    About violin bow rehair

    Use a gauge for the hair, counting is pretty inefficient and inaccurate. There should not be any gaps. When first trying to master rehairing, getting an even ribbon of hair is a great goal. Increasing the tension and amount of hair slightly on the playing side can greatly enhance the performance, more or less based on the playing style of the musician. It is similar to teaching violin students to play in tune based on a piano; while at first this is good, in practice it is not the best scenario for a violinist.

    The nut you refer to is accessible in seconds by removing the two screws that hold the switch. Is the switch not attached with screws on our model?

    Probably not, but clearly this man was quite the thinker as well.

    Defective lamps

    Yes, I have 11 LC1A lamps in the workshop, the first of which I purchased back in 1990 at the U of M property disposition store where it was probably used for many years before I got it. The others, I have had to replace one switch 10 yrs or so ago, otherwise they are used 6 days a week; the youngest being 5 or 6 years old. I would also be interested in learning how they were assembled incorrectly as I have never had a problem.

    DIY screws for bows. Question for eyelets.

    He is a bow maker. I assume he is the person responsible for first marketing the screw. Panhaleux Jean-Marc makes bows for vln,vla,vlc restores bows for vln,vla,vlc address 16 Rue St. Jacques - 59800 - Lille France

    DIY screws for bows. Question for eyelets.

    FYI, a Panhaleux screw is appropriate size steel stock threaded on one end. The threaded end is cut to the appropriate length to match the length of the mortise plus the extra bit that will be spun down for the second hole. Then the unthreaded end is cut to match the length of the first hole plus the extra bit that goes into the button, which is then squared for insertion.

    I have made both eyelets and screws back when we did not have access to Panhaleux screws. If you wanted To have a screw fit accurately, it is what we had to do. Never from hardware screws, it is the wrong tool for the job.

    Bridge shape to suit music style?

    Yeah, if the heart rate goes up and they get all excited they might learn a second song.

    Yeah, and keep them off my lawn!

    Bridge shape to suit music style?

    I am with the consensus; if the instrument is set up well it works. But I must say, if an “old time” player cannot play because of the set-up, I would consider it a gift to society.

    Neck graft caul material

    Got it, there again we still use the dental compound. Spending time with Philip P. at Oberlin really drove home how much things changed at the shop over time.
