  1. 16" viola, where from?

    Looks 80's hofnerish..usually see them with scherl & Roth or pfretschner labels
  2. removing button from screw

    Jerry is correct on this. It is a 5mm dowel with a center hole to fit over screw. It will fit inside the nipple recess of most buttons. I use it as needed after assessing the button.
  3. removing button from screw

    I use a pop rivet gun.. They come with various size collets. Works like a charm...unless the maker uses a threaded tang like, I believe Rondey Mohr does...
  4. Tape to prevent 3d position sweat spot

    This is the former instrument of a pit player for NY met opera - a lot of pizz in the pit....
  5. Must be an outgoing "people person" with a high level of playing skill, violinist/ violist preferred - will train the right individual. More information here: http://www.theviolinshopinlincoln.com/employment-opportunities.htm

    "Large, prosperous-looking shops" - Big hat, no cattle syndrome comes to mind...

    Manfio! How did you fair with your instruments at Dixon and Stein? Did you get them back?
  13. Sharing, borrowing, lending - tools and equipment.

    Truly a Ben Franklin quote: "He that goes a barrowing goes a sorrowing"
  14. Repair Rate Survey

    Sorry if this goes a little off topic.. but seeing that old receipt reminded me of this. Lloyd Kunkel was a "local" Doctor that took to violin making and repair. He would write is repair bills on his script pad. We would joke that you could get a appendectomy and new bridge at the same appointment.
