What if a mechanical instrument is unrestored or not playing?

For all  types of automatic musical instruments from disc music boxes to automata to orchestrions to calliopes, there are qualified restorers.  E-mail me or call me if you have questions regarding restorers.  You CAN also restore many items yourself!  Do not be intimidated.  For the most part you will find restoration work to be relaxing, enjoyable, and rewarding!    Many restoration projects are straight forward.  There are restoration books available that can help.  It also helps if you are mechanically intuitive and have basic wood working tools and metal working tools.   If you run into a complicated component, this can be sent to a professional restorer.   There is nothing like the thrill of “turning it on” for the first time!
