    Re: The Harmonic Tone Revealers

    Interesting, I can't imagine anyone more melodic than John Reischman.
  4. Re: Shop disc sander for small delicate work

    That would have worked nicely with the 12”, 12’ (spindle to spindle) edge sander. Ran on 440 and scared me every time I turned it on. Full speed NOW.

    But it could do a long, straight edge.

    Re: Airloom Tura carbon fiber mandolin case

    Interesting review Josh. I would have thought scratches on the carbon fiber would have been the first ding. But a puncture? Is it just partial through the fiber? And obviously you don't have a...

    Re: Crushed stone for headstock inlay?

    Typically a jewelers saw is used to cut MOP or abalone. The blades come in packs of 10. What does that tell you?

    Don’t know anything about the other stuff.
  9. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    Actually, there are some correct answers, even in this forum.
  10. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    I’m surprised that wood has knowledge and learns over time. And that it’s learning is always successful in the desired direction.

    Just where is the wood’s brain anyway? And when you cut it down,...

    Re: What's the best way to dust my fretboard?

    I suppose over the last 50+ years I’ve cleaned fingerboards but I’ve really never ‘dusted’ one. Clean hands, in the case, played daily. And I’d never heard of anyone doing that before this thread.

    When everyone’s hearing is the same, we might be able to come to some agreement.

    Re: D’Addario flat tops

    Don Rigsby. I tried them, they’re ok, not the feel of real flatwounds, nor the price.

    Re: Ever wonder?

    It's not often I feel sad that banjos are disrespected, but it happened.
  17. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    Ninety years have passed since Virzis were patented. Pretty slow uptake.

    And I’m just saying some very respected folks can be very idiosyncratic.
  18. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    Just like following Lloyd Loar and putting in Verdi’s all over the place.

    Re: Jerry Capehart

    It would take an descriptive, itemized list to tell. May not be worth whatever you paid, or maybe more. To someone.

    Re: A5 top thickness

    Removing the overburden is burdensome. I would think leaving no more that 1/16 would be sufficient

    I wouldn’t know about reshaping under tension as a common practice, although maybe that’s a...
  24. Re: The weight balance between the head and body

    As noted in post #8, a strap behind the nut makes the balance so much better, especially if its not slippery on your clothing.
  25. Re: Does a small split by sound hole matter?

    Yes, it could be repaired but that won't be free. I'd pass and wait for one without any damage. Good luck.
