  1. Seriously little man...you want to try to make fun of my name? What an f'ing toad you are.....
  2. Oh hardly. I am all over all of our sites, and I do every rehair every time...as it states ON THE SITE!! No wonder you want to be anonymous..
  3. Indeed it is Jacob, which is why you hear that so much. These things are not new or different. Spend more time learning, and less time trying to defend not learning, and you will be much better off..... Toilet cleaner man...you are defending using toilet cleaner on bow hair rather than rehairing....you are supposed to be a professional! Have a little self respect.
  4. Not understanding concepts do not make them stupid. But of course you being anonymous betrays your intentions.... Jacob, it is okay to just not understand a concept. Blaming others for your lack of knowledge about a subject, and criticizing people that have the wherewithal to support themselves seems pretty small...
  5. Thank you for trying Rue. Cleaning bow is is not a good thing to do because it is dangerous to the bow and does not have the desired effect of renewing the hair. Cleaning bow hair with toilet bowl cleaner is not a good thing to do and is monumentally foolish. Cleaning bow hair with toilet bowl cleaner and suggesting others do it is monumentally foolish and irresponsible. Cleaning bow hair with toilet bowl cleaner, suggesting others do it, calling people “stupid” that do not use it, and then blaming others for your monumental foolishness and irresponsibility when you get called on it, is despicable.
  6. Sure, blame your dipshitery on someone else, why am I not surprised. How about dealing with your own ignorance and address the problem of how cleaning bow hair doesn’t help worn bow hair? Better blame it on the French, or your pappy....... take responsibility for yourself.
  7. Water is a problem. It can cause deformation of tips causing them to pop off or leaving them permanently deformed, and it can cause cheek cracks as blocks expand... Alcohol can can cause problems as well with finishes and coating the hair with liquid rosin. The real issue here, is bows need to be rehaired for more reasons than the hair being dirty; in fact it is incredibly rare for that to be the primary reason. As the hair stretches with use, it stretches unevenly which can cause dramatic decreases in performance and even long term damage to sticks that are warped as a result. Spend the money to have a rehair rather than risk long term damage with alcohol, or TOILET BOWL CLEANER......(seriously, a professional telling people to clean bow hair with toilet bowl cleaner? What are you thinking?) you will be much better off, and you bow and your playing will benefit.
  8. Nope, just a guy that has seen what rocket surgeons can do when they do not know what they are doing......
  9. Easy there cowboy, slashing about with toilet cleaner and water is not exactly rocket surgery either....
  10. There are not a lot of problems in life that can absolutely disappear for roughly $75.00.........
  11. It looks like that is not the shaft diameter, but the end diameter. Your bow person should be able to spin one down that fits..it is not a big deal. We do not even use pre-made screws but instead use what used to be called Panhaleux'sp' screws. No worries about the screw, I do not think it deserves the "old" moniker.
  12. Sorry Jeff. I was asked to review this hair maybe a decade ago by the company that imports it for distribution in this country. As I told them at the time, it is truly horrible stuff. It has an uncanny ability to make every string on every instrument sound false. The other big issue for me was at the time the hair was promoted as lasting far longer than real hair, it did not stretch, and was not susceptible to humidity changes. This was problematic as of course it does stretch and therefore stretches unevenly so the supposed benefit of lasting longer was a danger to the bows themselves. At the time, it was also more expensive than real hair so my advice to the distributor was to pass on the product. I also left them with the realization that they are solving a problem that doesn’t exist.....we are not running out of horsehair and horses are not killed to supply bow hair. As far as how the stuff works for rehairing, it is like hairing a bow with fishing line...because it is rehairing a bow with fishing line....except they treat the hair with something that raises the PH. They are probably doing this to hold the rosin better, but it dramatically reduces the time you have to tie a CA knot.....and yes I have have rehaired bows with fishing line. So to bottom line this stuff, it does not rehair like horsehair, it does not sound as good as horse hair, it is more expensive than horsehair, and it puts the bows at more risk than horsehair.....we can address the whole idea behind having a cool way to ignore relative humidity at some other time. I do wish you luck, once again, sorry.
  13. Cool, congrats. Well, I have not only found a few ways to screw this up but downright invented a few too....
  14. Then you do not deal with the feather edge from inside. Keep the frog may oversize where it meets the stick, fit it to the stick, place your silk re-enforcement, and then bring the frog down from the outside. By the time there is a feather edge it has already been re-enforced. JP
