Calif. for the climate, but now the rest of the organ world is inaccessible.   Mac Hayes

I'm still looking for that 73+ note 4' gemshorn. Does anyone know of a Zeke Gordon-Franklin of Drake County, IN? He contacted the parish organist and me privately a week ago regarding some windchests and other inventory he wanted to sell for a price which to me seemed too good to be true. I have a strong feeling of "caveat emptor" about him because there is no information publicly posted about his work, his address/telephone number, or memberships in organ building = associations. He might have good and honest deals, but none of them so far offered are useful to me right now. If anyone knows of him, please respond because a friend is considering buying a four manual console from him for about $200 delivered to Detroit or a "M-C" windchest for a similarly incredibly low price. Fortunately for me, I realized this past week that I don't need to buy new pallets for the windchest since I could reface the Wicks vavles with felt backed leather glued on to the old leather. Since these are pre-1958 valves going into a non-Wicks chest, a small gasket or nipple has to be = made from a bored out dowel and glued to the top board for the valve to seat properly. The thickness of the gasket will be adjusted slightly for the added thickness of the valve.   Sincerely, Christopher Sabatowich   ----- Original Message ----- From: "John & Pat Ball" <johnrball@erols.com> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Saturday, April 27, 2002 9:30 PM Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Pipe Organ Parts for sale     > Hello, > Are you still interested in the pipe organ inventory? > John Ball >
