Seek Welte Licensee Pump Connecting Straps
By Jonathan Holmes
I had all-but-finished the restoration of my Waddington upright Welte
Licensee reproducing piano, when one of the straps connecting the
bellows to the crank broke. I have been searching in vain for the
material that is needed to replace the four connectors.
I need only a small amount. An American collector promised to send me a
Piece; but it has not been forthcoming, and now my emails to him bounce
back. I have tried two belting suppliers in the UK, and they look at me
as if I am asking the impossible.
Can anybody help me, please? The Welte Licensee is _very_ rare in the
UK, somewhat like chickens' teeth!
