Action face repair

Recommended Posts

I'd been spending ages trying to track and fix leaks on this Jeffries.  It's a great instrument, response was good and there was plenty of air for all uses but there were still sounds of air passing which was bugging me. I replaced the pads, strengthened the springs, checked the bellows 5 times, did a whole load of things before I noticed some tiny pin pricks to the underside of the action face which turned out to be hiding large holes where the wood was so thin that the button pegs were punching through.

 

Here's my fix. I don't think it's particularly elegant, but it seems to be doing the job.  Any thoughts as to how I might have done it better (without replacing the wood completely)?

I do exactly the same, either seal off with glue or plugthe hole.
