Organ Blower Needed
By Steve McCollum

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.

Thank you!

 [ Steve,
 [   It may be too late for the auction.  It was discussed in Digest 980822:
 [   I have no doubt that some of our readers will have ideas about your
 [ inquiry.  However you should probably also check out the Pipe Organ
 [ list server.  I think the procedure is the same as it was when I
 [ subscribed a long time ago.  Send two e-mail messages.  Each
 [ gets sent to:
 [ Make the subject line blank.  In the first message body say:
 [ In the second message (send it after receiving the confirmation)
 [ This is a very active (and somewhat noisy) group but has much wider
 [ circulation amongst those who deal with pipe organs.
 [ Good Luck   --Jody
