Clark, Quilisma Publications" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Wed, 02 Jun 2004 09:04:08 -0700   Most of the organs at Yale had timers, including Battell Chapel. Woolsey Hall didn't, but anybody locking up the building at night would hear those huge turbines in the basement (chuckle) and KNOW to turn THEM off.   I'd be a LITTLE leery of a timer in a church situation. I suppose a timer that would allow the organ to run a little longer than the typical Sunday schedule would be OK ... say for six or eight hours in a liturgical church with a full schedule of Sunday services ... you just don't want the organ shutting off at the wrong time (chuckle).   I used to practice on a Moller from the 1920s that had a large hinged brass tongue over a pushbutton ... when you closed the roll-top, it pushed down on the tongue and shut off the blower. That would work in churches where the roll-top is customarily closed and locked when the organ isn't in use.   For me, having the console lights on the blower switch is the best = reminder.   Cheers,   Bud   Emmons, Paul wrote:   > In these automated days, it should be easy to add a timer to the > blower switch such that it shuts itself off after a specified period > of time, e.g. 12 or 24 hours.
