  1. Flood Damaged/Moldy Instruments

    here is the msds info, Skin Contact: After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin. Cold water may be used. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Serious Skin Contact: Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek medical attention I used some for fleas one time and did not vacuum under my desk completely, I was getting contact with the skin on my feet , it took about a year for the skin to grow back. that was way more than you would get with what you are doing, but I thought I would just add my personal experience , wiki is not accurate info.

  6. 5 string

    i ended up using a viola case , which is not a problem for me and not that much bigger than a violin case . I think it also depends on what music you are playing, I use the c quite a bit for melody lines and with a pitch shifter I get a cello sound . I do americana in a duo with guitar, but rock 5 stingers do quite a bit more with effects.
  7. 5 string

    5 stings seem to vary between who is making them . I made my pegbox longer and the nut wider.

      Oh yeah. I forgot lol. It's a pattern I got from Jonathan Cooper while in Maine for a violin making class. I'll give you the usual measurements as well as a few pics after work today.  Sorry I forgot again.

  14. Power carver for hogging maple, the round one of this set . I just tried this out on the last back , just the outside, it was very controllable cut very smoothly, no kickback and cut little beads of wood as opposed to sawdust. I will try it on the inside next time and take more off on the outside next time. It took about 10 minutes with almost no effort. not that I would recommend it for this person, but since the topic has gone off a little ,
