                                         TOM THUMB REPAIR                    PART 4

As 2017 progressed, the Tom Thumb Player Piano lost it's enthusiasm and by the time we closed for the season, it was ready for some help.

Well, removing the pump section damaged the bottom board because of the way it was firmly glued to the frame, so we made a new part and prepared to recover the section.

After duplicating the original hinge section, we have the section ready to recover.

Our intent is to use a more conventional gasket and screw the attachment to the frame.  So that the next person will not have the issues we faced, the gasket will be glued to the bottom of the pump section.

  1. Plywood for a pump??? How do you expect this to be airtight? This isn't proper workmanship at all. This won't do, mate.
