geoffwright Posted February 2, 2005 Share Posted February 2, 2005 Do we want concertina repairers/makers to stop in business? Yes, of course we do - they are the concertina enthusiasts lifeline. They will only stop in business by carrying out the maximum number of jobs, scheduled efficiently. All concertina makers/repairers want to see more concertinas being played - that is why they do what they do. If there are quick repairs to do, the owner is back playing quicker, if there are new ones to make, it is more efficient to make a number of new ones at once with jigs etc set up (woodwork jigs not 6/8 ones, before the wags jump in). Therein lies the time scheduling problem. It is a fact of life that if you want an immediate concertina, you should buy one, not order one. It is only worth waiting to have one made if you want a specific box making that is not readily available, so it is usually only experienced players who specify their own layout and experienced players usually have more than one box on the go. p.s. I play a Jeffries reconditioned by Dipper and it is my pride and joy. (Everyone else thinks it is too loud) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
