    Allen I am going to post soon how to build a single pipe so if you want you can try your hand at it. If you can build it an make it play (which I'm sure you can with our help) you can build a organ.

    bellows cloth used to join and seal bellow together then res is screwed to top of bellow with a seal around the edge to make air tight. ( I have a lot of seal for those that need it)

    I knew we would get you sooner or later.
    Here is Johns email address best just to ask him with you time differences you should have a answer when you get up as he check for orders in the a.m. and he is 6 hr ahead of me and I think you are 4 hr behind me. Do you have Skype?
    Depending on when you go to bed you may have a answer tonight yet.

    rsmithbusker"AT"ntlworld.com replace the "AT" with @

    Welcome aboard Royall

    OK here goes with the Pipe build I hope everyone can figure it out if not speak up and I will try to do a better job of explaining. Going to try to give enough info so everyone reading this can build this pipe and make it play after that you will need to buy the plans from John Smith.

    Pipe width is easiest to cut using mm if you want it to be in inch's just divide by 25.4 (Pipe is 8 percent bigger then finished pipe to allow for trimming)

    Cut out the pipe pieces out of 1/8" stock 2-14mm x 6 7/8 (top and back) and 2-23.5mm x 6 7/8 (sides) The inside measurement should be 14mm x 17.5mm so you will have to adjust the sides for the thickness of stock you are using.

    This shows how I glue them up on the jig ( I'm showing 2 pipes here) this is the side (on bottom) and the top (on edge) just put glue on the edge and push down with the clamps and use something square to line them up, the glue will set enough to hold in less than 5 min so you can move along pretty fast.

    This shows the top after cutting off the end cap and the mouth insert (cut just a little long as you will sand them down later), that leaves the right length for the front opening without cap. Use the part you have glued to get the length of the 2 small parts as shown on the top of picture on the other pipe. (hope thats clear)

    This shows sanding an edge on the top just make it a pretty flat angle and the edge of mouth piece about 45 or so.

    continue on next post.

    After sanding the top flat you should have a flat spot on this edge that needs to be at lest 1mm (1/16") wide. If not sand as picture below with a small sanding stick

    I sent the email off. If I read correctly earlier in the tread John is in England? When I sent the mail it was 6:30 PM Friday and 4:30 AM Saturday morning in Jolly Old England. I don't have Skype, but I have Magic Jack. Same thing I guess. I didn't give him the phone number as it would be difficult to explain tot the wife at this time if she took the call. Better to say sorry later than argue about it now
    Aloha,

    Cut a shim from a pop carton or what ever as shown. It must be .5mm (or less NOT more) thick and I know that pop cartons are the right thickness just lightly sand the paint off as shown this is a critical measurement. Glue to pipe.

    Now cut a bottom cap 1mm longer than needed and glue to bottom set it just above the mouth about 1mm not critical (just make sure its a little above the mouth) Then cut a top as seen under my thumb (about 1 1/2" long or what ever length you want and cut and sand a 45 deg edge on it.
    Also make a plug as shown and cut a piece of chamois as shown plug is just smaller than top opening of pipe sand to size as needed.

    Put a dab of glue on plug and glue to chamois, install into end of pipe. This needs to be a snug fit you want no leak here but you also need to move it up or down to get on note. Check pipe for leaks by blowing on bottom if you have any leaks they will need to be sealed to make pipe play right. Sealing the pipe is the most important it can not have any leakage. I use shellac to seal the inside of the pipes

    Use a rubber band to attach the top cap so you can move it up and down while blowing in the hole in back to voice the pipe. This is something that you might want to watch the video by Phil Radford that I posted a few posts back. I couldn't find it ether so here it is

    Last picture is of the tinner when its on note you do that by sliding the plug up or down. I was getting tired when I done this as it should be set at D# not D and I was running out of breath.

    If you have any questions just ask once you are done building this pipe you are well on your way to building an organ.

    Enjoy
