  • Lynne, a mechanical engineer who helped when I got stuck.
  • Keith Morris, who purchased a similar game and helped compare our two games.
  • Mike Gumula, who also has an Evans Races, and helped source information.
  • John Tuttle, player piano restoration expert and pneumatic parts supplier.
  • John Osborn, restorer, who pushed me when things got tough.
  • Arthur Reblitz, who wrote the book on player piano restoration.  We never communicated but I could not have done it without his book.
