    Re: bandsaw blade recommendations

    John, check with Mizenheimer in Morristown, TN. They custom weld blades and keep stock from Starrett and Lenox. That's where I get my blades. They are a pretty big operation and even make custom...

    Are they "free range" as well?

  3. Re: Hoping for the safety of those in Nashville & My Thoughts Are

    Terrible event in Nashville last night. I think the latest count is 25 lives lost in middle Tennessee from this storm. Most of the loses were in Putnam County (Cookeville area), considerably east...

    Re: Extended length drill bit

    I bought a set of long bits from MSCDirect.com years ago just for installing pickguard. They work great for this.

    Re: Swannanoa Gathering 2019

    I'll be there again to do repair and set-up work. Always a great week. Hope to see old friends and new faces as well. If all goes as it has the last few years, I'll be in the lounge across from...

    Re: Re-saw blade

    I second the Wood Slicer (Highland Woodworking). It's thin kerf, impulse hardened teeth, and variable pitch to help eliminate harmonic vibration. The price is right too. I have a friend resawing...

    So sorry to hear this news. I only had the pleasure of visiting with Paul a couple of times at the Mandolin Symposium. The last time was with Eric Thompson in attendance. Condolences to family and...

    Re: Painting powder coat

    I had a bicycle rack powder coated last year and because it was silver, they recommended it be coated with an automotive clear coat to keep it looking nice. So far, it's held up great! So, I assume...
  9. Re: Mandolin Brothers Book of Vintage News/ Photos?

    I would think Walter Carter would be a valuable resource for information regarding publishing. Walter has written/co-written a number of books (including the recent book on the history of the...
  10. Re: Undocumented Loar? Gibson Style H-5 Mandol

    Dan... does it look like it only has a single layer of cream colored binding (no black and white line)? Also the only other flowerpot mandola I've seen is Dawgs. His has the single layer of binding...

    Re: Bill Collings has passed away

    I only met Bill a couple of times, and the only thing bigger than his personality was his heart. He did more for small shop luthiers than most will ever know. He'll be missed. RIP Bill.

    Re: Resaw blade

    I've had wonderful results with the Wood Slicer blades from Highland Woodworking in Atlanta. They are made specifically for resawing. They come in 1/2" and 3/4". They have a variable pitch to the...

    Re: Evo wear

    While a few folks seem to be ready to give up on EVO, I think these are extremely rare occurrences. I've installed over three pounds of EVO and haven't had a single issue with it. This occurrence...

    Re: Evo wear

    I've done dozens of EVO fret jobs and haven't seen this myself, but Tom Ellis described the exact situation in the photos, but only on one mandolin. It has to be a chemistry thing.

  18. Re: Dudenbostel and Kemnitzer - great minds thinking alike.

    Ken... yes, we went up to Louisville together that year, didn't we? You were at my house when I strung it up the previous night as I remember. We had a mini "Loarfest" in the basement on Thursday...
  19. Re: Dudenbostel and Kemnitzer - great minds thinking alike.

    Yes, the first 4 were red spruce. Regarding Carpathian spruce, it's kind of interesting. It's picea abies, which is the predominant spruce in western and eastern Europe. It's sold as German...
  20. Re: Dudenbostel and Kemnitzer - great minds thinking alike.

    Thanks for all the kind words folks. I will say that number 5 was an experiment in using Engelmann spruce. In my vast prior experience (4 mandolins.... ha!) were built with red spruce, like the...
  21. Re: Dudenbostel and Kemnitzer - great minds thinking alike.

    #73747 is exceptional, however it wasn't that this particular one "moved" me in such a way to seek it out to use as a pattern. It was simply the one that was available. I've since measured a number...

    Mandolin Beer

    Well, you gotta like the bottle! I'm not a beer guy, so can't comment on the taste. But I suspect it has a "woody" flavor, with lots of "sustain" on the palette! It's from a brewery near Roanoke,...
