  1. Hi, just a thought that passed through my mind, did wheatstone make any amboyna ended anglos? Has any one ever had one or seen one? forgive my thinking out loud.
  2. I am very reluctant to sell it too but i recently played a jeffries that a friend had and just preferred the weight and also the lay out of it. this is by far one of the top concertinas that i've had but still just the fact that i preferred the jeffries. if i could afford to own two, i would!!
  3. also would consider a trade for a good jeffries.
  4. Hi, Afraid its back for sale again, my 36 button, 1924 linota, metal ends. pictured in my profile. Located in Ireland (Waterford) Restored by Steve Dickinson. +353(0) 87 2800980 or email me ofearghail7@gmail.com. Donation to concertina.net if sold to a member. looking for 6500 ono. thanks Sean
  5. Hi David, spot on! thats it. yeah pity nobody's making similiar ones. I'll just have to keep the eye out.
  6. no i'm afraid thats not the one i'm looking for. it more like the edgley cases.
  7. Hi all, thanks for info. they look very similar to the cases that frank edgley uses i think. i've seen edel fox with one too i think.
  8. Hi, at the weekend i saw a concertina case that was black plastic, with rounded edges and i can find anywhere that sells them. Does anyone know who makes them or where i could get one? they're very tidy and neat. Does any one know what i'm talking about? any info would be great thanks!
  9. thanks guys. No its one i already bought and owned for a few months before i sent it away. I found the receipt and printed out emails from the repairer. Fingers crossed i can sort it now. Thanks for all the info. Sean
  10. Hi, I just got charged 500 euro customs tax on a concertina i got repaired from outside EU. Any one know how i can claim this back? Have a receipt just don't know who to talk to. I'm in Ireland. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Sean
  11. yep thats it. sorry i'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to stuff like that. they are certainly running with grain. but i just found it strange with the different types of wood. Just wondering but would they have used any other types of wood that was out of the ordinary in any other concertinas you may have come across?
  12. Em it could be the model. This one though i think has two reeds at the bottom of the reed pan vertically, the rest are horizontal and one reed inside the outside row of the left side (if you get me) like in the middle of the pan.
  13. sorry having a bit of trouble uploading photos. Yeah it does. seems very hard anyways. i'll keep trying with the photos.
  14. The past few months i've been comparing concertinas and studying the construction of different makes. I've noticed that in an old c. jeffries stamped 38 button anglo that the wood to make the action box is very dark. I originally thought most of the wood was maple but are there other possibilities it could be? A hard mahogany? Maybe its just got darker over time. Also just wondering but could the reed pan / bellows frame be any thing other than maple? Any ways i throw it over to the experts again. Any info greatly appreciated, Sean
  15. Brilliant Chris. thanks a million! great help. And Geoff was kind enough to get in contact too, again. Thanks, Sean
  16. Any one have advice on hand cutting reed slots? Not having the best of luck with it. any one?
  17. Any body know of any where in UK or europe? For posting reasons?
