Replaced damaged components More of the wind chest mold. Water got to the inside as well, so we basically had to "start over" and go down to the wood and replace all damaged components, including valves and the leather that carries the valves inside.

St Luke Water Damage

Following a particularly snowy Minnesota winter, the Spring thaw revealed an unknown leak in the roof at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Minneapolis. The water found its way into a part of the organ in the chancel where the 16' Bourdon (wood pipes) gradually stopped working. Our task was to restore it.
