They cost about $3.00 ea. As Larry said one could also use logic chips and or driver chips. As the rest of the relay is EM I think I would just use some simple relays. Can you read a schematic? If so I can draw you up a little schematic, scan it, and e-mail it to you.   Eric Sagmuller

If anybody here is not on that list and wants the results, I'll be glad to forward them personally.   I will also be refinishing my drawknob console soon, basing my choice of 'paint' on the answers I receive.   Mac     -------- Original Message -------- Subject: shellac a Hammond? Date: Thu, 16 Mar 2000 15:15:08 -0800 From: Mac Hayes <mach37@ptw.com>     I am contemplating the material I should use to refinish a Hammond C2, for my living room. I wondered about which list to ask - HamTech, Diyapason-L, EORG-L - and decided on this one.   I live in the desert so humidity is the least of my worries. There is a lot of fine airborne dust which would make a mirror finish very difficult, so I expect I will use a steel-wool-rubbed final finish. The biggest concern in my mind right now is what to use on the bench. I'd like to go with an oil finish like Watco Danish Oil or similar, primarily to avoid what has happened to the original hardshell finish that chipped and shows scratches. But, I also like shellac and wonder how that will hold up - compared to varnish - to the friction of trousers and occasional keys sliding across it.   I'm hoping for about 95 responses to this question.   Mac Hayes

Reason I ask is that at B-3 World in Orlando where I work in the refinishing shop, we use, for a semi-gloss finish, 2 parts of pre-catylized lacquer and 1 part blush-resistant reducer. The outcome is a very attractive and durable finish that comes out very smooth IF you use paste-wood filler before the sealer. Scuff down the sealer between 2 applications, apply finish, 'voila!'. I don't know how shellac would look or work, seeing as we've never tried it, and varnish is all Hammond ever used for a finish, but I thought i'd tell you how we've improvised on it at Keyboard Exchange aka. B-3 world.   Dave S.       --- Mac Hayes <mach37@ptw.com> wrote: > I sent this question to EORG-L.
