  1. I forgot to mention that two of the stop tabs are broken and will need new ones made. They can be simply made from a piece of hardwood with two drilled holes. I received it this way and was told by the person I bought them from that they also received it from Cremona Tools that way. It didn't bother me because it's an easy fix. In fact I just broke one on the cradle that I use from pushing the gouge too hard. I think I'll replace all of them with aluminum when I get time. Here are a few photos...fiddle in first photo not included...
  2. I have one B&C ball clamp that I bought from a fellow maker in Australia. Condition is NEW, never used......Asking $350.00 I also have the B&C violin and viola counter forms that bolt to the ball clamp. These are also NEW never used and purchased from the same person in Austrailia. Asking $120.00 for violin and $140.00 for viola counter forms. Will ship free anywhere in the lower 48 states. For international shipping I will provide a quote. https://www.cremonatools.com/controforme.html

  5. Joe, What's the purpose of the added glycerin in the video? Do you think cooking the break out is equal to washing it out?
  6. Cool idea if you build cello's and basses... or guitars...
  7. I can see the advantage of a long comfortable handle. I don't build cello's so I won't need too long of a handle. Didn't you also imbed a chunk of lead into the ball end?
  8. Thanks for the dimensions and photos Jim. I have a friend who owns a lathe.
  9. Love, love iron Mike's work. He is a true Artist and Craftsman.
  10. Thanks Evan... His raw linseed is really cloudy isn't it? My raw AllBack oil is very clear to begin with. What is the purpose of the added Glycerin? I'll have to try this and see how it dries. Interesting video.
  11. Nice handle, unfortunately I don't own a lathe. Perhaps I can salvage an old chair leg. Got a picture of Jim's handle?
  12. Burnish with a length of white Scotch brite pad. Like a shoe shiner does with a cloth. Works well .
  13. Yeah, the handle is pretty short.
  14. Can you post a photo of the scroll?...Looks like a looped one. I've made one like that.
