Repairing Ragtime Automatic Music Co. Orchestrion
By Kim Bunker

Hi Everyone,  All I can say regarding any of Ragtime Automatic Music
Company's (R.A.M.) systems that were installed 12 years ago or older is
to replace all of the pneumatics, because all of the values are Perflex
and the original casing is aluminum.

Ken Calkins, the owner of Ragtime ( in
Ceres, California charges about $10.00 per pneumatic, or I think you'll
get packaged deals for buying all the replacements.  It is worth it to
save any hair-pulling problems you'll ever have regarding Ragtime
systems.  Good Luck.
