bow maker? violin maker?


Recommended Posts

For  cleating cracks?  drill a hole the size of the wire, then thread the wire through.  The L shape goes against the instrument and the wire is pulled tight, pulling the cleat and backing support up to the inside.  Then, with the thumbscrew, you tighten the arrangement.  A crude version of what most guitar repairers use.  I use something similar on student cello ribs, no way I'm taking  the top off on those.

well thank you Jeff

However I don't think that this idea uses all the features of the tool

I see how a guitar repairer could get away with such a system , since guitars are fairly flat  but don't think that would work on a curvy rib or top or bottom plate from a violin maker.

thank you all the same
