Also, there have been several studies on the pressure rise in the pipe foot with different actions. Check ISO Information and other texts. Suffice it to say that the most control is effected by a sensitive mechanical action. This is most audible when playing with the finger off the key in contrast with playing beginning with the finger on the key and using arm weight to accomplish a slow and smooth opening of the pallet. These variations are not very obvious if the action has so much "pluck" that the key immediately descends to its full depth upon pallet opening. The amount of pluck can be controlled with careful pallet sizing, adjustable leverage in the action, and balancing of return spring tension.

Could you use one of the weighted piano lamps on the long stand? Is there a way to install a fluorescent stick (such as the smaller under-counter lighting) at the bottom of the music stand to reflect upward? Or maybe some tracker lighting from the ceiling?   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

(back) Subject: Spencer Blower problems From: "Roy Redman" <rredman@imagin.net> Date: Tue, 31 Dec 2002 18:57:52 -0600   One of the organs we service has an old Spencer with sleve bearings and slinger rings for oiling. About a year ago, the organist called and said the blower would not start. I suggested they call an electrician and motor shop. They diagnosed the problem as bad bearings. A year later the same thing happened. The motor man called me and said it appeared that air coming out around the shaft was blowing the oil out of the bearing next to the fan. I replied that I had never heard of such a thing, and was skeptical. Upon consulting the Spencer Turbine website, I found they had a manual posted for the Orgoblow. On page 9 I found "Be sure that the leather or steel disc No. 6 is in its place on the shaft and turns with it. If this is left off, it will be likely to blow the oil out of the motor bearing and cause trouble. This, however, cannot occur if the disc is in place." We are in process of developing a split ring that we can install without dissembling the blower. Have any of you had a similar problem? Perhaps your solution will help us all Roy Redman
