Air-Motors and Idleness
By John A. Tuttle

Hi everybody,

In my continuing effort to provide the Internet with useful
information about Player Pianos, I have created yet another

In this page, I explain a Simple Test to determine if the air-motor
is operating poorly due to the fact that it has been setting in one
position for an extended period of time and the methodology I recommend
to reduce the problem that idleness can create. It also includes some
information about air-motor maintenance, cleaning and other common

It is my intention to create a page/s related to the 'Common
Problems with Aging Players' in the near future. If you haven't
been to the site ( recently, you will find
lots of new pages. There is now a Want Ads Page to compliment
the For Sale Page. The background color of the Main Page can
also be changed from "Shocking Fuchsia" to White, Black, Yellow
or Light-Blue.

As usual, your comments and/or suggestions are always welcome.
