Nickelodeon Spool Frame With Belt Drive
By Charlie Morgan

In regards the posting in 040528 MMDigest by Ed Gloeggler dated
5/28/04.  Firstly, I wish people's email addresses were posted on
their posts so we could email them directly, but since I don't have
that I have to put in an all hands post.

The spool frame you show is almost exactly the same spool frame that
I have in my orchestrion.  It looks the same but my sides are silver
metal instead of gold metal.  Unfortunately, I have no further
information as to manufacturer, and had been wondering myself who made
this and the instruments I have.  The only text anywhere is on one
motor: it says "Dayton" & "Chicago".  Mine is up and working, so if
you need any wiring help let me know.
