IF YOU WANT TO MANUFACTURE YOU WILL NEED TO EVALUATE YOUR SKILLS.

1. BE GOOD AT GEOMETRY, DRAWING AND MEASUREMENTS.

2. YOU NEED EXCELLENT WOODWORKING SKILLS AND INVENTIVENESS TO MAKE MASTER COPIES AND JIGS AND ASSEMBLY BOARDS. (a)CUTTING AND MAKING BELLOWS CARDS, BUTTERFLIES AND DIAMONDS IN LEATHER. WOODWORKING SKILLS FOR MAKING BELLOWS FRAMES AND ACTION BOARDS, THE REED PAN i.e. THE SIGNBOARD AND KEYBOARD.

THERE ARE MORE THAN 1500 PARTS IN A 40 KEY OCTAGONAL CONCERTINA.

 

IF YOU ARE SERIOUS START BY STUDYING AND MAKING REEDS, GET YOUSELF A GOOD KORG TUNER AND BUILD A TUNING BELLOWS.

 

I MAKE YOU THIS FREE OFFER IF YOU WANT TO TEXT ME. I AM IN KWAZULU NATAL, BORDER OF CAPE. I WILL POST TO YOU THE CARDS FOR BELLOWS, FRAMES ETC. ALL YOU NEED TO BUILD 2 CONCERTINA'S. 1 30 KEY HEXAGONAL AND ONE 40 KEY OCTAGONAL INCLUDING MAPLE REED PANS.

 

YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE YOUR OWN REEDS, BUTTONS, LEVERS, SPRINGS AND PADS, ETC.

 

NOW YOU WILL ALSO SEE WHAT IS INVOLVED IN MAKING CONCERTINAS.

 

THE RADIAL SIGNBOARD REED PAN JIGS TOOK 4 AND HALF MONTHS TO MAKE AND CORRECT, NOW IT TAKES 30 MINUTES TO MAKE AND SLOT A REED PAN.

 

FINALLY EVERYTHING MUST BE MADE WITH PRECISION. EXAMPLE BELLOWS FRAME 8 PIECES OF WOOD THE ENDS CUT TO 22.5 DEGREES. 16 CUTS IF YOU ARE OUT BY .01 OF A MM THIS TRANSLATES INTO A 1.6 MM ERROR AND YOUR FRAME WILL BE TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL.

 

MY MOBILE NUMBER IS 079 853 4533.

 

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR NEW VENTURE.
