Prices go down to ~$8 depending on supplier. Your local Graybar or other electric supply house will also have them. Phone equipement is more common that typically throught. Even Home Depot = carries phone test equipment and tools (but not 66 blocks yet.)   MPJA is http://www.mpja.com/productview.asp?product=3D7186+TT   Jon Fick Westford, Vermont     ----- Original Message ----- From: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, January 30, 2004 12:29 AM Subject: DIYAPASON-L Digest #948 - 01/29/04     > DIYAPASON-L Digest #948 - Thursday, January 29, 2004 > > telco connectors > by "First Christian Church of Casey, IL" <kzrev@rr1.net> > > > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > > Subject: telco connectors > From: "First Christian Church of Casey, IL" <kzrev@rr1.net> > Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2004 23:40:48 -0600 > > Rich Schneider of Schneider Pipe Organs keeps them in stock. > > Dennis Steckley > & A Six-Pack of Cats > ----- Original Message ----- Phone Wiring BlockI'm re-installing my pipe > organ at home, and came up short one 100-wire phone > wiring block.

(back) Subject: I'm curious From: "Tim Bovard" <tmbovard@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 30 Jan 2004 19:22:55 -0600   Hello, everyone --   While looking through the latest issue of "The Diapason", (where I generally start with the classified ads on the last page) I again see an = ad from "Atlantic City Pipe Organ Company" listing a whole pile of old pipes and stuff for sale. This time with an extra (rather cryptic) 'more organs =   coming soon' phrase added. (they also have a very basic website)   I've seen these ads for a long time now, it seems, but in my various travels around the organ world, I've never come across anyone (that I know =   of, anyway) who has the slightest idea who this "company" is, has done business with them, or knows where in the world their seemingly endless supply of "stock" is coming from.   Anyone here got a clue? (reply privately if you wish, of course!)   Thanks all --   Tim Little Rock, AR

We're the ones who should be asking you these questions. Anyway, I, too, have wondered about this company. I've wanted to talk to somebody about an occasional rank myself. I figured they were too far away. I had one bittersweet experience with purchasing pipes thru the internet (e-bay). Fortunately, I was able to return them.   Take care, Keith Zimmerman   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Tim Bovard" <tmbovard@earthlink.net> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, January 30, 2004 8:22 PM Subject: [Residence Organs] I'm curious     > Hello, everyone -- > > While looking through the latest issue of "The Diapason", (where I > generally start with the classified ads on the last page) I again see an ad > from "Atlantic City Pipe Organ Company" listing a whole pile of old = pipes > and stuff for sale.

I know a church near here that recently got a new digital organ and had to pay the installers quite a decent sum of money to remove the old pipe organ after they were told it wasn't worth anything. I don't know about that organ in particular but it appears that some at least are taken away and sold . I was always curious if Stephen actually gets the prices that he lists on Church Organ Trader and in the Diapason.   I apologize if any of this is incorrect but it is what I was told second hand.   -Randy         On Friday, January 30, 2004, at 08:22 PM, Tim Bovard wrote:   > Hello, everyone -- > > While looking through the latest issue of "The Diapason", (where I > generally start with the classified ads on the last page) I again see > an ad from "Atlantic City Pipe Organ Company" listing a whole pile of > old pipes and stuff for sale.

I do not know the how or why he acquires his pipes but Randy's = description seem very plausible. (I was introduced to him by an Allen Rep) = I have never had anything shipped and have always picked the items up. = Steve has offered advice about repairs, usage, etc. He has discouraged me = from buying some pipes that he felt would not work well within my plans = and has suggested alternatives...and not necessarily more expensive ones, = either.   I don't want to be too encouraging since he still has items that I hope, = evenually, to be able to purchase. And, he does sometimes over estimate = the value of his goods...but has always been fair and a gentleman in my = dealings with him.   Al Blatter > > > Hi Tim, > > It is my understanding that Stephen Beddia (The Atlantic City Organ > Company) is a gentleman that works for Allen as an installer and takes > these organs out when installing new electonic organs.
