Re: Roll Frames
By Matthew Caulfield

In the last digest Thomas Logan asked about sources for Wurlitzer roll frames. George Cooper (Wichita, KS?), ex-husband of Jill Cooper, Wichita (the woman who made Wurlitzer unit blocks up until recently) makes roll frames, or he did last I knew. I think they were around $500, depending on size. I suggest a call to Player Piano Company, asking to speak to Durrell Armstrong, himself. He ought to know about sources.

Steve Lanick, in Pittsburgh, used to make very excellent and authentic replicas of Wurlitzer roll frames, until OSHA regs and other problems made it hard to find somone to cast the necessary parts.

Regarding the paint scheme for your facade, I am not clear what you are looking for, pictures of original factory-paint facades (of which there are few)?
