Building a Home Grown Busker Organ
By Wallace Venable
Julie Porter said "... I decided to see if I can make a simple busker
organ in a week's time frame... Details of this project are being
posted to the blog at my web site..."
Sounds like a great challenge, Julie.
"Of course it would be better if I could quickly acquire or borrow some
rolls and spools for the events this weekend."
If you can't get spools from someone local, you might consider my
El-Cheapo spool design which is on Mel Wright's John Smith pages.
The original spools used hex sockets, but I quickly changed to a drive
spindle which has a reduced nipple which fits inside the center tube
and a cross pin. The spools themselves now require only a cross slot
instead of the hot-formed hex socket. I'll try to post a picture of
the spindle on my personal web site later this week.
