Write me if interested and I will send all of the = information, type, mfg web site etc. These are the matrix, PIC = microcontroller type that scan 128 points with no configuration needed.   Regardless of what happens to my scanners, I think MIDIfying keyboards = is the best way to augment your pipe organ. And, if you like theatre = voices, you can do so for about $300.00 with the modules as sold by Paul = Swank. I bought four of them and have the best organ I have ever had.

(back) Subject: Laukhuff blower oil From: "Paul Soulek" <pipeorganpaul@yahoo.com> Date: Tue, 9 Mar 2004 14:47:05 -0800 (PST)   Hi all,   I went to oil the blower on our organ (Laukhuff, 1/4 hp) while I'm home for spring break this week, only to discover that the oil, usually located right next to the blower, is gone. I've searched high and low (both at the church and at home) and cannot find it. I was wondering if there is some sort of off-the-shelf oil I can use in its place. I don't exactly know what the other oil was, but I got it with the blower.   Thanks for your help! Paul   __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

Will a postal money order be OK?   Give me your address, just to be sure I am sending it to the right place. Is $100.00 the amount? What about shipping cost?   I had tried to contact him (Tom Scarff) some time ago and never got a response, so I just dropped it.   On the dim screens...Roland is now charging $75.00 for a replacement LCD for the D-110. From what I have seen in the schematics, there is no adjustment from the 5 volts. I understand that they are sensitive to voltages, so I haven't tried to increase the voltage to them, and adding $75.00 to my cost for the dim modules would be prohibitive for me. I sell =   them for Overflow modules, where the user doesn't have to look at the screen for the MIDi messages to be sent to it. Unfortunately, many of the =   modules that i buy have the dim screen, so I have to figure it into my = costs.   Glad you are enjoying your modules.   Paul R.

Heating = contractors and furnace/boiler servicepersons use this oil for fan motors, circulators and other electric motors. The brand I use is called "Hercules" and comes in a 4 oz squeeze plastic container with a long spout for hard-to-reach places. Hope this helps. Will

I don't know how to answer that exactly. They sound great in my opinion, or most = do anyway. Paul Swank could tell you all about how they work. The voices were created by Valhala and Paul loads them into the D110 (reconditioned) but I don't know if he would sell the sounds only without the module.His email = is prswank@surfbest.net. He runs the yahoo group RTOM. Worth looking at if you haven't already.   John Adams ----- Original Message ----- From: "John Haskey" <johnh@haskey.net> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Tuesday, March 09, 2004 6:46 PM Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] scanners     > > > On Tue, 9 Mar 2004, John Adams wrote: > > > These scanners were made by Tom Scarff, web site is > > www.tomscarff.tripod.com. > > Drop the www to get this URL to work... > > http://tomscarff.tripod.com/ > > > Regardless of what happens to my scanners, I think MIDIfying > > keyboards is the best way to augment your pipe organ.

(back) Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Laukhuff blower oil From: "Jimmy" <jrbaird@erols.com> Date: Tue, 09 Mar 2004 21:23:17 -0500   Hi All,   The laukhuff small blowers that I've used recently all come with a vial of synthetic oil for the motor bearings. I would assume that 'real' oil and the synthetic oil should not be mixed. Therefore where can I get the thin synthetic oil as used for motor bearings?? I can try electric motor repair shops, although we don't have any in my area.   Jimmy   wcjharrisville wrote: > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Paul Soulek" <pipeorganpaul@yahoo.com> > To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> > Sent: Tuesday, March 09, 2004 5:47 PM > Subject: [Residence Organs] Laukhuff blower oil > > > Hi all, > > > > I went to oil the blower on our organ (Laukhuff, 1/4 > > hp) while I'm home for spring break this week, only to > > discover that the oil, usually located ------. > > Plumbing supply houses and electric motor repair shops carry a very > high grade oil without all the "automotive" additives.

They have a rep in Michigan who could probably give you the information you need. F. Richard Burt ..
