Webster-Chicago Model 165-1A

Does anyone hear have any info on this changer? I was wondering when this model was made but haven't been able to learn anything about it. I brought this back from Texas last year. Everything works but it sometimes slows down when running at 33 1/3 RPM, so I know I probably have an idler issue at that speed. The unit has 2 idlers, one for 78 RPM and the other for 33 1/3 RPM. I'm guessing this to be from around 1949, am I even close?

If it's only 33 and 78, '48-'49 would be about right. the two-speed changers went away quickly, as soon as the 45 rpm record was introduced in '49.

Is it just the changer mech or is it a complete accessory phono attachment?

I have a W/C amp but I have no plans to sell short of being offered a small mountain of cash...

It's just a 2-speed changer. I used to see the amps from time to time but haven't seen one in years.
