Item specifics

Used: An item that has been previously used. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of ... Read moreabout the condition
Type: Telegraphy
Decade: 1960s Colour: Grey
Here we have a Creed tape reader (automatic tape transmitter) in very good working order and in original condition too
This machine operates directly on 240v AC mains
It has series wound governed motor which runs very well and the unit was tested and reads a punched paper tape.
There is a huge removable multiway plug and socket connection at the rear (see photo3) leading out to a long grey cable and the machine has a fixed mains power cable.
It has an electromagnetic clutch for starting tape transmission and tight tape feeders with switching which can stop the tape feed too.
The sound cover is also in good condition, all 4 holding pins with their anti-vibrations mounts are OK and the internal foam is all there
It has a blue plate fitted to the front of it (see photo4) saying: U DIVISION TEST EQUIPMENT - LINE COMMUNICATIONS DIVISION THE MARCONI COMPANY LIMITED LONDON
Photo 5 shows the Creed builders plate.
This item also comes with a box of bits from what appears to be from a similar but dismantled machine, including a motor

This tape reader is a very rare item and is in good working condition.
No offers accepted, and no early ending.
No warranty is implied or given for this machine.
Can't post it - so cash on collection only.
I can however offer a wooden crated & insured shipping to outside of the UK

Please see the other auctions as there is a Creed 75RP teleprinter listed - which can punch paper tapes
