Checking wood for flatness

    This is a ReoStyle device from an Autopiano player system. It's used for manually changing the volume of the music as the music is playing. And, even though the leather on the moveable board (not shown here) was changed, the device didn't work. Upon inspection, two problems were easily discovered. One, the holes in the wooden block are not air tight. This is a common problem with wood that's 100+ years old. Two, it was also found that the block itself isn't flat. So, even if the moveable board has new leather and all of the holes are air tight, the device still won't work properly. The corrective actions are to seal the air passageways with Phenoseal and re-surface the block.

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
