I have many damaged rolls that I would like to reproduce. According
to everything that I have seen it would cost me as much, if not more,
to buy a new roll, if QRS has it, as it would to have it reproduced.
I am looking for design blueprints or a ready-built device that I could
use to copy my damaged rolls onto new paper. Is there any such beast
or do I need to spend some time thinking about my problem and come up
with my own solution?
I would love to be able to offer a roll reproduction service here in
the Midwest to those people who have player pianos but their piano
rolls are wearing out.
