Also, glue a strip of pouch leather = on the inside seam- length to insure air-tightness.   Rick     ----- Original Message ----- From: Mac Hayes <mach37@ptw.com> To: Residence Organ List <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, February 23, 2000 8:21 AM Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Re: [Residence Organs] 12" windsleeve     > GRSCoLVR@aol.com wrote: > > > ...

From: "Randy Newman" <rnewman@dilligaff.rutgers.edu> Date: Wed, 23 Feb 2000 11:06:39 -0500 (EST)         I have an opportunity to buy a churchized wurlitzer style B. There are a few parts i want but the church says i must take all or nothing. The original style B was a 16-2 bourdon/concert flute, salicional, vox, trumpet. the trumpet was changed with a diapason. the console is a 2man church job. has the orig. chimes, swell shades, regulators, spencer blower, offset chests. the magnets on the main chest have been replaced a some point. There are also some non-wurlitzer ranks that were added also. Let me know if you are in the area (NE PA) and might be intersted in all or parts.   -Randy

(Might take some of it, but don't = tell my wife, she's already upset about the stuff I have).

However, I could not get to the two screws on the bottom of the tablet to try to remove them. It's good to = know that I wouldn't have been able to do so anyway. I already opted not to = take it apart to move the stop tablets around or to have them re-engraved. I decided, instead, to buy a full set of new stop tablets with a shorter length than the original, but otherwise the same size, then glue them over =   the originals. Buying new tabs is almost the same cost as re-engraving = old ones. When you get done with re-engraved tablets, the re-engraved tablets =   are thinner than the ones you didn't have to redo, so you almost have to = do them all over again anyway, even if some of them already say the right = stop name. This may appear to be a little tacky, I don't know because I = haven't done it yet, but they will all look the same and be the same thickness, albeit twice as thick as before.   Bart Kleineweber Chicago, IL prinzipal8@hotmail.com ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com
