I’m restoring a 1959 Lowrey Heritage Organ in my spare time.  I finally moved it inside from my garage, where it’s been for nearly a year.  It’s too hot to work on in the garage.  Now I can work on it at my convenience.  It’s 99% functional, with only 1 key not working.  The problem is cleaning the contacts.  This organ is completely analog, which means that if the contacts are dirty, the sound can be inconsistent or squirrely.  It’s been extremely tedious work, but the heavily oxidized and corroded contacts are coming clean.  The tough part is re-assembly after cleanup.  If I do one stop or so per day, I’ll be done in no time, though!

I’ll be sure to post pictures and perhaps even video after it’s all done.
