Cracked Piano Frame in Seeburg Nickelodeon
By Herb Lindahl

Hello,  I have a client whose Seeburg upright nickelodeon recently had
a plate failure!  The entire treble section is affected.  The crack is
in the upper right (treble) corner of the plate.

I am still trying to determine the maker of the piano as it could be
one of five or six different brands.  I will know more in a day or two.
I was wondering if anyone had an old parts piano lying around that I
could maybe salvage a plate from.

The nickelodeon is a plain "A" roll machine with only a mandolin rail.
It has a full 88-note stack, which I found unusual.

Also, I have a Stafford built-up O roll machine in dreadful condition
for free if anyone needs any parts.
