Dual 88-Note Spoolbox Unit
by Dick Beery (MMD 990609)

The attached picture is of a dual spool box unit that I found.
I need help in identifying it and any resources for restoring advice.

It has two separate spool boxes with wind motors.  The tracker bars
appear to be normal 88-note bars.  There are no normal pneumatics; the
tracker bars are teed together and operate a series of switches of some
type.  There are only contact outputs.

The reason for asking about the unit is my desire to put a roll reader
on my theater organ project.  This unit appears to have possibilities,
but the 88 tracker bars present a problem.

Appreciate any info or advice from anyone.

Thanks
