      Dave, is this the same CAPEHART that also made the now rather infamous automatic 78RPM record changers (that also flipped the records) and mechanical bridge tables that dealt their own cards?? (both those would have been earlier than TV sets, if so)

      Oops, I answered my own question -- it IS apparently the same as the record-changer (the AMPERION you mention) though no doubt before TV sets. My BAD in that I got the bridge table wrong, the HAMMOND Company of Chicago made those. (also clocks and electric organs)

      Here's the record changer -- can you imagine such a contraption banging fragile shellac discs around?? <lol>
