I have a 1925 Robert Morton console that had spent a considerable number of years in storage, and had been exposed to some amounts of heat and humidity. The contacts were filthy and oxidized. = Some months ago I did a careful manual cleaning of the contacts with 600 grit wet/dry paper (this took a LONG time), and then applied CAIG's "R5 Power Booster" to the contacts with a small brush. I used about one-half of the tiny tube I bought (pricey, but worth it). The contacts have been about 95% reliable ever since, and I'm very pleased. We use this stuff at the shop as well, and it has solved a good many contact problems on the job. . = ..   Greg Rister Pipe Organ Craftsmen Pomona, California       > [Original Message] > From: <lcollins@premiermeansbusiness.com> > To: <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> > Date: 03/18/2003 4:07:05 PM > Subject: [Residence Organs] contact cleaning > > Hi DIYapason gang, > > I have used the Caig Labs products with great results for contact = cleaning > for many years now.

Taylor" <rtaylor@socket.net> Date: Wed, 19 Mar 2003 09:05:34 -0600   Hi List,   I have come up short three pipe hooks and would like to find the exact replacements. The hooks that I seek are for an Aeolian and are made of cast iron.   If anyone has some that they would be willing to sell, please get in = touch.   Bob Taylor

Bob Taylor,   I have SCADS of different kinds of pipe hooks. If you can send me a JPG image of one, I'll see how close I can come to matching up to what you're needing. Faithfully,   G.
