Swank" <prswank@surfbest.net> 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.
