The Phonograph Repeater

Watch a video of this thing here.

From the early 1900s, these were the very first automatic repeat gadgets for records. The needle would reach the end of a record (give or take a few seconds), then the needle would catch on the repeater and rotate it to the beginning of the record (again, give or take a few seconds)

The Geer Repeater
