I'd be interested in seeing pics of the interior of Stainer instruments, or even CT scans. John Dilworth mentioned three (I think) internal spike marks reminiscent of the Amati central hole. Does anyone know anything about this, their placement etc? I know you do!
Hello, This is a multi-question post: 1. Few days ago I received my Titian poster and was positively surprised by the CT scan provided on the back of the poster. I am wondering how accurate these CT scans are with regards to mould measurements. Can I just trace the inside of the rib structure pictured there and assume that this gives me the actual size of the mould? If so, these scans fantastically reduce the work that is involved in sizing the mould from the outlines provided in the other posters. 2. I have a question for those who have set up a workshop space at home or in their office space. If you don't have a dedicated room for violin making how do you tackle the dust issue? I have an office space at home with books, computers and instruments and am wondering whether I might be able to set up a little workshop space in there. I realise that some of the dustier work has to be carried out in the garden or elsewhere, but what about the rest? Can an office and a workshop coexist peacefully within the same undivided space? 3. Not a question, just an observation: a while ago I started thinking about a model for a viola and received some really useful help from Manfio. It made me realise that his space here on maestro.net has been left empty. I don't want to start a debate about his absence or the admin's decision, which led to his leaving the forum. I just wanted to share my observation and acknowledge the impact these professional luthiers have here.
