In the November NEMES Gazette president Dick Boucher mentioned an upcoming open house at the Noack Organ Company. He mentioned it again at the membership meeting on the 2nd and I decided that it sounded more interesting than whatever my wife might have in store for me on a Saturday afternoon. So after the weekly trip to the dump, ahh, transfer station in town we headed north to Georgetown.
What occasioned the open house was the completion of an organ that is to be delivered to Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. Here are photos of the organ and the shop of the Noack Organ Company.
This is the instrument that we had come to see and hear
The second and third photos give you an idea of the amazing number of pieces that make up a large organ
This instrument is under construction and gave an opportunity to see parts that are normally not ever seen
(L) a series of wooden pipes awaiting assembly and (R) a small upright style organ
In the basement work area are a 9" south Bend lathe, an Enco mill drill and a cutoff saw built into a long table
Upstairs are offices and another wood shop area
Woodworkers can never have too many clamps or it seems too many Forstner bits
