From: "John Haskey" <johnh@haskey.net> Date: Thu, 23 May 2002 17:07:51 -0700 (PDT)     In January I proposed that this would be the 'Year of the Organ' for at least myself. I'm am pleased to report that construction has finally begun on the music room first discussed here almost two years ago. It's frightening because once it's finished I'll have to get serious about assembling the organ. So far I've had this easy excuse of no place to put it but that is changing (in a big way).   Some years back Larry Chace detailed the construction process of his remodel to accomodate the pipe chamber for his residence organ. I don't think I'll be able to update people in quite the same manner but I have taken a lot of pictures which I will post on a webpage. If anyone is interested in the gory details of construction in the People's Republic of Santa Cruz County drop me an email and I'll let you know when the pages are up. ---john.

I have one rank fully operational and it is wired directly to = the keyboard, nothing too complicated. Now that I am adding more ranks, I'm not quite sure how they -should- be wired in. = The manuals have ancient 1930s wiring that needs to be replaced.   Should I wire each note in each rank to its own respective contact? I = have 9 contacts per key in the manuals and am building only 6 ranks. If I do that, how would the couplers be wired?   I'm not using any computerized control systems, just old fashoned straight = wiring. Can somebody out there provide any wiring diagrams of a typical console or explinations that would help = before I start the rewiring? I have electrical experience so technical speak is not a problem.   Any help is much appreciated!   -Drew
