Player Piano Failed After Moving
By Joan Deegan

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

I have a 1923 Autopiano, recently professionally moved from Michigan to
a second home in St. George, Utah.  Upon arrival, we find that rolls
will reverse, but not advance.  We want to pursue a settlement from the
insurance company and have to find some way to get a repair estimate
(in this out of the way place.)  Do you have any suggestions?

 [ I imagine that experienced household movers are somewhat
 [ apprehensive about movement of complex mechanical items, especially
 [ antiques, since the chances are great that a mechanism somewhere
 [ inside will be loosened during the shipment.  The moving firm, or
 [ their insurance agent, is likely to take the position that the
 [ problem or its cause was pre-existing...   -- Robbie
