drekth Posted February 22, 2014 Share Posted February 22, 2014 I'm a new Member...so Hello to Everyone. I have a query re Louis Lachenal's early Instruments. I am aware of course that his instrument endscrews are machine threaded affixed into tapped endplates in the bellows ends, but........... is anything known about his very early Instruments? Did he utilize wood screws? I have recently acquired a 48 Button English which has such end screws and to all intents is a Lachenal with the usual internal reed labels. The valve levers look like 'Lachenals'. Stamped internally with the usual 'L' and 'R', but no 'stamped' maker's number. Instead there is a double digit number hand written in old fashioned style on the Bellows and Reed Pans. I have attached a couple of photos and would welcome any comments please - Is it a Lachenal?
