Yes That is what is known as an Amberola.
It was designed to play Edison Amberola cylinders.

Keep checking Ebay. Research the actual name of the part and do some online searches. Units worse than yours become donors regularly.

Thank you. It is the first attempt. I think I could of used one more coat of stain on the veneer.I put Minwax Paste Finishing Wax on it.I used a buffer to put shine on it.I am not sure how to take wax of and put another coat of stain on.
