Remember that explosion in my workshop?

The stop mechanism of my Estey Model N is now rebuilt. It is sporting a nice coat of polyurethane on the name board showing off the gold lettering of the Estey Organ company. I touched up the damaged underlying black finish with matt black paint first. The result is really quite pleasing.

I have replaced the nails in the linkage bar retainers with screws to make reassembly more easy and secure.

Even though the stop shaft bushings and the felt at the back of the stop knobs was previously black I replaced it with red felt. The red felt against the black name board is really beautiful.

This restoration is at a really advanced stage. I have begun tuning so the end is nigh. Final assembly soon.

Pictures below. Before long there will be video.
