Fellow and sister musicboxer's out there, please help! I have a Stella
15-1/2" disc music box that was taken apart many years ago in a
misguided attempt at repair.
Predictably, when the fellow realized he was in over his head, he
didn't bother to put it back together, and after he passed away, the
loose parts were lost. The entire star wheel assembly (rectangular
nickel-plated brass block) is gone. Also, the governor was jury-rigged
to the point it would be a monumental task to undo the damage this guy
did when he grafted on what might be part of a washing machine gear
train! An utter disaster.
I need to locate another non-working or unrepairable Stella machine,
from which one or both of these parts could be salvaged. I have
repaired at least a couple dozen Stellas over the last 10 years,
but so far do not have any of these on my salvage/scrap shelves.
If anyone out there in Cyberland has or knows of any such described
Stella that might be available for salvage parts, _please_ contact me
privately by email <firstname.lastname@example.org> or telephone (706) 543-1920.
Thanks, Reg Smith
