I’ve been looking at making scrapers based on those in the collection at the Violin Museum in Cremona (MS 691 up to MS 697). To work out their outlines, I’m using the pictures and measurements provided by the catalogue of their collection . (https://museodelviolino.org/en/nuovo-libro-antonio-stradivari-disegni-modelli-forme/). During the process a few questions came up and I’m wondering if participants of this forum would have answers? 1)While resizing the outlines to the measurements provided by the book, most of them worked pretty accurately besides the MS693 which seems slightly narrower when proportionally adjusted to length and most importantly the MS696 which is about 6mm longer when proportionally adjusted to the width measurements. As the book gives the exact same measures for the MS696 and the MS697, the latter fitting within the measurements provided. I’m wondering if it could be a mistake during the data recording/entry? Or a photo distortion that could have happened during the editing? Something else? (please ref to snapshot provided, the frame representing the size provided in the book). 2) Has anyone had a chance to look at them out of their display box? And if so, have measurements of the MS696? 3) Is there any record of their thickness available? 4) Are there bevels on one side only or on both sides for each of them? Thank you for your insight,
https://www.amazon.com/Taytools-Thickness-Measuring-Resolution-Accuracy/dp/B084YR9N9V I found this dial thickness gauge on Amazon. It's supposedly made by Taylor Toolworks but I can't find the product on their website. It's about half the price of all the others I've seen, granted it has a maximum range of 22 mm. Has anyone used it or have any more information on it? It has a flat anvil tip. Is that a dealbreaker?
Am I the only one that see's a little bit of a issue with all the DIY YouTube videos that show how to make a $200 Quick Release Front Vise using only $5,000 worth of shop tools? I know there are some good videos out there, but seriously, so many of them are silly!
