Welcome to Belfast Farm, your source for quality phonographs and clocks. Belfast Farm is located in south-central PA. The farm deeds back to the 1760’s and was a large tract of land settled by the Scots-Irish. The sketch above is my farm and was drawn in the 1870’s. It was published in a book titled Historical Sketches of Franklin County, PA. The limestone house was built around 1802. My shop is located on the property.

I hope you enjoy visiting my website. I will strive to keep it interesting with fresh to the market phonographs and clocks for sale. I will also add historic phonograph related photos and write articles regarding the history of clocks built in Waynesboro. By the way, there was a phonograph manufacturing company in Waynesboro in the 1920’s (Deca Disc). I am actively seeking to buy any Waynesboro manufactured clocks, Deca Disc phonograph, John Noll or J.H. Johnston Pa. longrifles made in Waynesboro.

I travel the U.S. looking to buy one or entire phonograph and clock collections. I really enjoy meeting and talking with other phonograph and clock enthusiasts. I can provide estate appraisals and provide rental phonographs and clocks for movie props.

I have been safely shipping fragile items since I started this business. My wife and I use the best packing material and strong boxes to ship via. FedEx or USPS. I will work with your choice of freight shippers for larger items. I recommend R & L Shippers. I also have a truck driver that has been working with me on shipments to the southern U.S.

We also ship internationally!

I started this business in 1980 while working full-time in law enforcement in Southern California. Upon retirement in 1994, my phonograph and clock business became full-time and I moved back to my home born state of Pennsylvania. I started in 1997 and continue selling on eBay under the seller name Metrosam.

I’ve conducted public lectures and exhibitions on the subjects of phonographs and clocks manufactured in Waynesboro, PA and in 2010 joined the board of the directors of Renfrew Museum and Park in Waynesboro, a beautiful historical 107 acre community gem with some nice examples of early Waynesboro tall case clocks.


I acknowledge and am grateful to have made many friends and met top expert collectors and auctioneers in this business. I strive to positively contribute to this hobby and business.
