  1. Thanks Nik Kyklo - I will put it in my practice box for a later date with a Dremel
  2. Thanks Blank face. There was a small crack near the end of the stick where it must have blown out a bit before it went in to be looked at. I will be collecting it tomorrow and find out more about where it went. I think next time I will try myself with wd40 or coca-cola! Pity as it was an old stick.. but hey-ho.
  3. Thank you Blank face that is great - I am definitely keeping a note of that info. Is heating up the screw another option too?
  4. Thanks very much Blank face. Unfortunately the screw broke while being unseized so looks like it will possibly have another frog/adjuster now!
  5. Yes I think it is. It seems to have a softer matt finish to the stick varnish as opposed to the tougher shiny shellac.
  6. Thanks fiddlecollector. I think it is my photo but I thought the same until I had a really good look. Appreciate your help. Is the wrapping around the stick which looks indented as if lapping/thread may have been there a base layer or is it the case that some bows were made with that as a covering instead of the usual lapping?
  7. Thank you Violinjon. Some parts look less German than others and the chamfers seem reasonable.
  8. Hi. Appreciate this is probably a lower end bow but I am interested to hear some thoughts on it. The adjuster is frozen so I am not sure of numerals etc underneath just yet. Just wondering as to whether it is French or German. The stick isn't a chippy shellac but the adjuster and frog look German. Would the covering on the stick have been covered with silver lapping or is it a cheaper form of lapping for low end bows?
  9. Thanks Blank face - apologies I incorrectly thought the branding related to a family factory. The bow is silver mounted.
  10. Are all BAUSCH stamped bows factory produced student bows or did any makers work with Bausch before establishing themselves. I'm not saying this silver mounted bow is anything special but it is not as cheaply made (for want of a better word) as others I have seen. Just got me wondering as a general question whether any well regarded makers came through the ranks of the Bausch factory.
  11. Just wondering about this German bow and whether the adjuster collar points gives any clues stylistically to a maker or does it just immediately point to cheap trade bow? Appreciate any info - thanks.
  12. Great thank you - I will try to remember that in future. Much appreciated.
  13. I'm guessing as is usually my luck it is a factory copy - just felt the adjuster showed a bit more consideration than usual designwise. The adjuster is unpinned or else split where the pins were and only one pin on the one piece heel plate. Photos in better light added - plus a bit cleaner! I'd be interested to learn more about telling differences in chamfers re decent bows and factory finishes re blade and file marks etc..
  14. Hi Jacob thank you. That's the end of this post then . Thanks again!
  15. Maybe not. Some things make me think it's going one way but then other aspects pull me another way...a bit of a head scratcher for me at the moment!
