  • Handy TG Number Guide

    I made this guide to help identify terminal numbers on the TG easily.
    If I need to recap a TG, the terminals need to be identified so that I can document the outputs.
    Also, if I need to find a particular terminal that corresponds to a tone, I need to know the numbers.
    So, I came up with this aid.
    NOTE that this is for a majority of TG, but not the older sequentially wired ones.
    There are 4 cards that correspond to the 4 sections of terminal strip. It takes a second to put the card over the terminals to identify them.
    This also identifies which terminals are not wired to either pedal or keyboard wire harness.

    I tried to upload the file here, it is a .oxpx format which should be able to be opened in any windows computer, but I got an error message that uploading this format was forbidden. I had to save it in that format, because for some reason any other format, like ,pdf would not print without changing the actual size and this needs to print exactly 1:1 to maintain spacing. It was drawn in AutoCad, and there are very few options to save in any format other than .dwg, and that format is not easily translated into any other format easily or accurately.
    If anyone wants a copy of this file, just send me a PM and I would be happy to share it with you. Worst case, I am also happy to mail an actual paper copy, just like the old days;-)

    I think you mean oxps not oxpx. Frankly, I've never heard of this format, but apparently it's a superset of Microsoft's .xps format that I am familiar with. .oxps files can be opened in MS Word under both Windows and OSX or viewed on current Windows versions with Microsoft's XPS viewer.

    I can add upload support for this filetype, but I need to have an idea of typical file sizes in order to do so.

      You are indeed correct, it is .oxps
      This file is 65kb, not very big.

        Thanks. I've added attachment support for xps and oxps file formats. You should be able to upload those files as attachments now. If one is on a Mac, the aforementioned MS Word will open these files, and there are also third party apps for Macs and Linux. Support for these filetypes is baked into Windows beginning with Windows 7 through the XPS viewer app, as well as MS Word.

      Attached is the file for the number cards.
      Note that there is a reference dimension that needs to be verified. If the length is not 7 1/8" the tabs will not line up.
      It should work if you just double click on the file after downloading.
      When I opened it in Word, for some reason the cards were not the right size.

      I print this out on card stock, and cut out with my X-acto.

        Very cool and useful indeed. Thank you so much!!! This will save time of looking it up on the computer, then back to the organ and repeating... Awesome.
        I rebuild Hammonds and Leslies. Please visit my website. tbstonewheels.com It's still in the works but is up and running. My personal setup is a Model A # 2203 with Trek II percussion, 122RV and 2 31h's. One is fitted with two speed motors and the other a Hamptone. Also sporting a working Vibratone 30A # 326.

          If you made the drawing in autocad, can't you print a pdf? If it's large enough that it needs to be printed on multiple sheets of paper, can you set up the veiwports in the "paper space" to print at the correct scale? All of my final autocad drawings are sent as pdfs at this point (though I seldom use autocad anymore).

            Hey Bobmann, that is a fantastic rig. It's great there are still folks passionate about restoring things like the Hammonds that are works of art and marvels of technology. I just entered the Hammond realm I finally found a m111 on Craigslist for $75 in driving distance and got a bonus m101 for an additional $75. Fella needed money and room. Both actually really great condition and working. We're stored properly. Any way when I saw this post I figure you may be just the right guy to help. One has two keys have no tone on one drawbar when I go through the test of each key on each drawbar that I learned on YouTube . I have no clue where to check for the remedy. I work on repairing many other electrical items old and new. Been getting into some tube gear repair for a few years so I know a little troubleshooting. Thanks for any direction. Chuck

              As the purpose of this topic was to provide a handy chart of terminal numbers, the discussion on output levels and other TWG subjects has been moved to its own topic.
