    Hi JayDee, I could imagine that some of our members (which includes several organ builders amongst others) have experience with various organ restorations.

    But I think you would need to provide some more details about the organ you wish to restore. For example it's current condition, size, type of action (tracker, pneumatic, etc.), location, age, builder, etc. Basically as much as you know about the instrument in question.

    Kind regards
    Frederik

    great! i just wasnt sure if your forum would allow this
    type of question.
    the organ is a 1902 hinners and albertson
    2 manual 61 key
    14 rank
    27 pedal
    mechanical action
    all of the exterior wood is in great shape
    with little if any altorations and will restore
    beutifully. keys are all but perfect.
    pipes that i have inspected seem to be fine
    but no expert.my first concern is lay-out
    and placement of interior parts,as i bought
    the organ dismantled. need to acuire info
    on how to bring the organ back to original.
    the previous owner had made modifications
    but didnt supply a list.
    thanks j.d.

    Hi j.d.
    I was in London recently and purchased an interesting publication which may be of some help.
    'Historic organ conservation' A practical introduction to processes and planning. by Dominic Gwynn published by Church House Publishing ISBN 0 7151 7592 0
