They therefore cancelled Edwin = H. Lemare's booking, which is probably just as well for him.   John Speller

Where?   On Moller organs the pitmans are on a separate rail rather than on the pouchboard. They are kept in place by thin card pitman retainers, = popularly known as "toilet seats" from their shape. When you take down the bottomboards usually one or two or these pitman retainers fall of, and = they tend to be a pain to get back up. The easiest way to get them back -- = known as the "Electrolux method" -- is to attach a vacuum cleaner to the hole at the end of the pitman rail, which will produce enough vacuum that the = pitman will stay up while you glue the retainer back up.   John Speller   ----- Original Message ----- From: <Seedlac@aol.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, February 02, 2005 5:51 PM Subject: Moller tubular help needed     > I am working on an unaltered 1917 Moller tubular and need to learn about the > inner workings of the Manuel to pedal coupler actions and pitman rails. > > 1) In both Swell to Pedal and Great to pedal there is a cipher (not the > same note) I am hoping that both are due to loose tubes.

Whether or not it is factual is = anyone's guess, but it seems credible:   Titanic's organ still playing By John Willard -- Quad-City Times, March 21, 2000   Old movie palaces had lush sounding organs. So did the world's most = famous seagoing palace - almost.   The owners of the Titanic had ordered a fancy custom-built pipe organ to furnish music aboard ship when the orchestra was not entertaining.   The instrument was not completed in time for the Titanic's maiden = voyage, which ended April 14, 1912 when it struck an iceberg in the North = Atlantic. The ship sank, killing 1,500 people.   The organ is still with us.   The little-known story of the Titanic's organ was researched by Rick = Sundin, a Titanic buff from Davenport, for an article he submitted to the = Titanic Historical Society and the Titanic International Society.   Sundin said the White Star Line ordered the instrument, a philharmonic parlor player pipe organ, especially for the Titanic. Housed in an = ornate, hand-carved mahogany cabinet, the organ had 450 pipes but no keyboard. = Like player pianos, it used rolls of perforated paper to operate the keys. = The instrument was made by a German firm, the Welte Co., which is long out = of business.   The organ was to have graced the Titanic's first class boat deck = entrance to the grand staircase, but the Welte Co. was unable to meet the deadline = for the ship's maiden voyage. Under a revised plan, the organ was to be installed on the ship after her return voyage to England.   The organ was waiting in Southampton when the Titanic went down.   Where is the organ today?   Sundin said the instrument, in pristine condition and containing almost = all of its original parts, has passed through several collectors. A wealthy Japanese businessman recently acquired the treasure for about $750,000, = he said.     http://www.qctimes.com/willard/04JW0321.html     "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
