Is that one of those home-record-making machines, or as a friend and I joked, an "LP-R drive"?

Probably cant find new ones. Getting stylus/coil parts for it would be difficult at best.

I think the microphone it comes with is kind of neat looking.

Looks a little like a Shure 707; I have one. Those ball-shaped microphones are popular with harmonica players. I have a couple, probably should sell them.

Heck, I even have an antique Ampex 400A professional tape recorder that is taking up too much space in my living room.

I used to have a wilcox-gay recordio that was more of a portable if you could call it that. Looks like the knobs and buttons are about the same. When I got it about 35 years ago, I replaced the cutter cartredge, cutter needle, and crystal microphone element which appears to be the exact same microphone. Of course I had to replace the filter electrolytics as well. Too bad I didn't keep it. I still have several home recordings my sister and I made playing the piano, singing, etc. Although really scratchy sounding they still play, on 78 RPM. I played them and converted them to MP3 files for safe keeping. The recordings are now backed up on my external drive. I don't know if you can still find blank discs today or not, keep checking e-bay and craigs.
