FS Free: Sterling Player Piano in Connecticut
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All, I received the following email today.  Please contact the owner
directly if interested.

I have a Sterling player piano that was made in Derby, CT, in the
1920s.  A few years ago I had the tubing and felt replaced, bellows
assemble rebuilt, player action, governor, etc restored and the piano
played many hours to our delight.  Suddenly, the original tracking
mechanism stopped forward motion, although it still rewinds.

I will be relocating to a smaller house and must part with my "saloon"
style player.  I don't wish to donate it to the landfill so I am
offering it to anyone for the cost of shipping.  I am sure it can be
made playable again.  The soundboard is excellent.  All keys have
ivory.  I also have numerous rolls of music dating way back.  I am
not sure of the exact dates but they are old.  Can you help me!
