If = someone would repay Mr. Gluck for his pipe trays and time, the owners = would refuse even a $1000 offer and allow it to be destroyed?   Somewhere in all this lies the real truth.   Keith

(back) Subject: Where to begin From: "Tommy Gray" <tgray@easthighlandbaptist.com> Date: Sat, 10 May 2003 20:52:31 -0500   Dear List, Recently I acquired a small Wicks pipe organ II/4. I have finally set it up in my home and now I want to get it working. My question is, where do I start? What is the first thing on which I should concentrate? This organ = is complete, a blower, wiring, relay boxes that are in great shape, but no winding materials. I posted a question a while back regarding the repair = of the cables from the console being cut into. The responses I received were great, THANKS! Any thoughts and suggestions would be great appreciated! Tommy Gray tgray@easthighlandbaptist.com
