I havent seen = this list until now ( you mentioned you had offered it before) but , where are you located? If you are in the new england area I could come = after the stuff with a pickup truck, otherwise I suspect shipping would be a big problem ( or expense!) Just in case, I was interested in some info on the following items: One of the 8' open diapasons, = preferably in good enuf condition to be display pipes; the mixture III with all 3 ranks included, the Meidinger blower ( what voltage/phase is it wired for?) ; and, what size inlet and outlet does the 32x32 reservoir(s) have?

That might = be a good project for me and my son - who always wants to run the soldering = iron.   Since my relays each have 10 contacts (only 3 are used in one panel and 5 = on the other) I had considered that, while I was at it, going ahead and = wiring each contact to a punch down block - or some other kind of junction. Then = I would wire the pitman chest from one junction, and use the others for the gang switches going to the unified rank. That way, when I add another = chest, I will simply tap into the panel using an available junction strip instead = of having to try to wire up and additional 1 or 2 fingers on each of 61 = relays.   Regarding the punch down blocks, has anyone used any that are a little = more compact than the 64 type? My phone system at the office has one that is = much smaller, still 50 contacts though.   Thanks, Keith   --part1_99.35c0b4d7.2bbfa026_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <HTML><FONT FACE=3D3Darial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=3D3D2 = FAMILY=3D3D"SANSSERIF" FACE=3D =3D3D"Arial" LANG=3D3D"0">Fellow amateurs - and any professional who = doesn't min=3D d giving free advice:<BR> <BR> Is there an easy way to attach the tiny wires to relays or to the bus pins = o=3D f the gang switches?<BR> <BR> A friend at our local phone company gave me 2 of the 64 Punch down blocks = (5=3D 0 position) and about 30 ft. of prewired cable.<BR> <BR> I saw a website that showed some kind of relays where it appeared the the = wi=3D res were attached using plastic connectors that appeared to hold several = wir=3D es in a row - like smaller versions of the connectors you find on wiring = har=3D nesses in your car.<BR> <BR> I notice on one of my relay panels that the tiny wires appear to be = soldered=3D , on the other, they appear to be just wrapped a few times.<BR> <BR> Since it appears, too, that both relay panels are wired using the cloth = cove=3D red angel hair pasta, they will both have to be rewired.&nbsp; That might = be=3D a good project for me and my son - who always wants to run the soldering = ir=3D on.<BR> <BR> Since my relays each have 10 contacts&nbsp; (only 3 are used in one panel = an=3D d 5 on the other) I had considered that, while I was at it, going ahead = and=3D20=3D wiring each contact to a punch down block - or some other kind of = junction.&=3D nbsp; Then I would wire the pitman chest from one junction, and use the = othe=3D rs for the gang switches going to the unified rank.&nbsp; That way, when I = a=3D dd another chest, I will simply tap into the panel using an available = juncti=3D on strip instead of having to try to wire up and additional 1 or 2 fingers = o=3D n each of 61 relays.<BR> <BR> Regarding the punch down blocks, has anyone used any that are a little = more=3D20=3D compact than the 64 type?&nbsp; My phone system at the office has one that = i=3D s much smaller, still 50 contacts though.<BR> <BR> Thanks,<BR> Keith</FONT></HTML>   --part1_99.35c0b4d7.2bbfa026_boundary--
