I have used their surplus computer = blowers for console wind when I could not run windlines. The output is quite high = so you will need to put a regulator on them. They are also NOT universal = motors so a simple sound enclosure will keep them quiet as long as ventilation is =   provided to keep the motor cool.   I hope this hypertext web address comes through the server for you:   <A HREF=3D"http://www.aaaim.com/cgi-local/shop991/shop.pl/SID=3D1132052281727/= page=3D60   CB.htm#ACB2100">Electronics Surplus - C and H Sales Company</A>   The one I use is the ACB9804 for $65.00 before shipping costs.   The only other matter is what rank you are using this blower on. If the = rank is a large wind draw like a scale 38 Open Diapason then it may not be sufficient. For low wind demand ranks like keen strings and reeds there = will be no problems.   Good luck,   Al Sefl

Their address and phone number are:   Player Piano Company, Inc. 704 East Douglas Wichita, Kansas 67202 (316) 263-3241   They put out a catalog that is full of intersting parts for player pianos, reed organs, band organs, etc. What you want is a #941 Blower Box. The blower unit put out 0-15" of wind pressure and has a 1.25" outlet. These units are designed for band organs. They must be used with a small resevoir or winker in order to work properly with a pipe organ. A friend of mine tried one of these without a resevoir on his band organ and it and didn't work. The cost of these units are about $150.00. That is pretty cheap when you consider the smallest Ventus blower is over $1000.00!   I hop this information helps.   Best Regards,   Steven Durham Portland, OR   -------Original Message-------   From: Residence Organ List Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2002 7:26:27 AM To: 'Residence Organ List' Subject: [Residence Organs] RE: [Residence Organs] small blowers     Does anyone have any ideas about some commonly available device that I could use to provide air for a single rank or pipes?

What are its specifications? Would this be enough wind pressure and CFM's to run a single rank at 2.5" WP?   Steven Durham     -------Original Message-------   From: Residence Organ List Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2002 4:50:36 PM To: DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org Subject: [Residence Organs] blowers   My favorite little blower, which appears to be identical to the one mentioned by Al, is sold by Surplus Center of Lincoln, NE for $18.99.

(back) Subject: Free console and chest From: "randy" <rnewman@shop.rutgers.edu> Date: Tue, 22 Oct 2002 23:50:27 -0400   I know this is short notice, but if anyone in the NJ area is interested in a free 2 manual and pedal console, please contact me. I am posting this for a non-organic person I know. I don't know the builder of the console but it was probably made in the early 20's and is made of solid oak with a mahogany or walnut interior. Includes bench and pedalboard. It is in generally decent condition but since it has been in storage since 1974, i'm sure it will need some work to get it back to into shape.   Here are the conditions. The console is currently in the basement of a home in central NJ right off rt 78. There are bilco doors that lead outdoors so getting it out shouldn't be too much trouble with a few people to help. The bad news is that it needs to be removed asap. The house is being sold and this has to go within the next week or so. If anyone can use it, speak up now. Otherwise it will end on the curb for bulk trash day next week.   There is also one 4 rank estey ventil chest as well (contained open diapason, dulciana, flute d'amore, and stopped diapason). I have no idea of the condition but i would guess it needs completely releathered or converted to D-E. In case anyone is interested, it is available for free from the same location as well.   -Randy     Steven Durham wrote:   >What type of a blower is this for $18.99?
