WOW!!! It sings again..... after 147 years.It has a sweet spot around FCC so it is tuned there. I still need to do detail work and document it.

Thank you all! What a true blessing to be able to set this up for display and research this piece. I found the relationship between owners family line and the maker Jacob Meadors. His first cousin married into the owners line in 1866! To much fun.
