View Full Version : Transporting a spinet

another important question is in my head about precautions to be taken for shipping a Hammond.
I've heard the most important thing to do is 'To lock down the Tone Generator' but, could somebody explain me (with details, please) how must it be done for Hammond M3?
Thanks for advance

Remove the back if yours has one to access the TG area.
Look under the TG and you will see bolts handing down with a strange looking washer. Tighten those bolts up tight with the strange looking washer until they no longer are loose. That locks down the TG. Don't forget to unlock them again once located. If you loosen the bolts too much they will come out. No problem, just put them back in a little with a few turns and leave them loose.

Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation, Mr. Ed.
Now the prolblem is that the organ came to my home two days ago and it's too late. I have noticed that there are some drawbars not working with some keys. I think it is probably for this, because the M3 is incredibly like new.
However I hope it will not be a serious problem with an schematic wire (I don't know, it's my first time!)
One more time, thank you.

Hi all, just offering my 1 1/2 cents worth after getting an M3 recently.</p>
On my M3 (I just tonight realized) the bolts were tightened up; and the organ had been used a lot in this fashion. I loosened them up, so that the whole carriage just rides on its springs, and I can't TELL you how much 'quieter' the whole organ is; start up is quiet, and 'Run' is just a light hum.</p>
So make sure you loosen those bolts up after moving the organ :-)</p>
