After adding the graphite to the ‘jump scare action’ feature this became too radical. :astonished: It smashed in to the top of the organ so violently that the top parts including the pipes exploded up and off about 8 inches! No pictures, sorry :roll_eyes:

The parts that rapidly disassembled (exploded) were glued back together with epoxy. These were previously just CA glued together.

Then pieces of neoprene tape were cut and installed at contact points to dampen the striking action. See pictures below.

It works and also slightly dampens the plastic noise.

“Play it again, Sam”…

Before the clock chimes Midnight (MTN) when all Halloween tricksters should be tucked into their coffins with aching bellies from eating too many Skittles, here’s a friendly bump in case you missed Erik tickling the ivories… :musical_keyboard::skull::musical_keyboard::ghost:

:v:t4: no triggers intended. Tried my best to match the Erik character from Phantom of the Opera. The hairdo, mouth and teeth, and mask. The book describes Erik with the head and face of a skull so I used local tweekers for a modeling example :grin:
