Wurlitzer Tracker Bar
Wurlitzer Tracker Bar of Solid Brass
by Christian Wittmann (090113 MMDigest)

Making a tracker bar of acrylic plastic is a good alternative solution if you have an accurate drill press and a compound table.  I made the tracker bar for my Wurlitzer 105 band organ the same way -- by drilling the holes -- but I used a piece of solid brass, which is more stable than plastic.

I first drilled the holes for the front row, then the holes for the hose connectors, and finally a row of holes at right angle to connect the holes of front and back side, which I then closed with small brass bolts.  I sent photos to show that this method works well too.

Best regards,
