  • Tips for a Hammond on laminate "wood" flooring?

    Hi all, I'll be picking up my Hammond CV and Leslie 21H sometime in the next couple weeks, and started thinking about what will happen when I need to oil the organ. When I had my C2, it wasn't up against a wall, so I had full access to the back, but this time it will have to go against a wall, so i'll need to move it away from the wall periodically to oil it. I'd prefer to just be able to gently slide it rather than have to get the roll-or-kari dollies out each time. In any case, I'm also concerned about leaving dents and scratches in the floor.

    Do any of you have recommendations on things I can attach or set on the bottom of the organ's metal "feet" to prevent it from damaging the laminate? I've used stick-on felt pads before but I'm concerned they would just fall off.

    Thanks!

      I puy havy felt strips on the bottom of the organ, bench, and pedal box.
      Got it at Home Depot, it comes in either strips of 1"x4" or a sheet, and are about 1/4" thick, adhesive on one side.
      Been there for years and have not dislodged and have not scratched my hardwood floor.

      In theory, there is no difference between theory and reality.
      In reality, there is.

        I have always used stick on felts one my various organs over the years. Assuming that your floor is kept reasonably clean, it makes it easy to push (nay glide) the organ from place to place. This strategy has always worked for me - I do it with all furniture or items that will come into contact with the timber floors in the home.

      I have something even largerl and heavier that I do this with and I use two appliance dollies. But felt might work better in your case.

        Personally i tjink one can be a litttle bit cautious with felts. Gravel can stick to it and also scratch the floor. Just a thought.

          I have the large cups with felt bottoms under my B3, Use smaller cups and felt under the bench legs, Felt runners under the pedal board. Surprising how easy this 300# plus monster moves on the felt!.

            I had thought of those myself, but as the C series organs don't have "legs" like the B series, I'm not sure those will work out. I think I'll try the big felt strips; I'll put them on once the organ is safely inside so I shouldn't pick up any gravel along the way.
