  1. No beef = no vegan, that's how the planet works. But in balance it has to be. I balance the environment by not eating vegan stuff like falafel and chicken and those sort of food. I say just eat the cow and make gelatin and hide glue
  2. And the solution is setup setup and well setup, learning by the vast Zoom videos from VSA nowadays! Except it is not, if you have a wolf you have a wolf and it might be inherent in other fifths or what ever. The solution is to make a powerful violin without THE WOLF. If you need to tame the wolf on a Expensive Strad, just make a big BB.
  3. Marty, You have knowledge in free plate modes! (so do I) The point is not what edge thickness does, but how different density materials has to be for the assembled violin to turn out. It's not complicated, it's knowledge! (BTW rocket science is not complicated, ask Mr. Musk)
  4. It took me sometime to get the strength to give this one a new life. I thought I had to open it and correct it but no. It still has its original mellow sweetest sound! To my surprise the modes hasn't change and are as they have been for over 20 years. Back then I had no understanding of playing and the owner made a new bridge and trimmed the neck. Another lesson for me even this day. This is the best neck I have played on, smooth and easy to reach and find notes. Everything is rounded just right! It's rather thin near nut 23.2 mm. Played it for a week now and my son commented (WTF), why have you been tweaking with your fiddles all this time. This is the best one you have ever made!
  5. My site: www.thestradsound.com based on Google "classic sites" isn't editable anymore (deprecated, have to move it to something else) So I'll use my bench more for awhile.
  6. At least I recognized they are 'top makers'. I also identified they used Zoom. If you are 'top' in other fields you would use Teams BTW, what is the best way to glue two pieces of different type of wood together, I have learnd how, with two pieces of the same wood...
  7. "Top makers", polite discussions for tentative consensus, leading to zero sum game. If everyone agrees all the time, not much takeaways. Although interesting to follow.
  8. What about the wood available for him?
  9. This is a statement that can be verified!? When I stress a plate by increasing the hight (especially top) M5 goes up and M2 goes down (not too much, but their ratio increases significally)
  10. This is a simple one, just do a lousy job and you are there
  11. How does it sound? ....... how stupid kind of question? Cross grain strenght is not about how does it sound! Cross grain strength is about "real crorss grain strength", measured in speed of sound and real stiffness! Higher arch will skew "cross grain strength", meaning M2 will look lower than real cross grain strength, compared to M5/M2 difference!
  12. Thank you Rue! I do not know who you are, but I can see that you care! And I was about to shot down and go to bed, I will sleep better to night because you care.... Good night!
  13. I'm up again late and will go to sleep Zzzzz Good night!
  14. Hence my strange posts lately!
  15. I love this! It is understandable and David, if you forgot everything (any all posts ever, and mine too?) I know you have love! I have carried a lot of my love ones to the final rest (meaning actually carried) I have had a very, very tough time!
  16. It's really hard to stay awake to communicate with US people, and by the time we are awake they do not respond, because they sleep all the time, don't they?
  17. Sorry! You are in fact the engineer I thought you were, my misstake!
  18. Well Anders, You are data driven so you might not appreciate hard "hands on data". It's 5-12 Hz between 2-4g of common hardened (not soft) colophony, linseed varnish
  19. No you didn't! Engineers I use to manage had one thing in common, they where incapable of lying. Meaning you are not an engineer?
  20. Super un interesting area, because everyone is running into, where is my scouping out iron (so I can do M2/M5 in perfect relation and get the super/ awesome Cremonese violin) What about learning - What is an Old Cremonese sound, function, feel, playability and sound again? It’s all over the place The Soil, Titian is very different from The Plowden and Willemotte.
  21. Well, What we should really do is go to bed and let those emigrants on the other side of the Atlantic carry on.... Let them figure out the difficult stuff (maths, RPM ... etc). The Sun will take care of it eventually... Good night
  22. Recording un-hollowed plate data is not too difficult. When you have done a few you will get a pretty good idea of what kind of wood you are dealing with, even at an early rough stage. To OP, you could probably have 50 Hz higher modes even with lower volume. If you now took it down to 400 cm3, the modes would be too low and the hollowed out plate's M5 could possibly end up 330 Hz with normal graduation. With higher arch and more extreme look you would get a lighter plate with lets say 350 Hz for normal graduation
  23. Couple of years ago when I started to make varnish I read a lot of threads and posts on MN about HAZARD, DANGER, CAUTION -> ACID ..... Bull sk....t I limed and so, too hard and water soluble.... What kind of colophony and linseed oil are you guys using over there? What I use needs 50/50 in a pan 30 min( literally both ingredients cold right from the shelf in the pan) -> varnish that lasts for a hundred or three years... what am I missing?
