Drawings of Nickelodeon Components
By Jack M. Conway

In response to Don Teach's question about nickelodeon drawings, I
wondered if he has or knows about the Vestal Press Technical Series.

I don't know if they are still available under the new management. I
believe that I have the whole set but am not sure; after I bought
everything that they relating to my collection I seemed to stop getting
their catalog.

I have the following drawing sets:

Technical Series No. 1, Coinola X roll frame for "O" rolls,
By Harvey N. Roehl.

Technical Series No. 2, The Seeburg Rewind-Replay Gear Shifter
(Pneumatic Lock and Cancel Type), By Michael L. Kitner.

Technical Series No. 3, How To Rebuild The Model A Ampico,
By David Saul.

Technical Series No. 4, Wurlitzer Band Organ Bell Unit,
By W. J. Kerchner.

Technical Series No. 5, Rebuilding The Duo-Art Reproducing Piano
Mechanism, By Michael L. Kitner.

Technical Series No. 6, Wurlitzer Snare Drum Pneumatic (1918 Model),
By William J. Kerchner.

Technical Series No. 7,  Flutes And Chest For Coinola Piano,
By Ted Gray and Gloria Scott.

Technical Series No. 8, The Link Reiterating Pneumatic,
By Michael L.  Kitner and Gloria Scott

Technical Series No. 9, Duo- Art Logic Chart,
By Daniel L. Schacher and Susan Scott.

Technical Series No. 10, How Top Build Mandolin Devices For Upright
Pianos, By Alan R. Pier and Susan Scott.

Technical Series No. 11, Kelly's Kartridge Lock and Cancel Valve,
By John Kelly and Gloria Scott.

Technical Series No. 12, Seeburg Pneumatic Stack (Late Style Piano),
By William J. Kerchner.

Technical Series No. 13, Seeburg Snare Drum Beater,
By Edward Hattrup

Most of the series are fold-out blueprint size drawings, some with text
and photos.  If they are available for reprint they might make a good
start for Don's set.
