First I`d like to get a list of the numbers and titles of those discs :)

Second, the crank is quite easy... just take a 6mm bar and cut a thread
of about 1 CM length at one end and then bend it to a crank:


= =thread
o =wooden part of crank

finally drill a 6mm hole into what u want to make the holding of the
crank (mostly pear-shaped piece of wood):

     /     \_____                   --> instrument side
     \           \
      ============  <--drilled hole
     /      _____/

But, of course, you can also get a crank from over here... just tell so.

P.S.: remembers me that I still have to repair a 24-Ariston... *sigh*
