(back) Subject: Whose pipes do I have? From: "Paul R. Swank" <prswank@surfbest.net> Date: Mon, 21 Oct 2002 13:53:06 -0400   I have recently come into possession of several sets of pipes for my digital/pipe combination organ.   One set has these marking on them:   One pipe has 4872 over LL over MX over 2 over CC. (The number 4872 is only =   on one pipe.)   Another pipe in the same set has MX over 2 over the note letter i.e. F   others have MX over 3 over the note letter, i.e. F   My questions are:   Can we tell from these marking who made the pipes?   What does the LL mean?   What does the MX mean? (This is in the place where the name of the rank is =   usually located).   Thanks in advance for the info.   I'll probably have more cryptic markings when I get to the other ranks of pipes I have obtained.   Paul R. Swank Baltimore, MD.

Since it's a cc and therefore may be the lowest pipe of the rank. Pipemakers will most times place their initials on the lowest pipe.   MX of course means a mixture of some sort. 2 means it belongs to the 2nd rank of that stop. Obviously, 4872 is the opus number     John Mackey

I started reading this and immediately started scheming on how to get Rick from Callaway Gardens (where we will be for a few days next week) to the city for this Tuesday night organ recital. A job like this requires great strategy, because the only recitals Rick ever attended were ones I hosted with the church series.   Then I saw it was in Arkansas - guess I won't see the Chenaults next week after all.   Hopes dashed and sulking,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Seeing how complex the action is,   Do you think this action is complex? Austins are known for their simplicity. The shallow tray you refer to they call a "rim"   1) Austin actions (manual motors, stop actions, rails, etc. are fitted to a "rim" which becomes the top of the chest. This rim is only about 12 inches deep and should remain intact for dismantling (the trackers, which connect from one side of the rim on a spring running across to the manual motor can, and should be removed (they are after all, trackers and are therefore delicate) they are simply hooked on and require no tools.   2) the rest of almost any austin chest can resemble anything from a large coffin to a small one story house.   3) don't forget to remove the rackboard & posts (It's sometimes tempting to try using a post as a handle, BUT!!! one will always break off!).   4) when disconnecting wires, always disconnect at the relay board or rail, not at the chest. One more thing. Austins wiring is color coded but, they also wire in spares, sometimes screw-up order during installing, service people sometimes change wiring so thing won't always be in perfect order.   PS dismantling A 3m anything is mucho trabaho. Last one I did (I worked for Austin for a short time) took 4 men, 3 days.   Best of luck.   John Mackey
