  1. I do the the same as JMJ suggested.',but use thin crazy glue instead of hot hide glue Extreme care must be taken so as not to get it on the outside surface. Dries quick and is very hard.
  2. On my latest violin there is a bad wolf on the b note .I can correct it by putting a lump of sticky tack the size of a small grape on the upper left lung about 1" in from the edge concave area . Im considering taking the top off and putting a patch under that area but am loath to do so. What are some alternatives that are less invasive. Would appreciate your help/ thoughts. Thanks in advance for your consideration Henry
  3. As an amateur maker i have found that giving attention to weight is more important than messing around with plate tuning. Plate tuning is somewhat like taking your blood pressure,it may be one indication of your health but proper weight is of greater importance.
  4. Thanks Michael, That clears it up ,I occasionally see this term and thot it may mean something other than that.
  5. i frequently see the term" burnt flames" would like to understand what it is and what it is not. Thanks in advance, Henry
  6. What are the contributing factors that cause harshness in a violin?
  7. Thanks Don, I guess i'll work for my normal range of free plate At 350 M5 and 70 g weight see how that works out.
  8. The grain width of 20 to 22 gr per inch. So my question is what shape, hgt, thickness should I shoot for for best results? appreciate your response, Henry

    SG .45?

    I have a piece of fine grained 32 year old spruce top with SG of 45, I'm soliciting your advice on the particulars of how to work with this density. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Henry
  10. Yes, Thanks Davide, Thats what i was looking for.
  11. I was looking for the simplistic version where you just fed in the dimensions and the weight and the answer would come up.
  12. Where can I find an online wood density calculator? There was one online which for some reason has been taken off. Thanks Henry
  13. On a white violin that I strung up I was not satisfied with the neck angle so I decided to take it apart. In the process I broke the button off right in to the purfling line. What are my options? I prefer not to take the back off lest I do more injury if there is another solution. thanks in advance for your responses, Henry
  14. Auto body filler,file and sand to shape and stain or paint to match
  15. correction, I only received 2nd place on tone. No awards on workmenship.
