Seek Diagram of 88/65-Note Themodist Upright Player
By Herb Lindahl

Hello MMD.  I am trying to find out how the spoolbox of the 88/65-note
Themodist Upright Player was arranged to accept both 88- and 65-note
rolls.  I am currently working on a Steinway from 1910, which appears
to have been altered to only accept 88-note rolls.

The dual tracker bar is still in place, as well as a tubing scheme
that goes through the switching manifold behind spoolbox.  Does anyone
have a picture, or description of this spoolbox as it was originally?
Thanks so much for your help.
