  1. I use a diamond stone to flatten the water stones and are useful for shaping before water stones. The diamond stone cost less than a flattening stone.
  2. Any thoughts on using Nicosia Green? I have been trying to stick with historic pigments... https://www.naturalpigments.com/nicosia-green-earth-50ml.html
  3. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/world-of-many-fiddles-1561871.html Roger Hargrave posts here on occasion.
  4. My son's viola teacher had a LC viola and his run of the mill Eastman sounded noticeably better.
  5. I have two 60w led panels on side and a few 10w on bottom although they probably aren't necessary. From what I can gather they work about the same as fluorescent lights. I went with LED for cost and not having to fool with bulbs etc....
  6. The whole point of the cook is to drive off water, organic acids and other components as the resin decomposes from heat.
  7. Early in my violin interest I bought one similar it sounded terrible
  8. I had a schuster & co violin fixed up for my son the fingerboard ebony was jet black, even the luthier that worked on it commented on it.
  9. Below is a thread discussing grow tents for drying. There is a sturdy metal tube frame you can attach board to mount lights and motor for rotation. It vents on the top, the box covers it so heavier dust can't fall in. The other ports have drawstring and are easy to close. I am not particularly clean this setup excludes almost all the dust. I think positive pressure is easier to use, you don't need a perfect seal for it to work.
  10. I don't know what you are getting at but the same stat for NYC is 70%. It's dry here.
  11. It's always dry here I don't bother with humidifier.
  12. You can see the filter poking out the bottom right
  13. Photographers have been chasing shadow detail since it's invention. It's still an issue with digital cameras.
  14. I duct taped a round automotive air filter to end of this to provide positive pressure... seems to do the trick. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J5VN82X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
