Although I did all the rebuilding myself, I could not have done so without the knowledge and advice of those who have come before, which has been passed down for persons such as myself.
I hereby inscribe an “honour roll” to acknowledge those who helped me along the way; my sincere apologies to anyone I may have inadvertently missed!
The Honour Roll:
Arthur Reblitz: for instructive and expansive volumes on both the piano and the player piano
John Ross: for advice, encouragement, and lending of select equipment and tools
Mark Reinhart and Tim Baxter: for moral support, technical advice, and good counsel
Ralph Nielsen and Bruce Newman: for technical tips and instructional videos
Doug Bullock for technical advice and provision of supplies
Julian Dyer, Don Teach, Andrew Barrett and others: for administrating the Facebook player piano groups
AMICA and MMD admins: for keeping these organizations going, in furnishing access to technical advice and documents (particularly Terry Smythe for scanning and uploading much material online)
John A Tuttle: special thanks to John for answering many many emails, providing a dedicated website and video channel for information, and making supplies and parts available for purchase, to help “keep the music rolling”!
My significant other: extra special thank you for your support, encouragement, patience and tolerance of a hobby which took over a surprisingly large area of our home, for quite some time!
