  1. Gorilla “brush & nozzle” super glue Brad. TBH I’ve not used the nozzle but the brush has been all I’ve needed & means you don’t have the problems with the nozzle obviously. Can’t really think why I’d need to use the nozzle anyway as the brush leaves a cleaner job & feels more accurate. all best
  2. Good in terms of it is still possible to do a good rehair with
  3. Also, I had bought hair previously from a different supplier, which also was good hair, but it was more difficult to comb & I had to reject more bad hairs so there is a clear difference between the two deliveries!
  4. Does anyone have any advice on how I go about covering myself as regards breakages on bow rehairs? for example there could be a pre existing weakness in the head which could snap when tightening up the button and potentially I could be liable for this.
  5. lankuishuang (song Chung musical instrument co ltd) on eBay is what I use now for hair.i bought 500g for a good price & the comb goes through it nicely. Ive rehaired around 25 bows & am also new to rehairing bows, I’ve rehaired 5 of my own cello bows as well violin & viola bows & it works for me. length of 15mm x 6mm red pine from my local DIY store does all my wedges £2.50 in Scottish money good luck !
  6. Many thanks ! I started rehairing bows a few months ago, done about 20 or so and before I know it I’m doing it’s grown to doing other things, I served my time as a carpenter so using my hands isn’t too big a problem. Really enjoying messing around on the workbench & doing up a few bows even if they’re only for my own use it’s still a great hobby your “whalebone lapping photos helped also !
  7. Also any advice on how to fit the mother of pearl on top of the slider would be appreciated (where to buy & how to cut)
  8. Thanks Jerry, no rings on this one just the eye.
  9. This one doesn’t have the metal ring Brad so it’s only the eye. Ill post a photo when it comes through the post
  10. Hi all, can anyone offer advice on how I would replace Parisian eyes on an old cello bow frog? thanks kh
