Paper Record Player

A little whimsy for your rainy Sunday afternoon.

A fully working, manual record player made entirely of paper. To play the record the 
handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a steady 331/3rpm. The paper cone
 then acts as a pickup, amplifying the sound enough to make it audible. (Record shown, 
The Sound of Music 1965).

Do we have a figure for estimated stylus life? I’m guessing it’s in the order of seconds!!

But cheap to replace!
