What a difference! No more bounce and tremoloish sound. Thanks for those that gave me insight to my problem I wrote about a little while back.   Got another question for you guys though. I need to build two small wood windlines but am not sure what kind of gasket material to use under the removable lid I want to add. Also the one will be attached to the side of my Static Reservoir to a large rectangular hole. I have a large piece of gasket leather that I thought about cutting strips of leather to use to seal with. But that would take a fair amount of cutting so I noticed that OSI sells 1/16" x 7/8" flat cork on a roll. This would be much easier to use. I know cork is used on flanges alot but would this work good for my wood to wood seals? Or should I use the leather? Thanks in advance for any advice.   Eric

From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2000 19:03:39 -0500   Hi Eric- On using cork, the Reuter I rebuilt has cork on the bottom = boards treated with talcum powder. Wicks does the same treatment. The oils in the talc keeps the cork supple. I can't verify a cork/rubber gasket material tho.   Personally, I prefer packing leather. Columbia Organ Leathers has = excellent stuff.   My Indian- head pennys and Deutchepfennigs' worth....   Rick

I don't know about talc keeping cork supple, I always thought it was to = keep it from sticking to the removable board. I've seen cork gaskets with and without talc, and can tell you that you DO want talc in there! Leather is =   also fine, and I agree with the recommendation of Columbia! They have both = an 800 # and a Web Site. I'd use some talc on the leather, also. Regards, Doug

From: <GRSCoLVR@aol.com> Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2000 23:15:11 EST   Hi Eric---- In the use you propose, I have been using the ribbon cork for near 40 = years with nary a problem. If I were doing it,,,I would glue the cork down on = the bottom side(s) of the box,,,or wind conductor,,,not the lid. On the flange =   seal, I would glue the cork to the wind conductor only,,,not the reservoir =   side. Glad to hear the organ is coming right along! Cheers, ---Roc
