I am specifically looking for a toe cone and toe hole opener, before I = attempt to revoice all these ranks. I would purchase them new but am trying to avoid = the higher costs. Please respond to my email address.   Thanks! -Drew Taylor

I need a few strips , a few mils thick x perhaps 1/4" wide x any length over 1".   Now that taxes are done, we're about ready to bite the bullet here & start building a room to house Wicks 4050, moved from Atlanta 2+ months ago.   Gene   *************************************************** * F.

What's so amazing to me is that this church has an offer of = $10,000 for an organ that's already packed up and in boxes awaiting = removal. It seems that, once an organ is dismantled, its value plummets. = Obviously this offer came from somebody who has heard the organ when it = was actually playing. Of course, figured into this would be the cost and = time involved in removing the organ and packing it up. After looking at = the placement of the organ in the balcony, it would be no amateur feat to = remove it.   Keith

I have a HUGE coil of Phosphor Bronze Strip, which I think is 1/2" wide, and I can cut them into any length you desire.   Let me know.   Faithfully,   G.A.   -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: 4/14 Kilgen theatre style headed for trash heap if not sold From: <Wuxuzusu@aol.com> Date: Wed, 09 Apr 2003 22:22:33 -0400   Greetings, This organ may soon be taken to the dump. A 4/14 Kilgen (one of only three of its type built by Kilgen) built for, = and once installed in the studio of WFIL in Philadelphia in 1937. Owner is = late on storage payments. It appears tp be complete in two storage lockers in Loveland, OH.   The off-again, on-again owner had wanted $10,000. Self Storage people = MIGHT sell it for the delinquent amount due on the storage unit; it would = not hurt to ask.   Interested?

(back) Subject: Overhead pipe clearance From: "Robert W. Taylor" <rtaylor@socket.net> Date: Wed, 9 Apr 2003 21:13:56 -0500   I would like comments from the group about close overhead clearance. Through a series of errors, I now find that my swell strings, 8' CC, are very close to the ceiling. These are all straight pipes, V.D.O., Aeoline, and Salicional with tuning scrolls.   The pipes actually fit, but what had been planned to be a 5 inch ceiling clearance is now much less. If the pipes can be tuned to picth, are there any other concerns? What is the effect of close ceiling clearance?   Bob Taylor

Maybe there better = be a little space in case of expansion/contraction with temperature changes.   Kelvin   >I would like comments from the group about close overhead clearance. >Through a series of errors, I now find that my swell strings, 8' CC, are >very close to the ceiling.
