The trucking company = charge buy what you are sending, one of the cheapest is machinery and the one of the = most expensive is a musical instrument. Both treated about the same from what I have seen. When Fisk shipped the Meyerson organ it was with Bekins, you probably can guess why. If you are brave and you are shipping with OOPS or Fed up, the drivers = told me a secret. As far Ups goes any thing over 5' they hand carry throughout = the ware house, that length won't fit on there conveyer system. Also a wood box throws them for a loop. I sent smaller pipes to fellow = back to Iowa? I built a wooden box that wood fit a cardboard box and it was it arrived safely, but the box was only 4' long. Also there is a clothing box that is tall and long and it is perfect for wooden pipes, sent them through FedEx and they arrived in good shape. That my story, certain pipes are hard enough to find and then to ship over =   here to the left coast pooches the deal sometimes. One last thing, one organ man found shipping air freight for some items = was very cheap you just need some one on the other end to go and pick up your parts, and don't seal up the box, they will look inside for bombs!   Dennis    
(back) Subject: Curved Stoprails? From: "Frank Vanaman" <> Date: Tue, 22 Jul 2003 18:44:50 -0400   Hi all--   I'm looking at an expansion project for a console, and am curious to know if anyone's got any surplus curved stoprails. The 'average' depth I'm looking for would be such as to accommodate three manuals, more-or-less, and would be two rows tall. Preferably the rails should be thin enough to allow easy mounting of all-electric actions (e.g., Reisner c-3 or Syndyne...), or possibly have them in place already. Anyone got anything that's not in use?   I'm not looking for a whole console, really, (no, really!) just a two-row curved stoprail...   Something larger might be usable, but something smaller (e.g. a single rail) would probably not help.   Anyone?   All the best from Baltimore Frank Vanaman

Cheap veneer on the inside =3D and the face veneer of any exotic wood you desire. It would take =3D awhile, but could be a real fun project. Will

The did have a left over rail (from a three manual Wurli) a few years back but I have = since moved out of the area and don't know the status now. Their contact would = be found through the ATOS web site.   John Adams
