  1. Hi Would anyone be interested in a full set of short scale/ normal scale Wheatstone reeds from a wheatstone maccann in old pitch...... untouched..... 2% donation to concertina.net if sold here..... ofearghail@gmail.com or 0872800980.... Located in Ireland.... from the 1910/-1925 period.... i'll check what date concertina when i'm home next.....
  2. Hi Felix, I actually did have another Bb/ F Crabb in the last year and Chris Algar did buy it from me again last month, through eBay. Just to clear it up.
  3. Hi Earl, I've tried to send you a message but not luck. I'd be more than happy to have a look at it for you. http://www.seanofearghail.comis my website and my number is there. All the best, Sean (currently in Co. Limerick)
  4. Excuse the poor quality... Ive had to give it back. The reed isnt an actual reed. Just very simliar. Square heel and the clamping very similiar.
  5. Very good. Thanks Stephen. Yes clamping plates were rectangular and had gaps on either side showing the screw threads.... Yes very similar to pictures of nickold reeds. The action looks like crabb though.... But shinny... Might have been replaced... Ill add a picture.
  6. I've come across this concertina that might be of interest to people. Inside i found the stamp of T. Bostock (maker) in it. I know he had a connections with the Crabb family which is very evident. The levers are rounded with the middle flattened and the levers are parallel but rotated by 60 degrees on either end. I'll put up a few pictures of the fretwork..lovely little box. C/g. Just thought it might be of interest. Was it bought from (or in parts) from Crabb and sold on?
  7. Thanks a million guys. Really appreciate the info. Interesting about the 40 keys. I understand that there was a lot of reeds to pack into that space but imagined that they would be the longer scale... But still.. Suppose if the clearance is good it makes a huge difference. Thanks again! If i ever win the lotto... Ill get one of each and compare...
  8. Hi, A question for the experts...... What would the difference have been between 'Steel Reeds' vs. 'Best Steel Reeds' vs. 'Best Tempered Steel reeds' in the Anglo/duet 1920's wheatstone price lists? I know that the long scale reeds were considered the best but would the 'best steel reeds' be long scale reeds as well? I know it has probably been discussed before but i can't find a definitive answer. And unfortunately i don't have one of each to compare.
  9. I was hoping to make a c sharp / g sharp linota copy... Was planning on using salvaged reed frames... But will rethink that as well... Reed pan were my main concern.. If i couldnt do that..there was no point...
  10. Thanks a million Dana. I appreciate the info and the reply. New, new year resolutions made! Plenty reading and researching!
  11. Thanks Chris. More to mull over.... while humming Dr. O'Neill's for the foreseeable future....
  12. Would i be barking up the wrong tree with a little compound table and mini milling machine.. like ...
  13. Interesting idea. I'll definetly look into it. Thanks Inventor.
  14. It was more the cost that was putting me off the CNC but they have come down in price. Anyone have any home friendly versions?
  15. Hi. Curiousity is getting the better of me.... Would anyone care to share any ideas on a modern take on the lachenal / wheatstone router? I've seen a few ideas on previous threads but im trying not to go down the cnc route....?
  16. If anyone is looking for a set, or spare brass lachenal reeds i'm setting a salvaged set here on eBay.... http://www.ebay.ie/itm/-/201494632253? Happy new year everyone!
  17. Now gone. thanks for all the questions. Seán Ó Fearghail
  18. May be sorted.. thanking everyone who got in contact.....
