Seek Pratt-Read 10-point Roll Drive Motor
By Jeffrey R. Wood

I am in need of a pneumatic roll drive motor for a Pratt-Read Model A
player action.  This is a 10-point motor having five double pneumatics
and five slide valves.  It should be in good restorable condition
(steel parts not badly rusted).

If I am unable to find one, I would settle for the more common 6-point
motor by the same maker.  On a 6-point motor, the pneumatics are
significantly wider, so the air capacity and width are presumably the
same, making both motor types interchangeable.  A picture of the exact
motor I need can be emailed on request.

If it would help someone, I do have other motors available for trade
(Standard, Simplex, etc.)  Many thanks for looking.
