I can not remember much of the particular Marque-Ampico in this
instrument, as I sold it over 20 years ago. I do remember it had
a ratchet-wound spring (wound from the foot bellows), with connecting
drives via a long ladder chain to a gramophone-type governor attached
to the roll drive next to the spool box. Beware: I had to replicate
pot metal parts!
