From: "Kilgen" <kilgen@wi.rr.com> Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2003 13:06:31 -0600   Hello Group;   It has recently come to my realization that I cannot continue on with the folly of building this pipe organ so considering a recent occurrence which took place today, I have decided to kill the project.   In my introductory post explaining my project, I listed all of the parts I was using in the project. They are all now available and are for sale with the exception of the three rank Wurlitzer chest and the two ranks of salicionals.   If anyone on this list is interested in my parts, please email me = privately to:   kilgen@wi.rr.com   Thanks.   Gary K.

I hope nothing = serious has forced you wo give up, but do condider "shelving it" till you can = learn more about organs. Possibly from one of the local organ clubs.   There are plenty of folks around to answer your questions.   Michael

I've bought = and sold any number of items before deciding on what to use. For me, = the planning (dreaming?) of the final outcome (which changes about = monthly) is so much of the fun. However, what is ultimately best for = you - is what you should do. The regrets will come later! Will

Will     I don't know about that, Will...I sold off my last Hubbard Harpsichord kit unfinished and have never regretted it! I get carried away every so often wanting to rescue a harpsichord in need of TLC...but so far I have been able to resist the urge.   noel jones      
(back) Subject: Pipe makers From: "wcjharrisville" <wcjharrisville@webryders.net> Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2003 20:31:35 -0500   I'm getting ready to have the dummy, polished zinc pipes made for my = organ casework - fashoned after the "swallows nest" organ in the = Cathedral of Metz in france. I am wondering if I should have them made = here or overseas. I note that the Jerome B. Meyer Organ Pipe Company is = still in business. Can anyone supply me with their address? Will  
(back) Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Pipe makers From: "Larry Chace" <RLC1@etnainstruments.com> Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2003 22:41:11 -0500   Will asked for an address for the Jerome B. Meyer Company. Based on the entry in Dave Junchen's "volume 2" and a listing in the AIO membership roster, here is a guess:   Jerome B. Meyer & Sons, Inc. 2339 S. Austin Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53207 414-744-2741   (The street number and last 4 digits of the telephone number match in = those two sources, and so I'm guessing that the above data is possibly correct.)   Rummaging through the AIO roster and their most recent convention booklet, I see these names of other USA pipemakers:   Organ Supply in Pennsylvania (www.organsupply.com).   A.R. Schopp's Sons in Ohio (pipeshop@alliancelink.com).   Eastern Organ Pipes in Maryland(eopipes@surfree.com).   Stephen Russell in Vermont (russorg@adelphia.net) (they also have a web site, but I can't recall the URL at present; google on "Russell Organs Ithaca" and I think you'll find it, along with a description of a new instrument for Ithaca, NY).   I'm assuming, but do not know for certain, that all of these firms make polished zinc facade pipes.   Larry Chace
