Default Kolster Brandes CG25S dial drive

I am renovating a Kolster Brandes CG20 radiogram and am really struggling with restringing the dial drive. Does anyone have any experience of this model or a diagram of it please? Any help will be gratefully received!

Paul has the circuit(top right) but it does not appear to cover the dial cord.

Thanks for that - as it turns out it is a CG25S, not a CG20. Is there a circuit for that?...

I have not heard of a CG25A, but it is likely to be a revised version of the CG25. I believe the CG25 is the radiogram version of the CR25. I would think it almost certainly uses the same chassis and dial cord arrangements.
The manufacturers information, which includes the dial cord estrangements can be downloaded from my website. http://www.kbmuseum.org.uk/kb_servic...KB_CR25_kb.pdf
The CG25 model would be the AC/DC version of the AC only CG20, which should also be on my website under CR20.

Do let us know if that drawing is correct for your CG25.

The web site is in the hands of the designer as we write. It will be R C Snelling Audio and Visual museum.
We had to vacate the building which housed the museum and put the items into storage. The online museum will be up and running soon. Here is a link you may be interested in https://www.ertonline.co.uk/indepth/...lings-norwich/

Dave
