Seek Motor & Motor Mount from Ampico Grand
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  First, a big MMD thank you to all those who responded to
my previous posting.  However, after sending various pictures to my
customer, he wrote back and said that what he needs is the motor and
mount from an Ampico grand piano, not an upright.

Perhaps a little explanation is in order here.  He is going to use the
motor and mount for a special application that is not related directly
to player pianos, but the motor and mount must be the same is in the
original device.  Of course, that might tempt some to ask, "What other
device was made that uses these parts?"

I admit I was surprised to learn that the rotary pump and motor with
the grand piano mount was used in the record cutting business.  It's
a long story but it's true!
