It may be conicle, maybe not. Mine was conicle- from = 12 inches (blower) down to 10 inches (main wind line). My sleeve is about 12 inches long.   If the blower and main windline are close enough together, span and wrap rubber cloth around both pipe-ends and secure temporarliy with masking = tape to get your start. Glue the seam liberally with PVE glue and let dry. Finally, use radiator clamps on each end for final securing. If you want = to be brave and daring, you may want to sew the seam besides gluing.   It's like putting a rubber 'boot' on plumbing.   Rick

We still use it for roadbed between the plywood and the track, makes it nice and quiet.   Jimmy

Since the building in which my organ is currently set up is too small=3D20 to accomodate these massive sound emittors, they have been stored until = =3D a new residence for the organ could be built (famous last words). =3D Well...the 'new' organ building is still but a twinkle in the CAD program, and the storage facility is being gutted, = =3D so the pipes must go! I'm open to offers which are made in a timely manner (ie ASAP). The rank in question is a 30-pipe = =3D pedal 16' open wood from an late 19th- or early 20th-century Odell tracker which was in a church in Harlem, =3D NYC. The pipes are most likely tulip poplar and stained black. I have =3D the offset chest for the bottom 6 pipes only. the walls of the CCC pipe are 1 1/4" thick and the = =3D cut up is 3 11/16" Internal dimensions are 13 1/4" by 11 7/8". Two pipes = =3D have recent impact cracks (not stress cracks from internal flaws in the = =3D wood). There is also a large swell chamber from the same organ; 7'9" x =3D 7' x 60 1/2" (HxWxD). They are located in Poughkeepsie, NY. I need an =3D answer fast, or else I'll try to move them to Canada. A perfect addition for the LARGE residence...   best wishes, Robert Pelletier (450)294-3377 fax; (450)294-9992   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0007_01C070B0.F8A08BC0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3DContent-Type content=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Diso-8859-1"> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 5.50.4611.1300" name=3D3DGENERATOR> <STYLE></STYLE> </HEAD> <BODY bgColor=3D3D#ffffff> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>greetings to the list,</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>As a part of my DIY residence 'pipedream', I = have=3D20 acquired</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>some years back a pedal rank of 16' open woods. =3D Since=3D20 the</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>building in which my organ is currently set up is = =3D too small=3D20 </FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>to accomodate these massive sound emittors, they =3D have been=3D20 stored until a new residence for the organ could be built (famous last =3D words).=3D20 Well...the 'new' organ building is still but</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>a twinkle in the CAD program, and the storage =3D facility is=3D20 being gutted, so the pipes must go!
