Tune Strips For Sankyo 20-Note Manivelle
By Matthew Caulfield

It is good to know that Hans-Martin Meyer-Georges has some expertise
in punching the paper strips that operate the little 20-note Sankyo
manivelle.  The MBSI web site gets occasional requests for information
on custom pinning of musical movements.  Which Reuge does offer, but
with such an arranging cost and minimum-order requirement as to price
it out of most people's range.

Our reply usually suggests that the inquirer investigate the Sankyo
hand-cranked movement, which Nancy Fratti <>
and probably others sell for around $55.  But now we can also mention
Hans-Martin as a sources of expertise.
