                                              REPAIR OF A ROLLER ORGAN PART 1

We were sent an Autophone Concert Roller Organ for evaluation and possible repair.   One look and you can probably conclude that it is a basket case, not worth the cost of repair.

We cleaned it just enough to determine what the issues were, then advised the owner what a repair would cost, with the comment that it was no economically advisable.

As is the case in several repairs we have made, this was a family piece from several generations back and economics was not the main driving force.

We agreed on a price and are starting the work to return it to as near original condition as is practical.  With a lot of work, our goal is to get it looking about like this.

And having it play of cours.
