Seek: Calliope Plans
By David Repanshek

I have built a Wurlitzer Model 105 Military Band Organ from scratch.
After two years and $3000 in material I now have what I think is a very
good organ.  I used a Dayton blower vice the bellows for reliability.

I am now wanting to build a steam or air calliope.  Does anybody have
any plans out there for such a project?  If so please e-mail me back at  Thanks.

 [ An article titled "Build a Steam Calliope", by Andrew G. Thompson,
 [ appeared in Live Steam magazine, June 1977.
