Paul Read Posted July 6, 2020 Share Posted July 6, 2020 One of the few positives of this Covid episode is that I have had the time to essentially clear my backlog of restorations and customer repairs (lots of broken customers...). I am now on to the ones I have been avoiding. I am looking at two 32-button Lachenal rosewood instruments for restoration, Instrument one has one badly broken end and the other end is a crude home-made end plate. The other instrument has one good end and the other end is damaged but also of a much finer fretwork. I have been waiting in hope of replacement ends turning up on otherwise scrap instruments but I am moving towards the idea of having new ends cut. Is there anyone out there who already has a digital drawing for Lachenal end plates who would be ready to sell the program as I am in touch someone who is equipped to do the work but it seems a shame to go through the process again if the work is already done. Finally, I have a beautiful 30-button instrument that is completely missing one end (one end, bellows and reed pans are present). Does anyone have a full Lachenal end only, to sell? Thanks.
