I guess Estey wins the honor for this = beautifully constructed chest. I guess that explains the Clarinet with Haskelled pipes...on the outside of the pipe body.

(back) Subject: Automotive Toggle Switches From: "First Christian Church of Casey, Illinois" <kzrev@rr1.net> Date: Wed, 12 Feb 2003 09:37:57 -0600   Thanks for input on the idea of using automotive toggle switches for stop tabs. A few more thoughts:   1. Some of the newer switches don't have the loud click, nor do they need a vigorous force to cancel. It would be fairly easy to flip a handful off at once. In fact, I think it would be easier than the existing tabs which are large rockers. 2. Yes, the labels would be on the backboard, not on the toggle, but that's a workable system still used today by some builders. 3. I have thought of using the existing tabs on my console. I removed the electropneumatic combo action because I don't want any air in the console. But the combo action moved the stop tabs mechanically with no hard connection, and the stop tabs appear to be in good shape yet. 4. It would be possible to glue new stop labels (professionally made) over the old stop names where changes are needed. 5. One feature of the toggle switches I'm looking at is that the come in a choice of four different illuminated-when-on colors. This could color code the four families of organ sound; might look a bit theatrical, but that wouldn't bother me.   Keep the ideas coming.   Dennis Steckley   Ich liebe meine Katzen

You didn't mention if you are using the GIF files on the ATOS-SMGC webpage or the copy on Theatreorgans.com. I manage the ATOS site and I can resize the images if you don't have anything to print them. I believe you can get a free trial of PaintShopPro from the JASC website.
