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.
