Busker Building Hints
by Jim Bryan
|First of all, a big "Thank You" to John Smith for his work creating this
very satisfying project that has allowed many of us a somewhat simplified
launching pad into organ building that some of us might never have tried,
due to the overwhelming complexity of traditional designs. While challenging
to a degree, it was a very attainable and rewarding goal which was full of
things to learn that will be helpful on future projects. I am very happy
with the outcome.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the cloth to the wood pallets. The glue sticks were the slower hardening woodworking type and seemed to work rather well, but I still had to keep moving quickly, gluing about 3" at a time and getting it pressed down before the glue cooled too much. I also used Clear Silicone Sealant to seal leaks that I found while testing the bellows function.
