Building a Home Grown Busker Organ
By Wallace Venable

Yesterday Julie Porter said, "... I decided to see if I can make a
simple busker organ in a week's time frame..."

I replied, "... you might consider my El-Cheapo spool design ...
I'll try to post a picture of the spindle on my personal web site later
this week."

I have rewritten the description of the spool construction method and
have posted it at 

It might be suitable for any home built roll playing organ.  They won't
fit a Raffin, however, unless you modify the organ a bit.
