  1. That's what I did, back when this thread was started and other threads or post from here. never got anywhere yet other than small tests. I was also thinking your way is more safe too. I tried with a home made tank and scrapped that idea fast, leaked, too much. and as for steam, I never got far, tried a pressure cooker but most steam was like 10-15 lbs. never could get the temp up higher than like 250 F, a friend sent me his tank for free I just had to pay shipping. but never got anywhere so far. it will most likely be when I retire LOL
  2. @Don Noon , you might like this, if your know the raspberry Pi, it's used by beer brewsers, but can be setup for any batching. fully customizable and free https://web.craftbeerpi.com/ this guide is what i used to install. https://vision.beer/2021/02/15/how-to-get-started-with-craftbeerpi-v4-0/
  3. I don't think a vacuum sealer will pull down enough to get all the oxygen out. it takes a good pump to do that, like the use for refrigeration. but not bad according to the reviews on this video How much Vacuum does a food saver pull
  4. Don has posted a picture before, I could not find it here, must be some other thread.
  5. As Always Thanks for your valuable information, I had to look up damping and you also explained that well to. https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/332772-question-about-softwoods-absorbingdamping-sound/&do=findComment&comment=682243 Now we just need you to do and sell a book!
  6. How to make thermally aged tonewood on a budget, page 26 in the pdf https://ruokangas.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Thermally-Aged-Tonewood-2020.pdf
  7. I own the book and read it, at first it was interesting, but as you read towards the end he get's weird and way out in left field, to me.
  8. FoxMitchell Looks like the rabbit heard you
  9. Exactly My thinking too. but enjoy your stuff, keep us posted
  10. Awesome! But you skipped some steps LOL I'll be watching for sure.
  11. This updated video may be interesting to some.
  12. Try and selling those violins to an Orchestra playing field see what others see it would be interesting. I have 20 old violins from different makers and even threw 4 together, and none have the sound that speaks out and grabs you. so to me a Great violin is very hard to find. maybe my ears or color blind and I'm looking for the impossible?
  13. interesting post! Although these books have been condemned here, I still find them interesting. Violin tone and violin makers by Moya, Hidalgo https://archive.org/details/violintoneviolin00moyauoft/page/110 Violin tone-peculiarities by Castle, Frederick https://archive.org/details/violintonepeculi00castiala/page/44 https://archive.org/details/violintonepeculi00castiala/page/134
  14. Awesome Violin, in 289 years it will most certainly be worth Lot $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
  15. yes, his measurements or following the arch so it will be larger measurements , so may not be the ones to use except to check with after your carved the plates.
  16. Roger Hargrave has a great write up too. https://www.roger-hargrave.de/ https://www.roger-hargrave.de/PDF/Artikel/Strad/Artikel_1988_05_Del_Gesu_Guarneri_Kreisler_PDF.pdf
  17. You only got one Life to live, get them both
  18. Great work as usually they look great wonderful. Have you seen this guy's work, he is doing a CNC violin. He said in this part 15 video that he will have his stl files available.
  19. Michael, to me that's the best sure way of doing it. Thanks for the tip.
  20. Nice. Touch plate, I use the 5$ ones on eBayand they work great . I have a script that you put in mach3 to set offset and to do the zero, if anyone needs it I'll upload it.
  21. I have a touch probe made by DrewTronics, but mine was one without the led (one of his first models 130.00) and I use the Prob-it software for Mach3 (35.00) so far I only used it to find center and out side, but actually bought it to probe a violin plate, but never made it that far yet picture is mine with a case I cnc carved from Plexi-glass. https://drewtronics.org/ http://www.craftycnc.com/probe-it-wizard-mach3/
  22. here is the instructables of his work https://www.instructables.com/id/Fusion-360-Proportional-Design-for-the-Violin/
  23. here is a interesting Fusion 360 video doing the Guarneri 'del gesu' Violin 1741
  24. nathan slobodkin, your days coming, you either give up violin stuff or improvise like Don is having too. I rather see Don keeping on the go
