  1. Please let us know if that worked.
  2. All in perfect shape, $185. moving this weekend so If I have to pack it I won't be selling it. Sorry photos dont do it justice. Brazillian rosewood.
  3. Tony Mason who makes Crowson's tailpieces may have some sets. You can ask them as to the production situation.
  4. sold, he got a hell of a deal. That was one hell of a machine. Sorry I couldn't set it up and use it in the new shop.
  5. Jeff, Why did you have a separate heat source? Doesn't the split heat also?
  6. You can't seriously be giving Burgess shit for where he once worked?
  7. Maybe if the bow blank came from the ballast of logs picked up in Brazil for a pirate ship which was captured from Johnny Depp and towed to France, where Tourte was searching the Quays for wood and saw the blood stain on the log from Depp and..... Well you get the picture. BTW Bob Shallock never worked per se in Pt Townsend, but he apprenticed here in Portland with Martin Devillier and was a close associate with Charles, Stephane and all the earlier members of the group. He facilitated Noel's apprenticeship with Charles. We were all Buddies in the Day. Still are. There is still wood around. It helps certainly to be connected. I'm in the process of getting a USFW permit to prove that I owned the wood pre-CITIES declaration, using notarized photos and bills of sale. It will hopefully allow me to sell the wood internationally that reallistically I won't be using. Buyers would much rather have a cut stick than a board so they can feel the stiffness and see the runout. Cutting wood for any instrument out of a board is a blood pressure raiser. You want maximum yeild and little waste but if you cut it too close you can ruin two pieces or more forever.
  8. Wait till you see how long That lasts.
  9. I'll bet he two stcicks were of similar ages. Wood from the same tree varies in place, cut and quality. Workmanship also varies in terms of year, depression, financial pressure, divorce, desease, and the dreaded "human condition". Good cars get flat tires, and despite the chronicelers of individual makers, no two bows by the same maker are alike or equal even if the wood comes from the same tree. .
  10. Ever see him when he was younger? Hell, ever see Me, when I was young.
  11. Artsy Theatre? Are they naked?
  12. Two owners besides me, no industrial use. Pristine. Moving soon and don't have space in the new shop. asking $1,200, worth a lot more. Portland Oregon location.
