Updated through online information from John Nolte. -- In Fall of 2009, Nolte Organ Building of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, completely re-leathered the double rise bellows and feeders. The original bottom board of the bellows was split and damaged beyond repair and was replaced with a plywood bottom board. The two top covers were also replaced. A check valve was added to the blower inlet so the organ can be hand pumped. All stopped wood pipes were repaired and had stoppers re-leathered. The Pedal chest was repaired by sealing leaks, re-gasketing bungs, replacing leather nuts and felt washers.
Updated through online information from Topher Doerr. -- I heard a lecture last night which was in part about this instrument and saw the organ opened up with some of its parts removed, as it is receiving some repair work from the Nolte Organ Company of Milwaukee--the lecture was by Mr. Nolte.
The builder did not use opus numbers to identify his work, but the catalog number S-28 was assigned to this instrument by Elizabeth Towne Schmitt and may be used for reference.
