"Vintage storacall answering machine.

In working order, but will need some work to bring it up to scratch. There's a bit of a dint in the main incoming tape pinch roller.
Believed to be of Japanese manufacture.
Here's a web page I made about it. [link removed by eBay] (thanks ebay- that helps - just google andydoz and storacall, that should find it)
Sadly the tapes will be erased, as they contain some personal information.
Sorry about the postage cost. It's quite heavy.

cool machine!

Fun thing is that in the operating instructions every chapter starts with "turn power off" ... :-)

So they do. Clearly it can't handle the mode being changed on-the-fly!
