  1. Thank you! Maestronet is a gem - please keep it that way. P.s. I use the principle that there are a finite number of seconds that I am willing to spend on looking at Ads. Therefore, the fewer the Ads the more time I would be prepared to devote to each.
  2. Is it just me being lucky or are others experiencing the delights of posts being bookmarked by Ads. Refreshingly, the Ads are for maple wood etc. and not for Russian dolls etc. Nevertheless, It is making the Maestronet experience unenjoyable.
  3. FWIW I bought it recently to fix hard plastic - crap. So, one of the claims is suspect (in my hands). I think one problem may be the lack of UV penetration to cure the adhesive inside a crack.
  4. Also, the maker went too far with the inside arching at the C bouts leaving gaps between lining and back.
  5. Squirrel Guard - a mandatory requirement.
  6. Soft black-brown can look good, especially when the shaft and head are congruent. I burnish the shaft with well-used fine sandpaper (1000 or higher). Nose grease is cheap, organic, renewable and, in my case, non-GMO.
  7. You do know, don't you, what happened to the 'Cold Fusion' delusion?

    I should be keen on a Linseed Oil Ground discussion Group - aka 'LOG-dG".
  9. There is also the practical consideration of the position of the bassbar and the width of the bridge needed to cover the bassbar appropriately.
  10. Yes. If tempted, wait for FOREX on November 1, 2019.
  11. If in UK: https://luthiers-bench.com/ The iron and strap are lovely tools.
  12. Super colour - how does it look between 2 glass slides?
  13. If you place a drop in a sunbeam, does the drop dazzle like a ruby? I am wondering whether you would get a redder (less brown) hue with cooking at a lower temperature. Temps and times of your cooking?
  14. Perhaps refined by 'distribution of the weight across the plate'.
