(back) Subject: Cleaning chimes/Paint pipes From: "Robert W. Taylor" <rtaylor@sockets.net> Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2002 09:41:24 -0600   Hi All,   I receive the list in digest form, so my replies may be out of sequence. Larry Wheelock wanted to know about cleaning flat black paint from his chimes....After his post, I saw no direct answer, but rather the = discussion quickly went off in a new direction.   Since Larry seems to have eliminated latex paint, I assume that the paint is either lacquer or oil based. Try using lacquer thinner to remove both. Once the paint is removed, the chimes may need to be polished and relacquered if they had a clear lacquer coating.   When winding by using PVC, I have seen many installations, mostly theatre, that have left the PVC pipe white. The printing has been removed of course. The ultimate show place, the Sanfilippo 5/80 installation, has painted all PVC a nice brown. This blends well with the hardwood floors. The clear finished chests, framing, and rackboards really look sharp. White PVC would have detracted from that look, especially the main truck, which I think is 36 or 40 inch PVC leading from the 50hp blower.   On my own installation, I plan on painting the PVC within the chambers and open areas. The parts below the chamber floor and in the blower room will be left unpainted. I haven't decided which color will work best, as all the Aeolian chests are that ghastly yellow.   Bob Taylor      
(back) Subject: Pipe Spacing From: "Paul Soulek" <pipeorganpaul@yahoo.com> Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2002 20:18:01 -0600   I am getting to the stage of building the chest for my 61-note 4' Open Diapason rank. What is the proper spacing to have between pipes? Would 1 inch be a good guide? When I say 1 inch between pipes, that means from the outside of the pipe-- 1 inch between one pipe and the next, no matter how wide or slim the pipes are. Any tips?   Thank you!

The rest is leaving enough room so that you can reach the tuning slides comfortably.   Faithfully, Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc. Pipe Organ Builders 41-43 Johnston St./P.O.
