Weber 88-note pianola restoration

This instrument was bought in poor condition as a "from the ground upwards" restoration project to hone the restorer's skills, as it was being disposed of in a local house-clearance. The blog picks up the project at the end of the restoration of the piano part of the instrument (essentially, the part of the instrument is that is just a straightforward piano for hand playing like any other piano) and focuses on the restoration of the player action (the system which reads the notes from the roll and plays them).
