(back) Subject: WTB: Drawknobs From: "Frank Vanaman" <fvanaman@speakeasy.org> Date: Thu, 24 Jan 2002 19:36:19 -0500   Hello everyone--   Just a quick request: I'm looking to find some used drawknobs for a long-term, low-budget project.   I'd like to find the type that consist of a turned wood piece into which = is set a plastic, celluloid or ivory disc which bears the stop name. I could use either ones which orient the disc face perpendicular to the direction = of draw, or the type that position the disc at an oblique angle.   I could get by with 18. I'd rather have 20. That the inset discs are = damaged or missing is not an issue, as most likely they will all be replaced. Whether they come from reed organ or pipe organ parentage is not an issue, but they should be all alike in shape/contour. Variations in wood color/stain would be quite OK.   Anyone got some just sitting around?   Frank Vanaman Baltimore

I'm using those = things myself at home here. Mine are convex ivory plates set in hardwood heads = and shanks from about 1885-1915. What could they be swopped for?
