(back) Subject: Pipe Organ looking for a new home update X-Posted From: "Charlie Jack" <Charlie@Jack.NET> Date: Thu, 29 Apr 2004 21:56:11 -0400   It seems I left out a few details about the organ that's looking for a new home.   The organ is in a church in Watertown, Massachusetts just east of Boston. It's located at the intersection of Mt. Auburn Ave and Common Street.   The developer would like to have the organ out of the church by the first of July.   The organ is installed in a balcony over the altar area. Whomever removes it will have to deal with getting it down from that balcony. The easiest way to get the chests out of the balcony is over the side however you will almost certainly need the services of a rigger to get the large chests out. I didn't check the blower other than to note that it's in the basement and will need serious lifting capacity to remove.   The developer has expressed a desire to see the organ relocated intact rather than have it scattered or worse broken up for scrap. Anyone who can assure him of that is most likely to be the one to get it.   I have already had several persons express interest so if you wish to pursue this please contact me ASAP. I will pass on the contact information of serious parties next week.   Charlie Jack Charlie@Jack.NET or GomidasOrgan@Comcast.NET (508)-254-5925     Charlie Jack Charlie@Jack.NET

Is that really called a "tripper" system? In my native language this word means something completely different . So I naturally would hesitate to use this word in such serious circles like organists or church musicians :-) Hans-Friedrich Hell the "Tripper" system is a system that uses a double-acting cam (actually a =   series of them) that is fastened to a trace (usually a rectangular bar of punched steel, brass or aluminum). the cam is settable to an "on" position = and an "off" position. This cam actuates a mechanism which looks like a = rectangular arrangement of bars which 'rock' backwards and forwards when moved by the = cam, thus turning the stop tablet (or drawknob) on or off depending on the = position of the cam. the rectangular 'bar' assembly is fastened on one end to a = pair of electrical contacts which when set to the ON position eneable a given stop = to function (whether it be a pitman stop-action primary, a switch on a relay = or a magnet to energize a pull pneumatic to move a slider to the desired On or = Off position.   It probably reads, from my meager description, more complicated than it really is, but when you are out with Felix and he plays on an older organ = using the mechanical combination systme we are talking about, as the incumbent = organist to pop the lid of the console so you can examine the mechanism...it is simple, and relatively reliable, and has been in use for MANY years.   Rick in VA
