I need to mount the last three pipes horizontal butttttttt I still am short on room so I was wondering if I = could cut the toes off and then cap and add an inlet in the cap that I can put = flex pipe to. I will control the wind by a wood choke in the flex pipe. What do you think? Also the 16' reed is Austin boots and Wurlitezer Diaphone resonators. The resonators are heavy, at least the bottom six. What keeps these from = crushing the boots? I can see from building the support rack with hooks that one of the tubes going to the top of the boot is looking stressed maybe spliting.I have a place where I could lay these on there side and take the load off the = boot.? One more, the Bourdon chest I just finished is working strange. To get = some of the notes to sound I have to loosen the cap one the magnet. This is on = 3.5 or so of wind. Thank you for your time.
