cverey Posted April 4, 2011 Share Posted April 4, 2011 As a complete amateur planning to build a small tracker organ I need some advice on action - backfalls in particular. I understand the traditional fan frame pivoted on wires but what about 'floating' backfalls that pivot on a felt rail. Is the oblique angle of the outer backfalls not taken into account at the pivot? Since the weight of the backfall hangs on the pull down wire to the pallets what should they be made from? I have all the old publications on organbuilding but has anything been written that is more up to date in terms of techniques and materials? "Take a length of 2" mahogany" is not a lot of use! Help!
