  1. Ballpoint pens should have been well established at this time, but the note is done with a fountain pen- another clue for academia??

    Linings overlap

    I've been under the impression that continuous linings indicate the use of an outside mold in making.
  3. a man a plan a canal panama
  4. Definitely been sanded & revarnished; also the scooping of the f-wings looks like the work of an amateur antiquer.
  5. I think I mentioned this on a thread years ago, but I have always used bottled, regulated compressed air, rather than a compressor. They are absolutely silent and are easily & inexpensively re-filled. A bottle would last me many months or even a year or more.
  6. Excellent advice, Martin. One should hone their ability to judge character- it can serve one well in many ways. For instance, when shopping for a used vehicle, I tend not to look at the vehicle so much (except for outwardly visible and obvious things), but rather, my judgement of the seller, figures heavily in my decision whether or not to purchase.
  7. Yunibear- Why not partner with a reliable "private" dealer in the U.S., and import instruments of known quality and price, rather than make the trip(s) yourself?
  8. Maybe you could decoupage it with sheet music...would make an interesting wall-hanging.
  9. It's what my old boss used to say about my work...
  10. Why is the "S" done by hand in both instances?

    Violin ID please

    I think there is some terrible camera distortion here.
  12. Are we all seeing the same ad(s), or do we see ads that google (or whoever) selects based on our individual search history, and somehow tied to our pcs?
  13. Are we all seeing the same ad(s), or are the ads we see 'tailored' to our search history?
  14. I see them too- I think someone made a pact with the Devil.
  15. I meant Thorval (without the "d")
  16. I believe it reads Thorvald Forstenberg; I think the "x" is actually a "t"
  17. But, the beautiful edgework..........
  18. It looks, to me, like a heavy "bead" of some type of glue was laid around that joint, & the whitish lines may have resulted from it's drying.
  19. Moderators have to be so impartial. I read: Ummm...really? Grammar debates? Come on, Jacob.
  20. The large square areas can be calculated with straight measurements, then the remaining "odd" areas can be measured with a planimeter. Accuracy is advertised as 0.2% Several measurements should be made, and the total (added-up) result should be divided by 3 in order to get best accuracy.
  21. Would a planimeter make a precise enough measurement?
  22. It would be interesting if someone would photoshop the back, to see what it would look like with the wings switched.
  23. Oh, Martin, for Cripes' sake.
  24. In some cases, non-typical carved heads, etc. (as opposed to scrolls) were made from other woods, for ease of carving, and/or aesthetic reasons, and grafted onto maple necks. Also, mass produced, machine-carved scrolls and heads were grafted on.
