Dear all -
I have made a significant change to my building series on my site: added a small, menu on top of every page.
This way one can freely jump between sections - no more "Next, Next, Next...", though the "Next" and "Previous" links are still there.
I hope to have some new stuff up tomorrow - things have are moving at snail speed, clamped down by various demands from job, family, and stuff like that.Bushing felt
Has been difficult. I want thin, vowen felt. Even special fabric-only shops go blank when they hear the word "vowen".
But again I was amazed to find rescue just around the corner.
When I got far enough to understand that that kind of felt is the stuff pianos are made of (plus a few things more) I realised that we have a real live piano repairer in town. And sure enough: he kindly donated a strip of wonderful, thin, red vowen felt (he called "Kashmir felt, "garnishing felt" (lit.) or Simply "Red felt" (He-henk).
Why am I so exited about this? Because...
In order to make the bushing boards I need to have the felt, 'cos then I will know the size of the button holes and thus the size of the button holes in the end plate and in my "Tedrowed" aluminum dummy end plate that will hold the buttons when I set the action. And then
I can let Roy, the black-belt tool maker around the other corner prepare another one of his super drills, so the bushing board doesn't splinter when I drill it. That's
Another thought has struck me during these months - have there even been any attempts to make sort of "Concertina Innards Terminology Manual"? Because I found that I am using words I have picked up and learned along the way, and add new ones when I don't know. Any thoughts here?
Hopefully I can add another page tomorrow, provided I get some of these done:
I just love jigs(awing)...
