Ebay listing that I REALLY WANT!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi String players- My names Edwin and I've played violin since I was 3. It's been my dream lately to build my own bow and I found some tools on Ebay that I'm crazy about, but my dad said I should ask just what's a good start for tools. These are some planes made out of wood and brass scrapers, plus a bit of wood for starting bows. Can you let me know if these are the appropriate tools to get started? Thanks for the information. I love this site, particularly the technique blog; I've been helped many times. Thanks-Ed

Ed;

I'm afraid the information above probably isn't enough for the members here to offer you a decent answer (concerning the specific items in the ebay listing). You may want to include a link to the listing.

the ebay listing looks like a good deal, but you dont know for sure the planes are really bow making tools and the guys feedback is only three; in the old days i would never bid on someone with such low feedback, it might be a rip off, but with paypal i think you have good protection, so maybe bid on it you can get the books later

There are some bowmakers who sell bow making tools as well as large dealers who specialize in violin, bow and luthier supplies. Two bowmakers sites that you might want to check out are Lynn Hannings at her site and Michael Vann at bowhair.com
