Print your own concertina and parts at home


Recommended Posts

There were long and protractedd discussions sometime back started by someone who wanted to cut and carve their own concertina fretted ends. I cant find who but I think the end result was great for their moral determination but had some shape issues.

I did suggest at the time one could print the ends (probably using Chinese design engineers to cut cost and get latest) but as usual I was too far behind the herd and it dropped by the way

But here is some more info in this area - would get round all those non standard bit problems like the Victorian bolts....

I think I may have contributed to a discussion on printing concertina parts.

Now that the prices of 3D printers are falling, they are beginning to look viable for home/small workshop use.

Which bits could be best printed, and which bits made by more traditional techniques?

the great point he makes (for carving) is that you are NOT cutting wood awayy to get your final product, but you are adding layers of wood and building on each layer to reach your final product from your drawing, or your scanned Jeffries or Chinese melodeon... so, much less 'wasteful'. I wonder how much amboyna ends or turtle shell would cost..........

My old mate Dave used to have a concertina which someone had knitted for him out of wool.

 

(Don't suppose this adds much to the discussion, but it was rather fun).

I bet he was rather sheepish about getting it out at sessions in case he got laughed at...........

actually I should apologise to Chris for jumping him on this; such repartee is more down his master;s lane ... baa baa baaa!
