    The ring looks like soft aluminium. If you clear all the rust below it and find a tube with the right diameter, you might hammer it down. But it's only for looks, you should retain it. If you...
  6. Re: Older Barnes & Mullins Flatback - missing tuner key

    It looks like a ring/spacer was placed over the axle and then the axle was riveted. Maybe you can press the ring further down and then file off the riveting. The new button could be fixed with...

    Re: How Many Like Blonde Mandos??

    Re: Trading

    Sell, buy, trade, there is never a "correct" value, only what you can agree on. That being said, todays new prices or used(if enough data exists) can of course be and indication of value.

    Re: project mandolin on Ebay

    Never buy other peoples failed projects. It's 5 times as difficult to remedy other peoples failures than to repair an honest instrument with damage or wear.

    There is a reason for their selling.
