  1. That’s a good looking instrument Margaret , good luck on your concertina journey!
  2. I asked Mr CMB a question last night, by EBay email ,no response till now . ......... it looks very nice, as you say if it’s for real.
  3. Hello, it went to Barleycorn concertinas , sorry for late reply
  4. Brilliant! What a very useful metronome, thanks for posting
  5. Hello folks , Des , I will post some photos soon . the dimensions are very similar to my 30 key Crabb Anglo . Yes the 20 key Jeffries is light and very quick, sound wise can’t tell the difference between it and its bigger siblings. Clive , thanks for the tip, the soft solder repair looks old and is very solid. Im being fussy, but I like my instruments to be at their best both cosmetically and sound wise. 🙂 At a guess I’d say that the extra hole in the side was used to hold a small music stand, I’ve seen similar things on old “Sally Army “ instruments.
  6. Another thought, anyone know what the metal ends are made of ?
  7. Hello all , I have a very nice Jeffries 20 key Anglo, it’s a lovely thing to play , light and fast . Although it’s cosmetically quite nice , one end has had a few repairs to the metal work , these have been done with what appears to be standard “soft solder” . The integrity of the repair is sound but looks horrible ( see photo) could anyone recommend either a way I can effect a better repair , or someone who would undertake this kind of of work for me ? thanks in advance
  8. It’s gone , sold elsewhere folks.

  9. Hello folks , still looking for a new home
  10. Hello folks, I am wondering if any one has a drawing/ picture of a spring making jig , I’ve got some broken springs on my old Lachenal I'm using.025” phosphor bronze wire . thanks
