The blower for the antiphonal division of my church's pipe organ
self-destructed recently. The broken one is a "Ventus, 1 HP, 3360 RPM, 3
We have a quote for a replacement, a "Zephyr, 1 HP, 3450 RPM, 3 phase."
I'd be very interested in receiving any leads that might give us some
alternatives for a replacement. (I remember mention of an auction in
Indiana, with some blowers available; does anyone know details?) Does
anyone have a compatible blower that they want to sell?
Also, there are several pipe organ companies that have corresponded with
MMD. If you are interested in sending a proposal, please send me a note.
[ It may be too late for the auction. It was discussed in Digest 980822:
