Acrylic tracker bar
Wurlitzer Tracker Bar of Acrylic Plastic
by Bruce Miller (090111 MMDigest)

There have been several discussions on MMD about Wurlitzer band organ tracker bars.  Some years ago, I purchased a Wurlitzer 105 band organ at an auction of a carnival that had gone out of business.  The tracker bar on this Wurlitzer is very unique -- I have not met anyone who has ever seen one like it.

This tracker bar was machined out of a block of clear Plexiglas.  I have no idea who did the work, but it appears that they did quite a good job.  Although the organ needed help badly when purchased, it was sort-of playing, and the tracker bar, as far as I could tell, was working just as it should.  I have included a number of pictures of this unusual item.  I thought it might be interesting.
