    here is a link to ww grangers motor selector that might help you guys locate a motor for this build.

    darn it can't get the link to work. just go to their web site and select motors, then select find a motor by application then gear motor.

    Bellows install and Acc windchest

    Well I figured I had better show what I have been up to.

    This is the Bellows install in the case. I ended up having to lower the end with the metal bracket to get enough clearance for the acc windchest (take note for those who are building.

    Errors on drawing

    I need to let some folks know of some errors I have found. I have talked to John and changes are coming just want to give those building and watching here the heads up.

    The Accompaniament pipes on pg #6 the C# pipe internal depth should be 1-7/32 not 1-7/64

    On pg #7 the measurement for drilling "A" shown at the bottom of pg should be 1-3/4" NOT 1-1/4" shown.

    On pg #8 for the Melody Bourdons. The internal depth starting at "B" & "C" pipe should be 11/16 NOT 5/8 and the Width should be 5/8 (nothing shown)

    Hope I have got these to you in time.

    Jay,
    Could you clarify this please?

    "On pg #8 for the Melody Bourdons. The internal depth starting at "B" & "C" pipe should be 11/16 NOT 5/8 and the Width should be 5/8 (nothing shown)"

    So, B through E (starting at the top of the list) are 11/16 int. depth and 5/8 int. width?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Yes that is right John was in the process of changing it and got side tracked.
    I cut "D#" & "E" 5/8" and 1/2" Im not sure if thats right or not but it what I did. John said what is wrote down was what the pipes measured.

    bellows testing

    Case is done and ready to test bellows pressure and do adjusting but: I don't see how the fitting that goes on the bellows is made, When that is figured out then is the water gauge connected to it and the main reservoir hole closed off?
