Place a pipe foot in one of the holes that fit the best, and read the size off the tool. That's the dimension of the hole you drill in the rackboard for that pipe.   I drew the plots, but completely stole the idea from Bob Trousdale's = gauge.   For a pic of it, go to:   www.octos.org/PipeToeGauge.htm   Enjoy the toy.......   Randy Bergum Fullerton, CA         > [Original Message] > From: Keith Zimmerman <kwzimmerman@alltel.net> > To: <diyapason-l@pipechat.org> > Date: 6/2/2004 9:12:08 AM > Subject: [Residence Organs] > > List, > > Please pardon my ignorance, but, hey, we are a bunch of DIYers, some of whom > know a whole lot more than others.

Essentially, it is a = rackboard with each individual hole diameter available, and a matching = toeboard with proper chamfering. The rackboard is placed at standard = height.   In order to make a new rackboard for a rank of pipes, you take each pipe = and find the rackboard hole which fits it best, and then note that = dimension next to the note name on your drilling list. When you're done, = you know what size to make all of your rack holes! Then you have to go = lay them out and drill them. . .   Greg Rister Pipe Organ Craftsmen Pomona, California   > > From: "Keith Zimmerman" <kwzimmerman@alltel.net> > Date: 2004/06/02 Wed AM 09:12:09 PDT > To: <diyapason-l@pipechat.org> > Subject: [Residence Organs] > > List, > > Please pardon my ignorance, but, hey, we are a bunch of DIYers, some of = whom > know a whole lot more than others.

Our general rule is if we would need to use felt in the rack board hole to make the pipe fit we use the next smaller size and them ream out the hole to the correct size so that the pipe can be rotated without binding but cannot wiggle around. If it can rotate then we know that it is seated correctly in the toe hole.   The photos are on the list web site by going to the resource page and tthen the link is at the very bottom.

I imagine this is different for every rank, depending on scale. How much clearance should there be between pipe walls?   Thanks, Scott E. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D grandcornet@verizon.net wrote:   > Hi Keith and List, > > This appears to be what we call a racking gauge.
