In trying to put together bits of organ fundraising yesterday I happened upon our organ technician’s website, and found the previous lot of repairs are listed as a case study.

As part of this contract, we felt for historic reasons, that it was important to retain the three attached feeders. These still have their iron likages connecting them to the off-set main shaft and the original cogged wheel, which was ultimately connected via a belt to the steam engine. The engine was of course removed many years ago, but this Victorian mechanism is very interesting to view.

Emphasis mine.

I TOLD you I played a steampunk instrument. It’s worth repairing, if just for that.

We’ve now raised £15. Only £24985 to go…
