I enjoyed making the pipes. It's a good thing because I may have to remake one or two. One doesn't no play on the test roll, but if I just tape off all the other holes and crank, without the test roll it plays, although a little weak. The holes on the paper and the tracker bar line up nicely. I'm wondering if it is not getting enough air, or is leaking somewhere. Going to finish the case before I go back and worry it, I am so close!!!
Thanks Jay,,,,and Craig for the input. I will make me a little pipe cleaning tool and see if it helps. I am making the top, then I add the front, which is already built and I'm done. I'm going to try barrel hinges on the top so they will be hidden. The front will be too heavy for barrel hinges, so I will use something else.
A good sign, I gave my wife a look with me holding the front in place and she said WOW. I like to hear WOW from her, it t'aint easy to get out of her.
Thanks, course I still have a cart to build. Been looking for some old baby buggy wheels, but all I find are proving to be more than I am willing to spend.
Speaking of spending, I ordered another music roll from Mel. Wanted one with some childrens song, yep included "It's A Small World", and the "Birthday Song", hoping to play at my Grandson's Birthday the end of the month. It ended up being $78 American! Unless I can come up with some cheaper way my music will be very limited. I bet the rolls for an Universal would be even more...
