'oh Dear, What Can The Matter Be?' in Instrument Construction & Repair Posted December 26, 2015 ...leathers that gave ( for other uses ) been tumbled to long, I have gas dome success wetting them, spreading them flat on a pie the if glass hair died out...Dana, this appears to have been "corrected" by some automatic process as you were typing, generating phrases like "spreading them flat on a pie the if glass hair died out" which are beyond my ability to decipher (I got the "piece of glass" part, but then I get lost). Please go through your post (that you obviously put a lot of effort into and no doubt contains the wisdom of much experience) with an eye toward editing all these irregularities ("I have gas dome success," etc.) so that we may have a clear idea of all you have to say. And Merry Christmas. David, I think the phrase that's eluding you is "hair side out."
