Guest Cynic Posted February 13, 2007 Share Posted February 13, 2007 [Calm down, I'm not talking about Cocaine!!] I'm anxious to tap some of the expert knowledge held by various readers of this forum. Thankyou in advance for any help that readers can give. Problem I have discovered quite an amount of a white powdery substance around and in the feet of some relatively new, ?80% or so pure tin pipes. They are in contact with modern plywood upperboards, (I hasten to add, not MDF, which I am aware gives off a chemical if not properly sealed). This is in an imported organ, made in Germany under twenty years ago. I am not aware that it has suffered from anything untoward - a little damp, maybe, and some cold....nothing new in churches I'd have thought. I realise that this white substance must be something akin to oxidisation, but am anxious to give the affected pipes some sort of treatment. For a start, the smaller pipes are now getting rather less than their intended wind supply due to the powder forming in the pipe tip-hole. Help!
