Mat Roop Posted December 31, 2020 Report Share Posted December 31, 2020 A comment on a previous thread & something I've often thought about... before glueing a crack in a top or wherever, of course we should clean the crack first... but what if it is not fully accessible or when the top will not be removed? Some of old granpa's fiddles are incredibly dirty and if there is a crack that is not fully accessible, like a saddle crack, it would make sense to glue first before cleaning, otherwise dirt will get washed into the crack and be detrimental. Even on newer violins that appear to be clean, they may have been polished and cleaning will dissolve some of the polish & wash it into the crack. Thoughts??
