All lines being installed are new = and are PVC. What is the normal way of attaching the feeds to the reservoirs? All the connections are going to be new as well.   Should I transition to a flex at the connection? If not, should I leave a joint unglued near the reservoir?   Happy holidays to all.   Bob Taylor       DIYAPASON-L: a Discussion list for owners and builders of their own Residence Pipe Organs.

I pity the ones that have acoustics like a bedroom. I was originally going to try and incorporate a digital sound processor, miking the pipes, for some reverb when the room was dead. But now that the room has a .5 -1 sec. echo I don't even desire =   to try it. Now if I could just get the rest of the 17 ranks of pipes installed in addition to the three I have playing. Oh well, all in it's = time.   Eric

They aren't that expensive =   and make an easy way of disconnecting, plus allow a little misalignment.

That was if you need to pull the bottom board all you need to do is remove one of the hose clamps to disconnect the windline. All of the connections can then be glued together and if there is a slight misalignment the rubber cloth sleeve with take care of that problem.   i may have some photos showing how we do it. If I can find one i will send it off to you privately.   Happy Holidays   David  
(back) Subject: Visit to Milwaukee From: <Pfdad@aol.com> Date: Mon, 16 Dec 2002 22:53:02 EST   Hello List: My name is Phil Fentress with a new interest in pipe organs. This interest came about, I think, from listening to 'Pipedreams' too long. I also discovered a 1/3 portative tracker at the chapel in my church. The organist has shown me the internals of this organ as well as the 30 minute =   tour of the 1980 Wicks 2MP/56 main instrument and I was hooked on having = one but space is currently a limitation. My intention is to have a home organ of some type. I have been perusing =   the archives of this list as well as other sources on the internet = relating to pipe organs. I have also picked up some parts from eBay to see what = they look like and what makes them tick, etc. I have read The Organ by Sumner = and am currently reading Audsley. I am a mechanical engineer by trade (with 3 =   kids) and have a technical interest in the workings of these machines. I want to learn to play one but also feel that a home organ might help the = kids take a stronger interest in music. I will be in Milwaukee for a couple of weeks at Christmas and would like = to talk or perhaps visit with other list members in that area who have any = parts or working organs at home (or work!) I have a lot of questions about the sizing, sound & nomenclature of pipes and how all these darn reservoirs = and valves are supposed to be connected, among other things. If anyone up = there is interested and has a little time, please respond back privately. My other hobbies include restoring a 1942 Stearman biplane and a 1952 Willys M38 army jeep. These are long term hobbies but I can probably = squeeze in a pipe organ (that ought to get a rise out of the group!)   Thanks,   Phil Fentress Memphis TN
