  1. Thanks so much Peter !
  2. Hi Perter, Could you tell me the title of the Swedish book on construction of musical instruments. Unfortunately I can't open the link. Thank you in advance Giuseppe
  3. Thank you so much Urban ! You think that the measures of this croll can be adapted to the model designed in Sacconi's book ? Joseph
  4. Hi Pietro I'm not very familiar with the MN forum, I wrote you a message At the bottom of the page, but maybe I wrote it in the wrong place. did you read it? Thanks
  5. Hi Pietro, Hi everybody, I am also interested in the scroll of the Stradivari Gore Booth cello scroll from the book of Sacconi at p. 127, I see that you posted a nice photo of the scroll back that I never found on the web, could you post the whole picture front and back ? and possibly give me some measure ? I know that maybe I am asking too much. Thanks in advance. P.S. Time ego Addie posted an image on the development of this scroll but I could not interpret it , the distance between the first circle (chin)and the second circle is missing, and the two central circles which should represent the narrowest part of the volute have the same size. if A represents the last circle, the throat width is missing. Thanks for your help
  6. Hi Davide, working on the scroll is becoming interesting. Can I use your pictures to make some examples ?
  7. The answers solved all my doubts about the volute, for the first part I understood, it's me who didn't explain well. The photo is very clear (the narrowest part is close to the millimeter part of the square and not the opposite side, this was what I meant) .... However, the picture especially the red arrow removes any doubt. thank you so much
  8. Sorry, before I ask my question I did not spend time to introduce myself This is my first time in a forum, I never been in a forum before, I have to understand how it works. this was my first time in the forum and the answer to my question came very fast, I really appreciate it. learn something through a video or forum and receive the answer Directly from the author of the video in less than a day, for me it's amazing, in this case I have to say wow! I know it is no longer fashionable, but in an Anglo-Saxon environment I would apologize for my bad English. thanks David for your incredible timming. I'm here to collect information, when I was not yet registered I read many interesting things here, I'm interested in bow instruments in general , but you can not start without a complete idea of the whole project. the videos of Davide are a big help. Yes Carl 1961 correct! now I can start to try to make a scroll ! before I had many doubts, now I feel a little relaxed. I feel like I have no more questions on this subject. So, just when the line of the tangent comes in contact with the curve of the volute That is the narrowest point (or the theoretical narrowest point, depends abaut the maker's taste … do it a little bit back or forth) resting the square on the fingerboard plane and than mark it, from the front of course ? And of course Use the square even for the narrowest point of the second turn. I take this opportunity for another question as we are talking about scroll template, It seems that the lines of the begbox are straight to the circle number two , is it a rule in general ? or should be observed case by case? however if it is not, the circle two is in a strategic position aligned to the bottom part of the volute, if the straight lines do not end at this point, you can use this point as an initial reference and then move them depending where the lines end to be straight , Correct ?
  9. Hi Davide, I watched your videos about the volute, they solved a lot of my doubts, It's a serie really well done, very detailed videos, congratulations and thanks !! thanks to the questions asked by Frank Nichols I solved the missed doubts, your drawing that showing the three main points was very useful. I would like to ask you two questions, may be useful to the others in this forum How do you identify the narrowest part of the volute from the drawing ? This point is hidden and I don't know how to find it. I have thought in various ways, the only way I can think, it's to draw a tangent line on the higher part of the volute , but here there is a problem, the tangent part is quite wide, my idea is to look for half of this tangent line, this should be the point where the narrowest part lies, but looking at your drawing I see that the narrower part of the volute is not on halfway of this tangent. How do you identify the narrowest part of the volute ? I Note that the narrowest point of the volute of the first turn is not aligned At the narrowest point of the second turn , you find this point using the compass. And that is the only mark you make, you don't mark all the second turn with a line to Creating an outline as I often see by many makers (for beginner is not so easy to work without a precise reference, it's for experienced makers) How do you put the mark on the second turn, this would help me to look The other marks so I can connect them.
