Built a little cart to put my Crank Organ on. Looked kind of tacky sitting on a folding card table when I took it somewhere to play it. The Chassis/wheels are from a baby carriage my daughter gave me. I’m working on some decorations to add to the cart to liven it up a bit.

If your crank organ is so big you need to build a cart for it, you should go into porn. Oh wait, I see what you mean now. Very nice cart

You can get a sample of it playing here. I was a little, ah, inebriated when I made this video. Been celebrating the completion.

I have a good monkey! Don’t have to clean up after it and only have to feed it a battery once in a while.

PaulDoug – you did a nice job with the cart, and even better with the Busker Organ.

It looks like one designed by my pal John Smith, did you use his plans ?

At some time in the future, perhaps you might consider making a Topsy ! (see http://www.johnsmithbusker.co.uk/ )

Yes it is John’s Senior 20 model, using his plans. I have plans for the Busker and Universal also, but have decided to stick with the 20 notes because the music is expensive. The Topsy is expensive to build. I have limited funds for this sort of thing. I plan another Senior or Busker with additional pipes and a way to switch between the banks of pipes. Sorta like the Univeral.

Looks like you are an organ builder. Great fun!
