I've restored this gram, only to have a spring break when trying out.
Does anyone know where I can get replacements ?
The drum has 2 springs -only one is broken about 20% in from the center. however I suspect the other is also a bit weak,as the motor had to be wound right up to play through one record side.

Resurrection radio would be the first place I look.

Just been catching up on a lot of the "discussions" readings on V-R and your old post caught my eye as I recently bought some Cheney components, not the same as yours as the turntable mine is 110V but the rest is 1920-30 sound box stuff. Any chance of photos as there is very little on the net.

Regards to broken springs , I had the same in other units and fixed them by viewing YouTube how it's done. The first was scary as I visualized the spring flying everywhere but not so if you are careful. I always wear gloves as the springs get very tight and filthy.
