He's asking a very modest price!   Dennis Steckley ----- Original Message ----- 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!)

That would lend a whole new meaning to "Barnstorming =   pipe organist"....     ---------------------------------------------------------------------------= - Tom Dimock ---- Cornell University ---- tad1@cornell.edu "There go my people.

Also If you are interested we live about 75 miles west of Milwaukee in Beloit, Wi, you could drive over and see our 2/16 Mostly Barton Theatre Organ, with all the bells and whistles. you could look it over to your hearts content and play it all that want. -Just let us know if you are coming over.
