(back) Subject: Shellac (or Vaseline?) From: <KriderSM@aol.com> Date: Mon, 21 Feb 2000 08:36:34 EST   I have used Vaseline for the same reasons. Vaseline does not dry out and = it is a good lubricant (no pun intended). Stan Krider   dutchorgan@svs.net suggests:     You might try applying tallow to both the packing leather AND the inside = of   the pipe to keep the leather supple and to afford easier movement for   tuning.

Of course!!   The Reuter I restored in Kentucky has 16-foot pedal pipes in both swells = at each side of the choir loft. What a massive sound- stereo bass!   Rick

(back) Subject: organ for sale in Baltimore From: "Kelvin Smith" <KelvinSmith@untraveledroad.com> Date: Mon, 21 Feb 2000 18:07:58 -0800   There is an organ for sale in Baltimore which appears to be 25 or more ranks. The seller is ready to sell at prices us home organ nuts can afford and you all ought to take a look at it. I made an offer on it, but the blower is three phase, so I had to back out.   (I am still looking for a single phase blower 2hp or more.)   Note that the unifications in the specification are just guesses. The seller is working on getting an accurate spec.   http://www.centeronchildren.com/organ/   Kelvin Smith
