    Left over piece! What is it?

    I'm repairing an 1891 Estey Reed Organ and am now to the point of putting it back together for the first time. I thought I had labeled all the parts, but I have one wood piece that is not labeled and I can't figure out where it goes. It's 16 7/8 inches long and an inch wide. Beveled on both long edges. There is a narrow felt that runs down one edge the entire length on the under side. The top has two small round felts and two wood spacers that are held on by screws. No hint of any hinges or screw holes for attaching it. Any ideas?

    Finished or unfinished wood, or is it even wood?

    It is unfinished wood. It has a narrow felt on one edge, on what I think is the bottom. On top there is just two small dots of felt and two wood spacers that are screwed on.

    It sounds like you're describing a "Dolce rail"device; it would screw onto a stop mute; when the stop is partway open (dolce/dulciana stop) it forms a small chamber and suppresses any overtones.
