It is obvious, in some cases the pipe has to be = that way. This chest is 3' X 6' with 360 pipes on it. A very nice compact layout.   Russ Doering Sunnyvale,CA

In the particular case, the mouths had to be pointed this way or that so as to avoid being too close to something else. I had to figure all of that out by trial and error until I realized that = the answer key was on the rackboard.   Jon Fick     > > > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > > Subject: Pipe mouth direction > From: "Robert W.

Taylor" <rtaylor@socket.net> Date: Sat, 18 Jan 2003 08:07:55 -0600   When discussing the task of painting the toe boards, and keeping the paint out of the toe holes, I mentioned my Mixture V, Dolce Cornet, with its 305 pipe holes. Quickly, Larry Chace suspected my number were wrong and dropped a note. He, of course, was correct. The mixture (pipes) is still packed, six trays down from the top, so I didn't want to look at the = pipes!   I cleverly counted the holes in the toe board, and proved Larry correct. The mixture contains 275 pipes, not 305. I feel much better now, knowing that there are 30 fewer pipes to deal with.   Bob Taylor

Taylor" <rtaylor@socket.net> Date: Sat, 18 Jan 2003 07:57:50 -0600   In my previous inquiry, I perhaps did not clearly describe the "notch" in the rack board holes that lead me to ask if the notch indicated mouth direction.   The rack board holes are perfectly round. The notch is on the top surface of the rack board, at the hole perimeter, and is a "V" shaped nick. Most nicks are on the front of the hole, facing the swell shutters.   I think that perhaps I misled some to think that the holes had a notch. = Not so.   Thanks for the responses   Bob Taylor

Although most of the pipes face in the normal direction, in several instances, the pipes are fit rather tightly and are = in odd locations. Those pipes have notches in the rack holes to indicate the direction the mouth is to face. I know this to be a fact because those = pipes are also mitered, and if you try to turn them in another direction, the mitered section of the pipes will hit an ajoining pipe. They only fit if = the mouth faces the notch direction.   Tom
