Items for sale

Following a spring-clean of the workshop I have selected a number of items no longer needed. Some are the unused remains of product runs, and others are simply surplus to requirements. Quantities are hardly on an industrial scale, but these items may be useful for the amateur organ builder. If you are interested in any of the items shown below, please me for more details or to make offers - you will notice a complete lack of prices, as items only have value when wanted.

This list will change over time, so you would be wise to browse periodically.


Barrel organ keys

These keys were made for the 2Rs Gavioli to a pattern based on an original. They were laser-cut from 1.25mm sheet steel. I have six of these keys as pictured, plus four with hardened tips and mounted on wood blocks, two of which are fitted with adjusting screws. I also have one of the better-preserved originals, also with adjusting screws.


Key-frame Leaf Springs

Double-ended springs: 20mm wide x 1.4mm thick.
8 at 225mm long
4 at 234mm long
5 at 240mm long



Push-rod Guides

These are brass tubes specially finished for use in Mortier-style action chests for guiding the push-rods. The holes are a smooth fit for 15swg wires.
3.25mm o.d. length: 24mm.
I have 155 of these.


Threaded wires

16swg phosphor bronze wires roll-threaded.

32 at 73mm long with 10mm thread each end and 15mm thread in centre
13 at 102mm long with 6mm thread one end and 3mm thread other end

Sizes not suitable? I can make up threaded wires to order, 16swg or 15swg.


Brass tubing nipples

Thin-wall brass tube tapered for easy fitting of flexible tubing.

19 at 7.2mm o.d. x 5.6mm i.d.
89 at 6mm o.d. x 4mm i.d.
15 at 8.8mm o.d. x 7.9mm i.d.


Felted Wood Buttons

These buttons (source unknown) have been languishing in a box in the workshop for years, waiting for an opportunity to be used. Would you like to make their day? I have 160 of them at 10mm diameter x 13mm deep. They have holes for fitting with threaded wires or small screws.


Castanets

A set of two beech castanets (only one shown), ready for threading together.
Overall length: 175mm.
