before it will give consistent high quality results.
