I'm needing some help from the Maestronet gurus. I am making chinrests and need help with finishing them. They are walnut, as it is easily available and inexpensive, looks somewhat like rosewood, and is dense enough to not really dampen the sound, and am finishing them with beeswax and turpentine. For some people, though, the beeswax wears off quickly. I just found a superglue solution on another thread on here. Any suggestions at all would be most helpful and deeply appreciated. Thank you so much.
I am interested in seeing more examples of decorative case blankets, which seem to have been popular decades ago, less so today. Besides the two here, which I own, I have seen a couple of very beautiful embroidered items, probably c. 1900. Who else has come across these, and do you have a photo? Many thanks! Marianne
Jeremy Davis posted a topic in Luthier ExchangeHello all, I've got a Automach WCS-100 Professional Reciprocating Woodcarver for sale. I'll include a detailed description and pictures below. This is really an amazing machine. I've used it to easily gouge through maple, walnut, and ebony with ease. If you are not familar with a reciprocating carver, it uses a pneumatic-type action to buffet the chisel-end hundreds of times a second via a rotary shaft. This allows you to carve through the hardest woods easily and with great control. Also, this machine is rather quiet for what it does. This particlar machine has not been used much and is very like-new. It comes with many accessories.. I've had this for a while, but never used it much. Just never got around to doing all the carving I had planned to. Anyway, these are very hard to find used, and certainly rare to find in the condition this one is in. I'm posting it here first for my MN friends before I put it up on Ebay. With this sale you will get: ~Automach WCS-100 Professional Reciprocating Woodcarver ($499 retail) ~Rotary Head Power carving tool w/key ($95 Retail) ~Eleven (11) Chisel Heads *See photo for details* ($15 ea/$165 total retail) ~Wrench & Power Cable All in all, this cost me $759, but I'm willing to let it go for $450. Shipping will be $25 CONUS, Int'l shipping is available, please inquire. If paying by Paypal, please add 3% for fees. Otherwise, a Money Order or Cashier's Check is fine. Thanks for looking!
