I envision this ring to be a separate unit (from the valve) that attaches to the underside of the toeboard. That's why I was wondering if they are needed or not.   Eric     >Hi Eric- Klann builds their d-e valves as a complete unit: drill two = holes >and slap it up there. > >Rick > > >----- Original Message ----- >From: Eric Sagmuller <ess4@psu.edu> >To: Residence Organ List <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> >Sent: Tuesday, October 10, 2000 6:59 AM >Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Re: How is your project going?, chest = valves > > > > Do the Klann's need to use the rings you are talking about, or are > > they an option?

Be = sure the hinge works freely. I had to replace many hinge pins on an organ about = 30 years ago because the plastic in the hinge shrunk and created ciphers = galore because the valve would hang open. Otherwise I like them.   John Adams

I feel compelled to follow example = and report my progress (or lack thereof).   The blue-prints are proceeding for my project with the really olde = pipes, and I may have located the church they came from. I'm still waiting for = their reply. The console designs are almost finished. I've decided to use the = flat pedalboard arrangement. (I like these, not sure why). Still figuring out the mixture configurations, it's tough when 422 = different mixture pipes were thrown into a box labeled "pipes." (Very descriptive, = isn't it?) But, we'll get to the bottom of it. One thing I like is that these pipes are devoid of tuning slides. It's = all cone or scroll or roll tuning. I like this a lot. The refinishing of the swell oboes is very nice, I'm quite pleased with = the revoicing and the sound. They're nice and dark and rich. Great solo stop. = I'm starting the clarinets soon. I'm still trying to shine up the octave and open facades. Anybody have = any ideas of a good polish available that won't kill my cat with fumes? Brasso =   works, but still there are a few tough corrosive spots. The doppleflutes are sounding good, so are the concert flutes. Melodias = are nice, and the concert flute celestes are sweet. (Can you tell I'm partial = to the wood pipes?) I'm looking for a good scale and measurements for 16' = Bourdon or Lieblich for pedals (8' stopped). If anybody has good plans or scale, = let me know. I have some ideas, but if somebody has a really good one already let = me know what you have for CC and the halving pipe. Best of luck, hope projects are going "great!" Mine is "swell!" (Sorry, = it's early.) I'll keep ye posted!   Chris Malocheski, MTS Organbuilding   PS: Here is latest stoplist.   MTS Organ Stoplist   Swell: Stopped Diapason 8' (Metal) Salicional 8' Mixture III Swell Flute 4' (Metal facade) Swell Oboe 8' Tremulant (OSI) Swell to Swell 4' Swell to Swell 16' Swell Unison Seperation       Great: Hymnal Diapason 8' Roman Diapason 8' Doppelflute 8' Dulciana 8' Unda Maris 8' Octave 4' Harmonic Flute 4' Mixture IV Tremulant (Moller) Swell to Great 4 Swell to Great 8 Swell to Great 16 Great to Great 4 Great to Great 16 Great Unison Seperation Choir to Great 4 Choir to Great 8 Choir to Great 16         Choir: Clarinet 8' Concert Flute 8' Concert Fruit 8' Celeste Fugara 8' Dulciana 8' Gamba 8' Tremulant (Moller) Swell to Choir 4 Swell to Choir 8 Swell to Choir 16 Choir to Choir 4 Choir to Choir 16 Choir Unison Seperation       Pedal: Violone 8' Counter Bass 8' The Majestic Moose 8' Swell to Pedal 2 Swell to Pedal 4 Swell to Pedal 8 Great to Pedal 4 Great to Pedal 8 Choir to Pedal 2 Choir to Pedal 4 Choir to Pedal 8 Pedal to Pedal 4

From: "Kelvin Smith" <KelvinSmith@untraveledroad.com> Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 12:48:51 -0600   Hello all,   I started a couple months ago installing my new (used) 4m drawknob = console. That process is completed now, at least in that the old console is gone = and the new console does all that it ever did and more. I have all the old ranks playing, plus one additional flute for the great. There are 30 ranks playing, including pedal 8 and 4' diapason which I have to reduce the pressure on before they will be usable. On the old console the swell = shades worked backward and with the computerized system in the new console, I was able to make these work the right way. I also hooked up the crescendo = pedal and the sforzando toe stud.   The combination action doesn't work because I don't have it winded yet. I have to releather the regulator for the console. I have some wiring to do for it also. I have a 3 rank mixture which is waiting for nothing except a couple 3" elbows to get it winded, and I haven't gotten to this. Only = about half of my choir shades are working. I have a16' tuba which I have to figure out how to get into operation and a couple other ranks. There is also a Vox waiting on windlines.   I have been practising the Bach and the Widor for the upcoming "spectacular" in our area. It certainly rattles the rafters. I need desperately to do a bunch of voicing work. Most of the soft stops are sounding very nice. But the gt 4' octave is bright enough to cover for a = 2' and 2 2/3' serves as my mixture. When I want it loud, they do quite = nicely, but there are some missing increments in the middle.   Kelvin

A Rev. Alec Smith has built a beast in his house to consist = of a 2 manual 2-rows str8 stoptab organ with exposed pipework. Ranks include Open Diap., Stopt Diap., Salicional and Quint. Looks to be a good read.   Rick
