TOM THUMB REPAIR PART I
As 2017 progressed, the Tom Thumb Player Piano lost it's enthusiasm and by the time we closed for the season, it was barely playing.
In February of 2018, we moved it to the office, where we had some heat and started looking for the problem . The first check was the box pump. It sits in the bottom of the case.
We removed it and started checking. With all the inlets blocked, it could be turned with almost no resistance, indicating a leak or maybe several leaks. So disassembly was started to allow the four sections to be individually checked.
Future installments will tell you what we found.
