    Iron Rosinate

    My post Brandmair research indicates that the most likely source for the amounts and types of protein indicate that the object was made by soiled human hands,

    Mr Alf's letter to Vuillaume: recipe for Strad's varnish?

    The Strad Varnish Book study by Brigitte Brandmair and "The Nature of the Extraordinary Finish of Stradivari's Instruments" by J.P. Echard. Each confirms the others findings about the varnish. on we go, Joe

    red flames

    Mike, As we saw on this maple, when you change the angle, the red stripes go gold and the gold stripes go red. This is contradictory to any red pigment or particulate deep in the wood. Same goes for stains. Joe

    The Scroll

    I just received the recent edition of the "Scroll", the magazine produced by the Violin Society of America. I am very impressed! A wonderful article about being a woman coming up in the trade by Marilyn Wallin. A valuable discussion which needs to be front and center. A continued illustration of a neck reset by Mathew Noykos. Excellent instruction accompanied by step by step photographs. The chronicles of Harry Marison..scientist and cello he brought us scans of the Christiani Cello of Antonio Stradivari. And...much more. Congratulations to the VSA and the people [volunteers] who make this publication possible. Get some binders folks, this publication will become a well referenced addition to your library. on we go, Joe

    High resin content varnish

    I use comparison by weight of the processed materials. The resin is raw, not colophony. The varnish can be made using unprocessed raw resin with a very different result. Joe
