I got a private email asking me if this was only one side or both, and I replied "both," because if one column moves up that amount, the other would necessarily move down the same amount (given the tube was equal diameter throughout). It never occurred to me to SUM the = two numbers--how interesting!   So, now I understand--the pressure in a wind chest is measured as "the doubled value of displacement of a water column." Cool--that means my = blower is really creating 3.5" pressure, more like what I was expecting...   This is a GREAT list!

Say about 6 feet. Tywrap it around a old yardstick = with the 2 legs at the up side of the measuring lines. Fill the tube with = water, enough to get it to some inch marking exactly preferably. make some kind = of cork adapter for the other end of the tube to fit it to the windchest = hole. With note valve open, read the summation of the inches on the measuring device,,,,ie, 3 inches up and 3 inches depressed, =3D6 inch wind. The size = of the tubing makes no difference at all,,,its the weight of the water that does the measuring. Hope this helps, ---Roc

(back) Subject: Bouncing reservior From: "Eric Sagmuller" <ess4@psu.edu> Date: Sat, 29 Jan 2000 20:05:07 -0800   Hi all,   Speaking of reservoirs and the different kinds of valves used I have a problem with a bouncing or oscillating one. I don't know what you'd call the valve it has in it, but it is basically a flapper on the intake that closes against, or (fights against) the incoming air from the blower to regulate the reservoir pressure. This reservior is from an Estey. I am running a 1/2 HP Meidinger blower through about 4' of 8" orgaflex to it. I have only weights on it to regulate the pressure as most of the compass springs were missing. I have some nice Moller reservoirs from Rich Schneider I plan to use in the future, once I releather them, that use curtain valves. But for now I'm using the Estey one so I can have = something to play. The problem is that whenever I play a bass note just in the 8' range, along with some treble notes, the reservoir starts a very annoying bounce or oscillation. Needless to say the instrument becomes very = annoying to play. It sounds like a sick tremulant.   Anybody have any ideas on a quick fix for this? I know there are some kind of stabilizers available. Maybe springs would do a better job than = weights. The blower came with the 8" orgaflex attached to it so I just used it that way. It actually only has a 4" outlet. When the reservior is inflated it = is very easy to make it bounce by hand.   Thanks, Eric

This will then replace the Meidinger. Maybe this alone will fix the problem due to less turbulance. I plan to = use a Static reservoir with a baffle and then a baffle at the other end of the line. It was also mentioned to me that I may need another reservoir along with the baffle, at the far end before my chest regulators. Is this necessary? I'll be running 4.5 - 5" wind up to the chamber then the chest reg. will be set at 3".   Eric   >Speaking of reservoirs and the different kinds of valves used I have a problem with a bouncing or oscillating one.

The weights have inertia. Springs don't. So when you thump the top of the reservoir, or a sudden demand of wind does the same thing, the inertia of the weights along with the storage capacity of the reservoir form a classic resonant circuit, in this case an overdamped circuit which decays to nothing after a while.   You also know the answer!   Regards. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
