Falstaff, This is a great idea.

Sorry I can't contribute much for the moment.

(By the way - have you found a name for the center line that divides the back of the scroll?)

Below is a token - feel free to blow highlight it here if you wish.

Bow parts

I believe you are thinking of the "stop length."

I think this is the length of the string from the nut to the bridge.

I will leave it to those who do setups to give a more accurate explanation.

Don't know that I've heard this referred to with a name. Fin. Ridge.

How about "philtrum"? -- the ridge that runs from the lip to the nose in anatomy.

My goodness, Falstaff, you are a veritible wizard with these illustrations.

I was going to clean mune up and sed it again in any case but couldn't

have done as well as you have.

I will see what else I can find for you.

This could be a valuable resource - when are you going into print with it?

Wink! Wink!

Omo..

Print with it? I'm not following your implication.

Stem. I like that. It would be good to have a term for this feature in an f-hole, as it is often very telling. Whether it is overly wide. Whether it is upright or slanted.

Can anyone suggest other terms they have heard applied to this part of an f-hole between the wings?

Another question for the makers/dealers in the forum: is there a different term for the tip that points INTO an eye of the f-hole versus the one that points north/south?

Excellent thread and nomenclature of photos/diagrams falstaff.

Any chance of doing one for a Peg?

I hope this "Quick Reply" works, as ever since the changes to the site I have been unable to get the "Reply" and "Quote" buttons to work, so only come to this site very occasionally now.

The Quick Reply worked fine. What is it you are looking for in a peg diagram? The different types? (English, French) or the different parts? (Collar is the only thing I can think of)....

Eric? Are you out there?

It's just that some pegs I have purchased in the past have differed around the collar area in respect of the size/depth of the groove etc, so I thought there may have been names for each section, similar to bridges.
