Rebuilding Aeolian Grand Player Organ Pneumatics
By Howard Wyman

In the Aeolian vacuum operated organ that I rebuilt, the pneumatics
were mostly intact and that is the way they were all folded: the ends
were folded in and the sides were folded out.  It appears that is the
way it was done at the factory.
