  1. Thank you guys for the useful information. Just awaiting for the valves to turn up from CGM then I will be making a start. List: wood, wood glue, wax resin, valves, valve glue. Maybe refurbish bellows once I have everything else ready.
  2. Thank you Alex. That is a great help. Just need to find out where the reeds go now. Lol.
  3. Retirement project. Never even held one before let alone try to repair one. A 20 key Klingenthal Concertina made in the Republic of Germany. Bought it from a guy who had never used it so it was stored in a garage. Consequently the left hand side internals have all come adrift. The wooden construction not a problem it is the reeds. See picture. It probably wouldnt have been a problen if they were just all vertical but five are horizontal and I havent a scooby do what they are. In a word HELP! I pressume the wood to wood is wood glue and wood to reed is wax but what wax, is it bees wax?
