Basically you dispense with a common = wind channel and bore directly to the pallet for each pitch. The pallet then becomes its own check valve. For a more extensive study see Praetorius. The use of this system in modern times was revived and developed, I = believe, by Josef Von Glatter-Gotz of Rieger. It was used in the small compact and portable series organs built just after WWII. We have used the system ourselves as far back as 1975. It is not as good as having independent voices, of course, but can extend the resources of a small organ at about = half the cost of an independent stop. One can usually spot a unit mechanical = chest easily, because the pipes from every octave are planted close together. = One must be careful that the wind is equal from pallets 1 and 12, etc. Roy Redman   ray ahrens wrote:   > To the builders on the list: > > How does one build a mechanical action unit pedal chest, ya know, one = rank > of pipes with upper octave extension. > > _______________________________________________________________ > Get Free Email and Do More On The Web.

(back) Subject: Re: tracker action pedal units From: Prestant16@aol.com Date: Tue, 10 Aug 1999 21:27:06 EDT   I have seen it done by treating the one stop, say a 16' Bourdon as a = single division, and when the 8' is pulled on, a mechanical octave coupler in engaged and thus couples the 16' Bourdon at 8'. I have seen this done = with a 16' Open wood where pulling the 32' Double Diapason knob couples the 16' Diapason an octave lower, and pulls on an independent 10 2/3' Stopped = flute quint and the lowest 12 notes of the diapason. Very smart technique.   -William C.

A hole would be bored from the channel through the slider and into but not through the toe board for both the sixteen foot and eight foot stop. A router is used to connect the two holes in the underside of the toe board and a single hole is bored through to the other side of the toe board somewhere along that routed channel and would recieve the pipe. The duplexing only needs to be done for an octave and a half and is not that complicated. Pedal units of 16-8-4 can also be done without too much difficulty even Flues 16-8-4 and reeds 16-8-4 can be put in rather compact spaces.   Bruce
