  1. Dowright, would a Lachenal Anglo No. 172103 date of 1891 approximately?
  2. No, not at all, it was just a light reflection.
  3. Now sold Selling a Lachenal C/G 30-key rosewood Lachenal that I bought as a restoration project but due to the lack of time that I have right now it has to go. The serial number is 160470. It’s in good original condition (unrestored) and shouldn’t be a difficult task to restore because it hasn’t been messed with before, all the original parts are there. It has been stored in its wooden case unplayed for a long time but it’s still playable. The asking price is £1000 or very nearest offer. Will also be advertised on ebay, but I’d much rather sell through this forum and m
  4. Thanks, all the buttons have a similar pressure (apart from one or two) but I’d like to make sure they’re all even.
  5. What device/gauge is recommended to check the key pressure? (and how?) How should any adjustments be made? My springs (brass I believe) are all in good condition but one particular key has a significantly lower pressure than the others. It’s a Lachenal non-riveted action. Thanks in advance Roger
  6. Thanks for the tips, it makes sense however wouldn’t the glue add a little extra height once dry? Also, how thick does the bar (bending tool) has to be? Would a stainless steel ruler work?
  7. Ok I get it now, thanks very much! yes I saw the diagram on the manual but I didn’t quite understand it; it makes sense now. Its time to find a flat steel bar now..
  8. Would anyone kindly share a photo of their bending tool used to bend the lever arms in order to adjust key height, and how exactly is it used? Also, what’s optimum key height above the action plate (when released) for an anglo concertina?
  9. Mere coincidence that 2 55-key crane duets popped up almost at the same time; I was just searching information about the model and found this.
  10. Don’t know the seller but I know that this particular concertina (389) was sold unrestored back in 2011: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/early-lachenal-cranes-duet-concertina-161598198 Browsing on the internet I found that the seller is a member of this forum though he hasn’t been active since November And he also advertised it on ebay back in November 2016: https://picclick.co.uk/LACHENAL-CRANE-DUET-CONCERTINA-No-389-55-232140867616.html and this other website: https://abyhom.co.uk/details/?id=22441&cate=music I just acquired the exact same 55-
  11. Does this work for steel reeds too?
