Interesting. The placement of the divisions on the stop jams is odd, but if the manuals and pedalboard are in decent shape, and the stop solenoids are functional, this could make for a relatively inexpensive dyi hauptwerk project.

You're right about the unorthodox division placements, but knobs are knobs - easily reordered.

Of more concern is that it appears that at least the manual keying is missing. The keytails are those for the crank type key action contact units (a la Moeller or various others.) I'm not sure whose work the console is. The knob units are (I think) Kimber-Allen, which can be somewhat problematic.

The price is obviously low, and I would say fair and reasonable for a console which will take a great deal of work to be made serviceable for any purpose - Hauptwerk or other.

The expression/crescendo pedals appear to be products of Moller...

Could be the previous organist for this instrument had a expression pedal foot placement issue. :o Remedy - a piece of metal bar stock and 2 sheet metal screws to secure the 2 expr pedals together. 8) Not a perfect solution for an organ with 5 or 6 expr pedals tho.

Someone picked it up for the minimum bid of $200. Nice buy!
