Squeaky Pete Posted November 23, 2021 Share Posted November 23, 2021 I have a button to fix for a friend on a rather lovely Wheatstone English. The wooden spigot is broken and I'm not quite sure what to do. My plan was to remove the metal cap, carefully measure the wooden bit, turn and drill a new one and a spare or two and refit. A couple of questions though. I thought it would have been held in place with hot glue, but it looks like it was crimped and the only way is to drill it out. Which means destroying the pattern. It must be a very close grained timber, do I replace it with beech, boxwood, apple or what. Or is it easier to buy a replacement? I'm happy to plough on, but don't want to waste the time I should be spending on repairing my latest Hohner Club box. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
