We order ours from Etna Plywood in Chicago. I think they have offices in other cities.   My father used to purchase it in Grand Rapids, MI from a large Lumberyard called Miller Zylstra. You just have to check. Unfortunately, many of these companies are wholesale only and sell only in "bunk" quantities.   Try a web search in Google and see what comes up.   Faithfully, -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

From: "Paul Arndt" <parndt@worldnet.att.net> Date: Sun, 04 Aug 2002 12:52:19 -0700   Strange as it may seem, I need to replace the rack board on a 1925 Wicks = DE wind chest. Of the five ranks on the chest four of the rack boards are intact, but the fifth was removed from the chest, subsequently suffered water damage and has totally delaminated... leaving me about six 1/16" = rack boards. At least I have the original for a pattern. Thanks for the = pointers for the plywood. Being a hobbyist definitely has its challenges in purchasing the right materials in small quantities.   At 08:56 AM 8/4/2002, you wrote: >Wicks makes plywood, you might call them and see who is the seller in = your >neighborhood.

Their other division is Aircraft parts which does sell Plywood - http://www.wicksaircraft.com/gotopage.php?page=3D7 - but I'm not sure that they carry the type of plywood that Richard was talking about.   David

Look thru the stack to find a nice sheet (but replace any sheets you move aside, please!). I *think* that's what Wicks was using then anyways.   Cut, drilled, sanded, and finished carefully, the better "common" plywoods =   should work quite well.   Tim Bovard Little Rock AR   At 12:52 PM 8/4/2002 -0700, you wrote: >Strange as it may seem, I need to replace the rack board on a 1925 Wicks >DE wind chest.

Taylor" <rtaylor@sockets.net> Date: Sun, 4 Aug 2002 18:41:38 -0500   For those of you that think your project is taking just a bit too long, consider the following gleaned from the paper-work I inherited with my = pipe organ.   The former owner of my organ contracted with the Deagan chime company to make an additional note, thus increasing the compass to 21 notes. Found in the paper-work was a picture of an organ tech installing the chime. On the back of the picture was the following, ".....the top chime whcih The Deagan Co. made special for me back in 1950. Today is the first day I = have heard this "F" sound." "February 20, 1988".   All the best to you other long term project people, and hoping that you = can do it quicker than 38 years.   Bob Taylor
