    Hello from downunder

    Hi all
    Just found this forum when googling for info on John Smith organs.
    I see you have a really good thread going on them ,GREAT STUFF!!
    I would like to introduce myself
    I am 68 years young and have quite a wide variety of interests, such as woodturning ,dolls house fittings ,model horse drawn wagons, Model boats(static and racing).
    I have recently finished a John smith busker organ and that was one of the best and most enjoyable projects that i have done ,this has whetted my appetite to do the Topsy 3, but am a little unsure if i can do the electronic part as that is not something that I am very familiar with,I will join in the thread soon if thats OK with you.
    Cheers
