Rebuilding Autopiano Valves
By David Zitzmann

In 1911 my great-grandmother bought my great-grandfather a Mehlin &
Sons player with matching bench for their 40th wedding anniversary.
It's been in our family ever since.  It was rebuilt once in the late
1950s and needs work again.  I recovered everything, even made some
new boards for the pneumatics; all that is left is the valves.  It's
an Autopiano.  I'm looking for the correct type and thickness leather
for the primary and secondary valves.
