Retalker (Retalker) 1949




This machine was built around 1948. It is not a domestic machine but more of a dictation machine as recorders then were very expensive and not really affordable for the general public. This machine is very unusual as it only has play, rewind and record controls. The counter mechanism is very unusual. This machine has two counters, one of which will only count forward and the other is bi-directional. Neither has a reset button. You deduct one number from the other to work out the tape travel.
