Swank" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sat, 01 Nov 2003 13:53:58 -0500 Hi gang, I have a bunch (50) of coupler tabs and stop tabs that need to be re-inked, some black lettering and some red lettering. What's the best way for an amateur to do this? Is there a pen-like device that is applicable to this operation? What are the things to watch out for? Do I use regular red and black paint? Should I dilute it slightly? If I wipe the tabs off after applying paint, what kind of cloth is best? These are not historical tabs, so they need not be done at a professional shop. All help will be appreciated. Paul R. Swank Baltimore, MD.

The Early Music Shop here in Bradford had a 1 rank example in stock recently - finish looked quite impressive, and Lammermuir have a good reputation. EMS also do kits of a 1ft and 2ft Portative organ. Every Blessing Tony ----- Original Message ----- From: "Clyde R.
