Fully cranked, it can play 2 of the standard 10" records before needing rewinding. 10" records held up to 3 minutes of recording. That is what set the standard length of popular songs for many years. The earliest 78s though, were only 2 minutes just like Edison's cylinders.

I only crank mine enough for a single play. I don't want to take a chance on breaking my almost 100 year-old spring. And yes, the record slows down if it winds down but until then, the speed is constant due to a governor.

Thats a gorgeous piece! and yes i love the contrast of the old and new with the router. Myself i have a gorgeous old magneto phone that i hooked up to my ATA so i could recieve an IP call on my asterisk on it, just to prove how great old stuff is
