Re: I want my pedals back!
Hi All, Claudine Jones sent me a web address which leads to a picture
of the lower portion of her player piano. While I can't be positive
about whether or not the vacuum pump has the one-way flap valve found
on all of the later systems manufactured by the Player Piano Company,
the picture clearly shows the dual-stage speed controller that is a
part of the electrification kit. See: http://dotcomdetox.com/piano
Also, since Claudine said that the pedals did create enough vacuum
to run the air motor in Rewind, I admit that I "assumed" that the
flap valve was operational.
