Lubrication of Wurlitzer Roll Drive Mechanism
By Tommy Forney

I would like to hear a discussion of general lubrication of roll frame
mechanisms and drive trains, especially for Wurlitzer Band Organ roll
frames.  What's the best type of oil?  90-weight machine oil?

What about squeaks in the speed regulating device, where there is a
bushing on the vertical shaft?  Is there a good way to oil that point
without disassembly?  This is the assembly that seems to remind people
of the speed control of a snapper lawn mower.

Also, I need to find an extra spool for Wurlitzer 125 rolls and sources
for W125 rolls themselves.
