Sold beginning around 1906 by the O'Neill-James company of Chicago, the Busy Bee disc was another machine of Hawthorne and Sheble manufacture. An extra projection on the turntable was intended to lock to purchaser into Busy Bee brand records.
A cylinder Busy Bee machine, a modified version of a Columbia Q, was also distributed by the O'Neill-James company.
