References relating to the Verbena Barrel Piano are in MMD 980126,

tion, one entry was posted to me directly (I have removed the name as
I did not ask permission before reprinting)

Further, after making the new brass barrel snail cam to repair the
instrument I received locally, I took my newly machined cam to a local
foundry and had 10 copies made. Since my last report to the MMD, two
more Verbena pianos were shipped to me, to have new brass cams
installed. I am photographing them for an MBSI article.
