  1. Here's the follow up......cost Cnd $ 56.00 ( ÂŁ31.00) I thought this was quite pricey; in hindsight I should have taken it to a small independant jeweller rather than a province-wide chain. Nice job though............the bottom key, with three dampers, is the repaired one.
  2. And how appropriate today as well.........an homage. Doreen Lofthouse, who has died aged 91, made Fisherman’s Friend cough lozenges into worldwide bestsellers and became one of Britain’s richest women in the process
  3. ...................that's what I thought; but he explained there is very little heat transference up the key....very localised application of heat. I am curious to find out how much I will pay for this modern technology........
  4. Could do Gary, but this is a restoration so got to do it right! Thanks for the help everyone.....just took it to a jeweler who will laser weld a cap on. Will post the result when complete Robin
  5. Dave......all metal and the lower one is a complete unit but the attached image maybe easier to see. Diam =4.5mm
  6. I have a friend living here in Paris who is a very fine composer of tunes in the Ontario fiddle style. I asked him the question about how he felt about other people's interpretations of his tunes. He replied that when he released them they were free and he was intrigued how others would interpret them and flattered that they would. Robin
  7. Can anyone help with the issue of replacing the missing button cap..... I do not have it. (Also never noticed the little holes on the side of the shaft, they are from a Lachenal tenor.) Thanks as always. Robin
  8. This a recording I just did with my melodeon...............it was always our opening, finger - loosening tune in Toronto. There is a majesty to this tune...we played it at a fairly measured tempo. I think it's a glorious session tune ! Robin Chain Cotillion
  9. Haha Jim.........yes , it's #1 in my Toronto trad. English Session book which I know you have ! I heard it first 20 or so years ago here in Paris, Ontario played by an anglo player who lived in Sussex and was visiting............ and he played the 2 part version. During the course of some online research for my session book I discovered the 4-part version on a page of French Cotillions. I was most surprised........and the pleasure comes from the nature of the second two parts. To my ear they give it a Baroque feel to the tune. I was never
  10. Always nice to hear you play Jim...........it's a cracker of a tune. Here is the complete tune with the 3rd and 4th parts for anyone interested ..... (I think you probably know this though and I know you have the attached .pdf !) Robin Chain Cotillion.pdf
  11. Another lovely one from Adrian............ Cuckoo's Nest
  12. This is we played in our Toronto session, if anyone can remember what they were ! Robin Salmon Tails & Rattlin' Bog.pdf
  13. Certainly did enjoy it, Steve, thanks for making it. Robin
  14. Many thanks, Leonard, all sorted now. Worse than you think, Dan......I'm now the squire of the Toronto MM......that is, virtual squire ! Thanks Robin
