  1. A coat of bondo, and a bit of epoxy, and...
  2. I forgot epoxy. The old version, cutler’s cement, was made from resin and iron oxide.
  3. JB Weld... I’ve had two unopened tubes for ten years. Bondo... nope. Blob-dough. Gorilla Glue... failed on my projects. https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/linear-expansion-coefficients-d_95.html
  4. This is a bit better... the light spots are the bubbles. Follow the grain lines for the big picture.
  5. We have some of this in maple flooring. It only has the big blisters. Overall, the wood is low quality—maybe silver maple. Conversely, the oak flooring is top notch with good grain contrast. Both woods were laid over the original yellow pine. I couldn’t get any depth/contrast in the photo, you have to follow the grain.
  6. The only thing that makes the writing German(ic) in my opinion is the capitalization in the gothic script. That’s clearly fractur. Gothic was popular in London and New York. Different capitals. The rest is ordinary business hand of the era.
  7. I noticed that the ink in the date appears different from the rest, that the writing of the whole is “Italian/business hand,” and is likely later than the alleged late.
  8. Unless the maker had a scanner and ink jet printer... in the 1920’s...
  9. Your end pin is missing its removable pitch pipe. No kidding.
  10. I think the finish colour is called Swan lake, but my French is a little rusty. No madder.
  11. I like the idea of double doors in the back, for setting the sound post. Or is it an ash dump?

    Cucumber!

  13. According to the VAR certificate, it's French. It says something about blockology and hands-on review.

    Laurel or Yanny?

    The interesting bit being the clip that isolates the high and low frequencies... Not the dress colour.
  15. http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-44136799 A high vs low frequency puzzle.
  16. I have seen top and back casts. The bridge dents are deep!
  17. How about i think we can afford these if everyone donates a Bitcoin.

    Laberte Label?

    It's still good handwriting.
  19. I had trouble matching the cast to the ct scan. Although excellent overall, the edges of the plate casts are not well defined.
  20. Thanks! I usually only get negative feedback.
  21. If FedEx doesn't print at the specified size, that's not a file problem.

    Laberte Label?

    The border looks fuzzy. Stylistically, the handwriting looks like I would expect for 1921, but the ink seems very black and fresh.
  23. Hi, I did two types of drawings of forms: from existing forms, and from ct scans of instruments. The Kreiser is taken from a ct scan showing the ribs just above the back. I'm not a medical imaging specialist, so I can't account for the discrepancy. There is cm scale in the drawing to help avoid printing errors.
