It sounds like you are extremely close to victory: the manual is working, the wind is working, = at least 2/3 of your pipes are working; you're nearly there! More help may = be available from whatever organ service or builders may be in your area, = although at a price. Do consider that it may be only a few hours of time for an experienced troubleshooter to find the main problems. I'm sorry to butt in; if you decide to sell, I hope you get a good = price.

From: "rnewman" <rnewman@shop.rutgers.edu> Date: Tue, 6 May 2003 15:49:52 -0400   Hi list,   Before I shell out the $100+ dollars per pipe to have replacements made for my Moller 8' Trumpet rank, I thought i'd ask if anyone might have a broken rank of trumpet pipes that could possibly help me find 3 pipes.   These are 1929 MP Moller Trumpet pipes, originally on the great division. The trebles are not harmonic and it originally played on 5" wind pressure. I have some pictures of the rest of the rank on my website:   http://remus.rutgers.edu/~rnewman/trumpet.html       The pipes I am missing are:   2' F and 1' E and G#   Any help would be greatly appreciated.   -Randy
