    Hey Andreas, This might be if interest for your next top, I have had really great results using Michetschlager's method. You really cant tell the difference next to a carved top. https://helenviolinmaker.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Dartington-talk-transcript-with-pics.pdf

    Dropped neck angle on a new instrument.

    Good point, I hadn’t even considered the fact that the neck would then be further in than the button... thanks Jerry

    Dropped neck angle on a new instrument.

    I removed the neck, I have a 6.2mm overstand currently, So I wil just deepen the mortise slightly at the bottom, and set the neck a tiny bit deeper so I can adjust the neck to button angle accordingly.

    Fingerboard still has a nice hollow in it, and I can’t see any sign of the top deforming...yes that was my thoughts, I would expect the neck to come loose.

    We need a "Like" button on Mn.

    Yes... and people just end up ‘liking’ your post instead of actually interacting. Happens all the time on other social media sites... “my cat just died” “Like” ”like” “like” im not a fan!

    Dropped neck angle on a new instrument.

    A customer left one of my violins from 2013 in a hot car. The varnish was damaged, but easy to fix. But it the main issues is that the neck angle has dropped to around 24mm. My my first thought was to just unglue the top and pull the neck back and re glue it... but I think this is a bit too much for that treatment. Could I perhaps remove the neck, and then fit a piece in the back of the mortise giving it a steeper angle? Too much stress on the button? Thanks!

    Walnut hull tint

    Not for colouring varnish, but I have used it as a ground colour for a Brecian viola, also used it for colouring the inside of instruments, and of course it works great for craquelure. it can also be a useful tool for taking the whiteness of a new piece of wood in restoration

    Hi Andreas, whats the idea behind this ‘new’ type of graft? Will the G peg be termed through the spruce neck graft?

    New Grinding Wheel???

    I tried these at a woodworking show recently, and they worked fantastically!!!! It will for sure be the next tool I buy. I prefer using a high speed grinder than a tormek, I also like to use a small wheel so I get a deeper hollow.

    Resizing images to specific measurements

    My issue has been, that when using Gimp and photoshop to edit my pictures to the correct size on the computer, when I then print the images there seems to be some discrepancy once I then print the image. Like 5-7mm. I guess I will just have to use the printer scale percentage and trial and error until I get the desired outcome.

    Great, I didn’t know about the ruler tool on photo shop, so you just keep resizing until you get it right?
