Rebuilding Leather Tire Friction Drive
By Bill Masterman

Hello,  Our local fairgrounds Wurlitzer 146 is in trouble.  The
leather, which appears original, is badly in need of replacement on
the rewind tire.  It is the larger rewind tire, used on the single
spool frame, where the leather is at a beveled angle.

I have never releathered one of these, and don't really care to.
Anyone out there done one of these before, and would like to put some
extra cash in their pocket?  I can remove the part and mail it off in
the next week or two.

Thanks much
