(back) Subject: Chests and Wires From: "Paul Soulek" <pipeorganpaul@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 16 Dec 2001 15:05:33 -0600   Where is the best place to have the wires come out of the chest, so as to minimalize air leakage? A diagram is available at <http://www.angelfire.com/mn/organlcms/chest.html> Also, where is the best place to put the windline's entrance into the chest?   And, when making the chest, what is the best way to attach the different sides (top of chest, bottom, etc.) together, to minimalize leakage? Screws? Glue? Screws & glue? Should some felt be glued in there too? My dad thinks glue and screws.   Today I looked at a Reuter organ at a church where I play. The top board (which the chest magnets are attached to on the underside) kind of "fell" into the rest of the chest, with screws being put in on the side. I didn't see any glue or felt. But that was made in 1951, so I'm not sure if that's still how it's done.   I hope you can make sense of my questions.   Thanks for your help!

You may be able to buy the soap from a local stained glass shop. If not, there are stained glass businesses on the Web that sell the soap.   best regards,   Geoff Crimmins   > into one's skin: we use a special granulated heavy > metal hand cleaner > similar in concept to "GOJO" called "D-LEAD" which > everyone washes their > hands with after handling pipes; particularly before > they eat lunch or > go home for the day.

(back) Subject: Pipe Speech From: "Paul Soulek" <pipeorganpaul@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 16 Dec 2001 20:35:40 -0600   Before anyone answers my last question, I've got yet another. Sorry about that :-D   Anyway, a pipe in my rank doesn't work. All of the other pipes produce sound, but this pipe only produces a stream of air, with a very, very faint tone to it. The pipe is an Open Diapason and is 22". The pipe is at G pitch if that helps. I'm stumped...but that happens often.   Thanks!

I fixed a number of pipes that weren't speaking. In almost every case I pulled the upper lip out. Sometimes I also opened up the windway.   Kelvin   >Before anyone answers my last question, I've got yet another. Sorry >about that :-D > >Anyway, a pipe in my rank doesn't work.
