Square-end reed shoes and valves
Stephen Selby posted a topic in Instrument Construction & RepairOne of my older concertinas - a William Dove (?) around mid-1850s - has square-ended reed shoes and square-cut valves. All other concertinas I have seen have rounded shoes and valves. Is there a technical reason for the rounding? Rounded valves seem more difficult to make.
