Title:Mark Thompson further organ work, Nov 14, 2011

 Mark Thompson and organ blower

Mark Thompson was back on Monday 11/14 to complete some maintenance from the end of August.

One of the key goals of his recent work was bringing the blower bellows from attic. Mark has built a baffle box to house the blower below the left window in the gallery (when facing the gallery). It will be at window level so it won’t show. He has reconfigured the main wind line and built a wood cover the line. The main reason for this last task is to avoid extreme hot or cold air which will cut the tuning to one time a year rather than four. In addition, the hot air and humidity is bad for the pipes. 

Thanks to Elizabeth Heimbach for a set of pictures.
