    Re: Harmony Monterey H410 Rescue

    West System is the best epoxy I have found. The 5 to 1 or 3 to 1 ratio is not handy for small batches. I use a digital postal scale. A laboratory scale is better. Smiths is very good and is 1 to 1....

    I use epoxy and wood flower for filler rather than superglue. Epoxy is 100% solids. You are moving right along. Will you do anything to the braces? I use sewing thread tied to two safety pins to...

    Mr. Dulak's Peg head drilling jig shows in this video. Other techniques have changed a lot since the Mid Missouri days.

    Two useful products. I have not used them on an instrument. They do soften stretchy glue.

    Re: Case for big pot banjo mandolin

    Musicians Friend puts these on sale fairly often. They were offered for $49.99 recently. I bought two. They are decent. It is too long but would accommodate the big body.

    I sing along with this one if no one is around. I have my own version for the lyric in the the last stanza.

  9. Re: Installing a K&K in OM - Question about location of endpin ja

    I think an 1/8 inch jack makes very good sense for a penetration through a thin side without a block inside. A delectate cord with an 1/8 inch is far less likely to damage the instrument if (heaven...

    I do not have any experience with tuners where the string tension pull the gears away from each other rather than together. Are these reverse tuners? ( I am sure the answer is in a post, I will look...

    There is a lot on the web about Harmony guitars. Not as much about mandolins. I am not finding the old database. I see this but have not studied it.

    I will not forget when my dad (The Preacher) told me that Eric Clapton admired Don Williams. And NO we can not listen to my one tape (The Allman Brothers) on the long ride home.

  18. Re: Installing a K&K in OM - Question about location of endpin ja

    I like the end pin jack / strap button through the tail piece. Unfortunatly most tailpieces are made for mandolin which puts it in the wrong place. I have made a few home made tail pieces that center...

    I like the way John Hamlett cuts to the data. I have suspected that Simple Green contains oil of wintergreen.

    It looks like a hand done marriage of a mandolin neck on a banjo pot. The spacers on the lugs might mean a tone ring or something was removed from the rim. It may not be the elusive banlo killer but...

    I have had good results with Simple Green un dilulted, a small amount on rag. Lately I have added it to my list of things to try before moving on to solvents.
