Does there exist a reference which has a thorough list of pipe names and types, and has illustrations or pictures of all the types. It might be = even better if it also described the differences between major manufacturers, past and present, in the way they make the same type of pipe. I know most = of the major ones, but I still run into things with which I'm not at all familiar, and something like this could help. Thanks.   John Burns

I believe the two-volume set of The Art of Organ Building (Audsley) has = stop descriptions also. The book I would enjoy seeing is the one for $650.00 on organ building = since the Book of Genesis!   Rick

Near the end of the first, is a description of different stops and their tone. In the middle of the second, is the description of the construction of the various pipes.

Thanks. > > John Burns   You have to be a bit more serious than building a residence organ out of old parts to get the catalog from August Laukhuff in Weikersheim, = Deutchland, but if you know anyone who already has one, their pictures are very good.   The age old reference to which often refer is The Art of Organbuilding by George Ashdown Audsley. His descriptions of practices in vogue at the end of the 19th Century are excellent.   F.

Very cool- can't remember where I saw it. Wish I had a copy of it!   Rick

I used to have a Morton wood-bar harp that had a built-in pressure regulator to give a rudimentary volume control. Lowest was about 4-1/2", next step was about 8", last was regulator pressure.   I do know that Morton's toy counters had such huge pneumatics that they will function properly on anything above about 3".   At 08:53 AM 01/26/2000 -0600, you wrote: >I have an organ on 5" wind pressure. > >Should I decide to add an additional tuned percussion >from a theatre organ (presumably needing 10" - 15" pressure), >how would I accomplish it? > >Is it practical? > >Thanks! > >-Brian Graham >Estey Opus 2375 >II/18 HC > >DIYAPASON-L: a Discussion list for owners and builders of their own >Residence Pipe Organs. >HOMEPAGE : http://www.diyapason.pipechat.org >List: mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:owner-DIYAPASON@pipechat.org > > >   Regards,   Bob, in beautiful Lake County, California, USA   http://www.jps.net/rrloesch   Time flies whether you're having fun or not!   The best things in life aren't THINGS.

Connect the input of the new blower to the output from the original = blower.   As you probably know, used blowers this size in fractional horsepower = sizes are generally pretty cheap.   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Bernie Nordmann, St. Louis, MO -- Owner of a 3/13 Wurlitzer/Barton/Kimball/Dennison/whatever -- Registered Piano Technician, Piano Technicians Guild -- Full time computer consultant - Nordmann Consulting, Inc. -- Amateur radio operator, call sign KV0W -- Husband, father - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
