  1. You have a Concertina, which is surplus to your needs, nobody plays, needs a new home ? I have a Hammy Hamilton 8 keyed blackwood flute, about 10 years old, which I'd like to exchange for a concertina. This particular flute is often referred to as a "stonker", with a strident, hard bottom D. Hammy is, I believe, retiring from flute making, so here you have an immediate access, no waiting for months. Please check out Hammy's prices before you make an offer. Also be aware that Hammy's flutes are not for faint hearted. I could sell if you want, but I'd as soon exchange for a concertina, of similar value, with hagglng involved. Haggling will be entertained, in fact. Thanks Jim Troy ( It is an Anglo Concertina I'm looking for)

    Thank you Mr Yagi and Mr Dowright, that's what I was looking for originally, an appr. date of make. The pad I mentioned, has taken a dive, again, so I'll just have a look for the Super Glue, and a couple of 6" nails.

    Best I can do with my Lenovo 7'' The blob on the pad thingy, is definitely wax, and that's what I meant as regards what to look for, in the field of waxy supply. Someone nearby who knows about concertinas... You couldn't throw a nine coupler, but you'd hit one. That said, I would like to know the maker and year of this Tipping around with it, I get the feeling it's like playing flat pipes. Everything is in B or C.

    Yes indeed, Gedi, looks identical, even to the odd looking partial shading of the wood. Had an interesting evening applying wax to the pad thingy, on No 1, having stolen bits of wax from a crashed out accordion. Any recommendation as to what to ask for, and which type hardware store, as regards wax for fixings ?

    I have just become the owner of this, so I can start stripping to fix the leaky bits. It does play, although leaking like the new time, but has a nice ould fashioned sound. The buttons on both sides, have a number stamped on each one Should I post pictures of the pan, etc. ?
