Hello everyone! I'm from Russia, Moscow. Sorry for my English;) On last week I bought this pianola 1912. But it is in very poor condition. The mice ate some the tubes and pneumatics (pneumatics of air motor, auto trackinf devise, etc.). Some player fingers broken. At Christmas holidays I start restoration pianola. I bought it for the museum cinetechnics which is already player piano Autopiano 65 notes (the restoration is almost finished).
Is there a scheme of a pianola?

Very nice! These are rare. This one was made in America for the German branch of Aeolian, it's tradename being "Choralion".

There is no standard schematic for them. The works are the same as any Aeolian double-valve internal player, and you can use the information in the Reblitz book for the internal rebuild. I can provide photos of other similar instruments if you need them.
