Hi All: I saw the advert in the Dec 7th MMD posting about William
Endlein's 42-note calliope for sale. When I went to the referenced
web site, it states that the calliope has "brass colored _polymer_
pipes". I have the Stanoszek plans for a calliope and have often
wondered about making the pipes out of plastic (pipe), for
convenience. The referenced web site also states that the polymer
pipes are more temperature stable.
Does anyone have plans for making a set of plastic calliope pipes?
I could sort of copy the Stanoszek plans but I believe that plastic
pipe material, at least from plumbing sources, is not available in as
many different diameters as are listed for the brass pipes, so some
adaptations would need to be made. Any help would be appreciated.
