Hammond T102 – Restoration and Modification

After much debate I decided to buy another Hammond. With a limited budget I couldn’t expect much and, as it turns out, didn’t get much. This is the story of this rather long journey from buying, restoring and modifying my Hammond and ending up with an instrument that I’m really happy with (although still modifying).

Part 1 – Let’s find a Hammond

Part 2 – The bad, the worse and the ugly – Nice from far but far from nice. 40 years of sludge to clean off.

Part 3 – Things that go bang in the night – making the organ safe. Replacement of the motor run capacitor.

Part 4 – Down and dirty with the drawbars – cleaning, repair and an application of petroleum jelly
