Hey folks….

I’m going to be making a jewelry box for my grand daughter and I was thinking of incorporation one of the Ballerina music box mechanisms in it but I’m having a helluva time trying to locate them.

Does anyone have any info on where I can buy them online?

You can get parts from here…
I found it looking for a ballerina but didn’t like what they had. If you see any other ballerinas out there let me know! Thanks.

Go to the project page John Hutchinson posted his ballerina box on. You’ll find he linked to the store that sells the movements if my memory is correct.
