Someone sent me photos of an old machine that they are looking to identify and a couple people have guessed that it's from a player piano, so I thought I would post it here to see if anyone could verify this.



More photos of it can be seen here:

Looks to be the wind motor from a Boyd Pistonola type player system. Not many are found this way as they were manufactured in England. You can get more info if you like by doing a Google.
