Question on action mounting board...


Recommended Posts

On the 73 MacCann Edeophone the action mounting board is a separate piece from the mahogany valve plate. It is made of some softer wood and is badly warped. In addition it was mounted w/ the grain in the same direction as the valve plate. It may have been glued to the valve plate or it may have glued itself when the unit got wet. In any event, it seems to be the source of most of the stress problems.

 

The question at this point is whether to try to restore this plate.....and ask for the same problem in the future (?) .. or make a new mahogany mounting plate and glue (or bolt) it in w/ the grain at right angles to the valve plate....?????

 

Thoughts ??
