Newly re-leathered Swell pallet motors
The old leather had split and so the motor was no longer airtight. When a note is played, the motor uses air pressure to open a valve that allows wind into the pipe. If the motor doesn't work, the note can't sound. These are piecemeal repairs to notes that had failed. Eventually the whole of the Swell division needs to be refurbished.
