A breath of fresh air after having a digital. And yes, it does take time. I have many ranks to go yet, but am slowly progressing.   Fortunately my neighbors are all far enough away, so I shouldn't have any conflicts there.   Eric

Ciphers? yes, but they were soon tamed down and = now the instrument shakes the 2-story house nicely.   Rick

I still have some of that grin on my face and know you will have it to for some time also.   Now it will be hard to get as much done on the remaining tasks as you can sit and play a tune.   Thanks for sharing this with us and I am thrilled for your accomplishment.   Craig Elders   PS - During the 5 years to get my first pipe to play, neighbors came over very often to see what in the world I was doing. As the years of sawing, sanding, lacquering, sanding, etc. took place in my garage and out on my drive way. They would always ask "just how loud is this thing going to = be?" When they started coming over to hear "Eleanor" play, they were amazed at the sound inside and surprised at the sound outside. One of my neighbors who I thought might be a little skeptical at having a pipe organ across = the street, just came out one day and said, in front of a bunch of other neighbors, "Well, Craig is just going to have to keep all the windows up = so we all can hear it." I have knocks on the door every once-in-a-while with = a neighbor that brings a friend over to see what lives in my house. You = will meet a lot of new friends!   -----Original Message----- From: Gary Black [mailto:gblack@ocslink.com] Sent: Friday, August 11, 2000 6:20 PM To: Residence Organ List Subject: [Residence Organs] residence organ     Hi fellow organ builders. IT LIVES, finally after six long years! I have the 8' stopped diapason playing and the pedal 16'bourdon too. More to do but not that much I hope. The organ hasn't played since 1974 when it was removed from the Christian Church in Pontiac, IL. The Estey will do well at home here. Yes, you can hear it outside and this is all that is playing.

You are bissy with an Estey Residence player Pipeorgan???????? Would be nice. Yours is playing again since 1974. Well, I think I have an Estey residence player Pipeorgan which is already famous. I have to restore it completely for my client in Belgium, Europe. I'm also an pipeorganrestorer and builder, only the last 10 years hardly organ jobs, to bissy with the reedorgan and harmoniumrestoration. but, this one from Estey is unique. It is # 2088, 6D1 player organ, with the original spencer orgoblo and the original generator!!!!   It is build in 1922-23, brought in in the organchamber in a big house in = the suburb of NY, there was 1 year later a flood. The instrument was dismantled by Estey. Than the owner is suddenly dead. It was already 1925. After that the instrument is never been rebuild again. Can you imagine, this organ has played only 1 year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I have to restore it totally, everything has been waterdamaged, but = it is worth. My client is paying for it, it is my job and hobby. The console already takes 7 months.   Greetings   Louis Huivenaar Netherlands Harmonium and Reedorgan restorer Appraiser under Oath for Harmoniums and Reedorgans in Europe +31 75 684 4858 ( Tel/Fax Factory) +31 75 684 6552 ( Privat) +31 653 117 697 ( Mobil) Website: www.harmoniums.com     -----Oorspronkelijk bericht----- Van: DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org [mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org]Namens Gary Black Verzonden: zaterdag 12 augustus 2000 1:20 Aan: Residence Organ List Onderwerp: [Residence Organs] residence organ   Hi fellow organ builders.

(back) Subject: Electro-Pneumatic Chests From: "william baron" <bourdon_8@yahoo.com> Date: Mon, 14 Aug 2000 17:29:19 -0700 (PDT)   Hello Everyone!   Perhaps I should introduce myself. I am a new member of the list. I'm just finishing construction of my new house. I'm starting the installation of my pipe organ in a special room in the basement. I have a lot of parts but no working organ. My chests are electro-pneumatic. My first task is to rebuild these chests. There are no bottom boards, so I really have nothing for an example of how to build them. The pouches are intact. There is a channel that runs to the bottom for each pouch.   Can someone help me? I have all the magnets I need and I am quite capable of woodworking. I just need to know how to build this board and magnet thing. I am very "green" with this whole organ stuff. So please be patient.   Thank you, Bill   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo! Mail =96 Free email you can access from anywhere! http://mail.yahoo.com/
