It certainly wasn't = hide glue so it might have been dismissed out of hand :-) Referring to the reasonable prices of hide glue, I remember in the mid-80's the price of = hide glue went from about a buck a pound to around 8 dollars a pound in one = fell swoop. That sure wasn't reasonable :-) I have always been advised that = one of the main constituents of hide glue is horses hooves, boiled down for = their gelatin and collagen, maybe there werent a lot of hooves hanging around = that year. :-) Regards, and a Happy Safe Holiday Season to all. ---Roc LVRockafellow

Thank you so much! What I ended up doing was putting a piece of cardboard on the mouth of the pipe...so the pipe now speaks! I'm so happy :-)   A picture is available at http://www.angelfire.com/mn/organlcms/pipe.jpg   Thanks!!!! Paul Soulek   _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

Even if it hoots again.   From the picture, it appears that the pipe has sustained a severe "bash" = to the mouth area (and that someone then tried to fix it with vise-grips and = a chisel). It is HIGHLY likely that the lower lip, languid, and windway (at the least) are severely out of correct position, resulting in the = windsheet being FAR outside of its proper posistion. Your cardboard is probably now acting as the upper lip of the pipe, which is why it might make noise = again.   Needless to say, that unfortunate pipe needs help from someone that = *knows* what they're doing, if even *that* can fix it correctly. It is entirely possible that the pipe is (practically speaking) destroyed beyond reasonable repair. It also appears likely that the most severe damage to the pipe was caused NOT by the initial "bash" it sustained -- but by subsequent attempts to "fix" it.   Again, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news...   Tim Bovard Little Rock, AR   At 04:15 PM 12/22/01 -0600, you wrote: > >A picture is available at http://www.angelfire.com/mn/organlcms/pipe.jpg >
