Here's my improvised paint booth for Saturday...a 45 dollar eBay find! I laid a tarp down and set it up over it. This will keep the dust down and bugs out for the spray lacquer. I set up a fan on the outside for air removal. There are plenty of areas where air can enter on the bottom and corners, so no need for an intake area. I think it will work fine. I'll wear a respirator.

  Well, Danny came by yesterday, and we made a day of it. It took us about three hours to get setup to spray. We ended up getting two coats on about half of the organ and one set of legs. He was full of tips for me. I feel a little more confident about doing this now. I took a couple of pictures, but it was a little dark in there...late in the day:

Sorry I've not posted in a while. I've been BUSY at my real job, and am now interrupted by a birthday shelf system for my much better half. I found  an action shot of me learning to spray lacquer:

 
After I get the organ set up, I'll post a picture.

I set up the organ and took a photo. Today I sat in the tone generator and bolted it down. I also ordered the trek preamp, for those taking notes. That hurt!

I've been following this project and now it's starting to get exciting!  Sorry for your pain though.

Yeah Darryl. It cost about $300.00 MORE than I thought. If you know anything about Hammond organs, the early models did not have percussion like the classic B3 model I've built. That was an extra charge from Trek II. They already have the circuitry in the preamp, but said the CV model I have required a separate unit. Go figure. Oh well....Anyway, today I installed the vibrato line box. I flipped the organ over to make it easier. It still wasn't easy due to the type fasteners they used. But I persevered and got it on. I took picture of it upside down.

I just received the new preamp for the organ. This is a digital unit that replaces the heavier tube preamp. It also includes a reverb unit, and a unit to add percussion to the organ. Hammond organs this old did not have percussion, and a B3 model does. Here's a picture of the new parts. I'm in the deep end now!

Well, I learned a little late in life to swim....so I guess that still applies. I'm learning as I go about Hammond organs. I've always said, if you can read and add, you can do anything. I think that is about to be put to the test for me!

I'll tell you everything I know about Hammond organs. The church I attended as a kid had one and if one were to inadvertently bump the speaker, it sounded like thunder. Hope that helps.

Seriously though, I wish you well as you undertake this faze of your project.

 I知 going to try to finish the organ project this month. It will be next month when I値l make the second flight case to carry the lower legs, pedal, and cables. I知 also going to make a spot in the second case for my new Korg Kronos 73 which I値l be playing on top of the organ. All of my equipment will then be in just two flight cases. Today I began staining the music rack. I decided to use the old CV rack which is walnut, hoping that the cypress/walnut contrast after staining will not be too noticeable. I think it will do fine. I had to make one of the curved ends of the rack which somehow got thrown away during my construction! Anyway, the right end that I made out of walnut will also House the trek reverb on off switch. That痴 why there is a hole in that end. It was a trip to fit, but it turned out perfect! I test fit the rack on my project and it fit well. Here are some pictures of it after I made it, a picture of it set in place for fit, and a picture of it stained.

  

  

 
The electronics and soldering of the new Trek preamp has gone well...the supplied instructions were good, and the company has great customer help. Pineywoods has been a constant help for me in engineering minor components to help the project along. He is one of the good...grumpy old men!
Here is a photo of wiring progress. The electronics are 90% completed. The music stand above had to be installed in order to hook up the last few switches. The bracing board was removed of course.

Well, the CV/B3 project hit a major snag today. After the start run switch did nothing, I decided to call a technician, and he was in the area and stopped by. He replaced the start switch and it fired up...but major problems were then realized. First time it has been turned on. Anyway, the note contacts were screwed on multiple notes causing constant tones. We decided to use a working replacement CV from his warehouse. I have to remove the entire organ from the cabinet, and take it to his warehouse where we will install a working CV. Oh well...I will persevere. At least on my end, the trek install was good. I致e learned a tremendous amount about the Hammond organ over the last year and a half. All is well.

I'm glad I wasn't there when you learned you had to take the organ out of the cabinet.  :)

Planman, this reminds me of an experience I had years ago when the boss and I thought we were finished with a big project only to find that we had to tear into it again.

The boss and I were working late one night putting together an Weinig moulder.  Tried it and one of the spindles would spin for about 30 seconds and quit.  I felt like crying, was too tired to cuss.  I was at my wits end.  Boss says. "Go home and have a beer. Meet me here at 10 am. I learned a whole lot from that man.

Similar to what happened to me here when I made a 44" opening from the existing Cabin into the Cabin Addition.  She said that it should be an "opening" rather than a "doorway" so 44" became 94".   ;D

Edit:  And then as sometime happens, I got hung up on the Cabin Addition topic for over an hour.   :P

Hey, life happens! At this point, I知 enjoying it all, good and bad. For those who care, I weighed the completed organ main body today before I begin disassembly. It weighs 185 lbs...quite a bit less than an original Hammond B3. Of course, the flight case weighs a bit, but I値l be able to maneuver it up stairs alone...that was the goal...to set it up myself.
