Hello,

I have an antique wind-up gramophone (photo is here below).

Apparently, the turntable requires too much winding (30, without noticeable resistance, for approx. 3 min 30 sec playing). The motor parts and spring have been re-greased recently. I wonder if it should be like this or something is wrong.
How many times is this type of gramophone supposed to be wind-up at a time?
How long is the winding supposed to last?
