L13 TUNING SLIDE REMOVAL TOOL N60 SAX POST RAISING TOOLS

WOODWIND TOOLS

Wrap rawhide around the stuck slide. Hook the L13 Slide Remover around the rawhide and briskly pull with the sliding weight. Designed to help prevent pinched fingers. Also to be used with the N60 Sax Post Raising Tool as shown above.

L13 Tuning Slide Removing Tool L13A Replacement Hook (screws in) L13B Replacement Rawhide Strip

When a sax post is depressed into the sax body causing misalignment and key binding, it can be raised quickly to its proper position with the N60 Sax Post Raising Tool. The tool is double-ended to fit all common sized posts. It is not necessary to remove the spring, unless the post has two springs pointing in opposite directions. In this case, remove the top most spring only. NEW N60B for baritone saxes.

PROCEDURE
Slip the tool over the post knob. Insert the hook of your L13 Tuning Slide Removing Tool through the hole at the opposite end (see picture below). Align the Post Raising Tool and the Slide Remover so that they will put the post in the proper direction. Now, pull the weight on the L13 Slide Removing Tool. Two or three light pulls will usually do the job. The N60 and N60B Sax Post Raising Tools can also be used for pulling dents out of sousaphones and other large bodied instruments. Solder a sax post into the center of the dent and pull up a little more force.

G30 TROMBONE SLIDE SPACING TOOL


We have the simple method to get correct alignment of trombone slides during reassembly. Faster and far more accurate than makeshift methods, the G30 Slide Spacing Tool works well for aligning both inside and outside slides. It is accurately machined from steel and brass and has a fine screw adjustment. After straightening the slide rails or tubes, then, using either the end bow or the handslide brace to establish the spacing, use the G30 spacing tools to maintain this size at both ends. After re-checking the parallel, solder the slide together using low heat. High heat will change your alignment. We suggest using the E45A solder clips to secure the brace/tube alignment when soldering. Also, you will find using the P90 stone will enhance your accuracy.

*NEW* N93 SAX BODY MANDREL
1-1/8 (28.57mm) Diameter 8 long (203.2mm) 2-1/2 (63.5mm) Overall diameter 54 Overall length (1371.6mm) (137.16cm) 46 (1168.4mm) (116.84cm) Work length .875 (22.22mm) Diameter

This solid steel tapered body mandrel is a copy of the original sax body rod Cliff and Gary have used for over 50 years. It works equally well on alto, tenor and baritone sax bodies. The body must be apart to use it as you are likely working on a badly bent or damaged instrument. Use to straighten, dent or burnish the body tube.

N61 SAX BODY STRAIGHTENING TOOL


This Sax Body Set is especially for straightening saxes which are slightly bent or sprung, usually causing upper stack keys to bind and /or not work properly. Always straighten before disassembly! Bending the keys and cups without straightening the body or shortening the hinge tubing will not work satisfactorily . The stack rod will still not align with the posts or key spacing. After you determine which way the body is bent or sprung, insert the proper size N61 plug into the neck socket on an alto/tenor OR tighten the clamp on the sax body holder placed on the baritone body to the coil ring. Some repairmen accomplish the straightening by allowing a controlled fall of the instrument so that the holding device hits the top of the bench and reverses the bend. One or two light blows are usually sufficient to straighten the body and realign the keys. QUICK AND EASY! Full instructions are included.

N72 BODY BOW DENT REMOVER


A double ended, curved and tapered rod, 18 (457mm) long and 1/2 (12.7mm) in diameter. Intended to remove dents in the sax body bow by inserting balls through the Eb or C tone holes and then gently prying up dents, low spots or brace flanges with the lever action hand or in a vise. Use the N80CS set of balls and N16S guides.

N73 SAX GOOSENECK DENT ROD


This 1/2 (12.7mm) tapered and curved rod was designed to help remove dents from all sax goosenecks using the fast, rod and ball technique. The slightly curved end fits the body end of the necks and the large curved end fits over inside the gooseneck of the Tenor Sax and some C Melodies. Use the flexible P58 for that area between where the rod and ball will not reach from either end. In addition to sax repairs the N73 Rod can also be used on some French horn crooks, some sousaphone crooks, etc.. Used with the N80BS Set of balls

N4 YAMAHA TUNING SLIDE DENT REMOVAL KIT N85 SAX BODY DENT REMOVER

If you service Yamaha cornets or trumpets this TUNING SLIDE DENT REMOVAL KIT is a must have addition to the shop. Because of the manufacturing process (silver soldered draw knob), dents in the first or second valve tuning slide are nearly impossible to fix any normal method. Ferrees modified the dent removing jig used at the Yamaha factory to solve this problem. In 90% of the dented slides we tried, the N4 fixed them quickly without the need for further dent work. The N4 DENT REMOVING KIT will eliminate the need for keeping a large inventory of new slides as replacement parts. It will also eliminate having to completely overhaul each damaged tuning slide. The kit comes complete with a holding jig, special ground pliers and instructions. N4 Yamaha Tuning Slide Dent Removal Kit

For removing dents from saxophone bodies by internal hammering, which can be controlled from the outside of the instrument. Will work on bow or any part of the body. The price includes two different length arms and three interchangeable heads.

*NEW* F77 POWERDRIVER SCREWDRIVERS
Our new F77 PowerDriver Screwdrivers are for repairmen who love solid, fixed-blade screwdrivers that fit correctly. These repairmen take pride in their tools and workmanship. This NEW design gives the blade a better fit with sizes that fit nearly every woodwind or brasswind screw, giving excellent control which helps to eliminate slippage, scratching or injury. We started with the tip of the blade, the part that has to fit the pivot screw and rod end slots perfectly. The tip is the most imp ortant part of the repairmans screwdriver. The blade tip area is precision ground to a semi-hollow ground shape to give them maximum strength. The improved design parallel section is then ground to fit the slot of the screw or rod. This is what keeps you from buggering up the slot and post hole; a blade tip that evenly distributes the turning torque applied at the handle to the full width and depth of the pivot screw or rod end slot. Each of these screwdrivers comes with a black anodized finish on a finely knurled aluminum alloy handle for a firmer feel, which provides you with more torque for easier turning of stubborn screws and rods. All of the tops are hex shaped, so that they will NOT roll off your bench. They are color coded for quick reference. It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the blade parallel to the body to prevent damage caused by the leverage created by angular insertion in the post pivot screw or slot. As well as these F77s are made, nothing is unbreakable. These drivers ARE stronger than most others and tough too, but that doesnt mean you can just twist away with abandon. When the screw is hard frozen and the screwdriver shaft flexes, STOP and apply a little heat and our great old standby, J88 Corrosion Cracker. Wait a bit and Voila!, the screw will usually come out much easier Six of the most commonly used rod and screw sizes were chosen for this collection of fine drivers. Two of them come in two lengths. They are available individually or in a complete set of 8.

*NEW* E100 FLUTE KEY ARM BENDING SET
Complete with 10-pad cup dies, 2-formed drivers, 1-brass jaw with one Teflon face and 1-2 X 2 patch of Teflon to make small cushion pads for the drivers. Now you can bend or re-bend keys to give the proper attack angle to a tone hole WITHOUT distorting the pad cup in the process. By using this key arm bending set, you can dial in the proper angle for the pad to be perfectly level with the tone hole without using a big stack of washers or making the pad too high out of the cup than the rest on the pads on the instrument. This tool set works with either Plateau or French model instruments. It doesnt take much power to do. Use just a slight tap with a rawhide mallet to tunk the arm, using the supplied driver. With this complete set of dies, 15.5mm thru 20mm, you can, at last, correct factory or previous repair miscues by setting the pad projection to your standard and have the pad hit the tone hole in level fashion. Especially handy for installing some of those special pad and base washer combos that some people are experimenting with now. The two special drivers, (one-blunt chisel for forged keys and the other a split fork for the French style sculpted keys) fit the pad cup key arm profiles. The special made brass jaw is coated on one side with a Teflon pad so that the pad cup doesnt get scratched. The Teflon patch is provided so that you may cut small cushions for the drivers to give some help in protecting sterling keys or brand new plated ones.

F27 SAX KEY BENDING LEVERS

Seven tools designed specifically for key bending work. Eliminates makeshift methods. You can level any sax key easily in a matter of minutes. Will pull down the back of the pad cup if the pad does not touch the tone hole in back. Will not mar the keys. No longer necessary to shim up pads. Will cut hours off overhaul times and adjustments when replacing pads. Slip the proper G21 Key Leveling Tool between the tone hole and the front of the pad. Next, select the correct F27 Bending Lever. Hook the prongs on the lever under the hinge tube. Then, pull down with the necessary pressure.

F27 Sax Key Bending Levers

G21 SAX KEY LEVELING TOOLS


This set of 7 brass wedges are placed under sax pads to align cups with tone holes before pad seating. Each wedge is a different thickness and different angle for hard to get places. Can be used with F27 Bending Levers or for bending keys with your fingers. It is suggested that two sets be purchased, as you will custom bend some of these for special locations.

*NEW* E97 SAXOPHONE TONE HOLE REFACING TOOL
These NEW E97 Diamond and brass refacing tools are now available in two different grits; the standard 400 and fine 800, for both cutting and deburring depending on your need. For doing really fine tone hole work without the guessing and approximate precision of not having a tool made for the specific purpose of leveling and smoothing the tone hole surface. These tools are designed with the intent to allow you to both smooth and level a tone hole quickly and easily after a body straightening and any dent work area done. Many times only a quarter turn of the tool is required to check the status of the tone hole and keep material removal to a minimum. These tools save on fingers, hands and fingertips. These new refacing tools use the same proven rotary method used with the old E96 set. This new E97 set contains the same pilot discs, handles and wrenches, but is crafted from billet machined brass to hold a diamond disc as a precision cutting surface. These tools are made from brass to allow cleaning of the abrasive diamond disc with a toothbrush and plain water. If desired, you may order a set of brass refacing tools with either the 400 or 800 grit.

*NEW* E98 FLUTE TONE HOLE REFACING TOOL


This flute specific tool is a refined version of the hexagonal one we have had for saxophones since the late 1980s. The new, longer, round and knurled aluminum handle gives you more control over the movement of the diamond cutting face, since you do not have to overcome the inertia caused by the heavier hexagonal brass handle model. The delicate nature of a flute requires your hand to have ultimate control unlike the bigger, heavier and thicker tone hole saxophones. This tool now comes complete with 4 pilots for the basic sized tone holes on most flutes. The pilots are: 4/16 (6.35mm) 7/16 (11.11mm) 8/16 (12.7mm) 9/16 (14.28mm) in diameter Specific pilot sizes to your specs are available by special order. Or, you may modify the ones that come with it. The replacement 800 grit diamond disc is a standard part we carry; its number is E97D8-1.

G53 & G54 CLARINET TONE HOLE UNDERCUTTERS
7. Now you can unscrew the T handle from the cutter and pull out the insertion rod out of the clarinet. The cutter will come out with the rod. 8. While holding the clarinet joint, pull up on the T handle and twist it clockwise. This will pull the undercutter against the inside of the tone hole. The clockwise turning will remove the material making a perfect tapered opening. It normally only requires a few turns of the handle (5 or 6). Not a lot of upward pressure is necessary. A G53 Soprano Clarinet Undercutter set consists of the insertion rod, three T handles, and six precision cutters. A G54 Bass Clarinet Undercutter set consists of the insertion rod, two T handles and seven precision cutters.

WOODWIND TOOLS

This tool was developed at the request of several Repairmen. These Repairmen had been getting requests to undercut the tone holes on bass and soprano clarinets. Accomplished players feel that this undercutting improves the tone, response and clarity of many of the notes on the clarinet. This tool accomplishes the undercutting that is already standard on many French manufactured clarinets. Now you can perform the procedure on any clarinet. Ferrees G53 Soprano Clarinet Tone Hole Under cutters and G54 Bass Clarinet Tone Hole Under cutters make this undercutting a simple task. 1. Choose one of the G53 or G54 Under cutters that matches the tone hole you will be cutting. 2. Slide the keyed slot in the bottom of the cutter over the keyed part of the insertion rod. 3. Slide insertion rod (with the cutter resting on it) into the end of the clarinet joint. By looking thru the tone hole, stop the cutter directly under the hole you will be working on. 4. Insert the threaded T handle down thru the tone hole and screw it into the under cutter. 5. Pull out the insertion rod from the clarinet joint. 6. After the hole has been undercut, return the insertion rod into the clarinet joint and insert the keyed end back into the key way in the under cutter. (Cont. top of next column)

*NEW* H58 HEAVY DUTY TENON SWEDGER *NEW* H59 TENON EXPANDER CAN OPENER STYLE
For Flutes, Saxophones & Bass Clarinets
The H59 was recently redesigned to offer more flexibility in tightening metal tenons. Used on flutes, saxes, bass clarinets, etc. The metal in the necks of some bass clarinets and saxophones are a lot thicker than other instrument tenons. This is why conventional methods of enlarging the tenon sometimes will not be as successful as when using this tool. Also the curve of a bass clarinet neck sometimes presents a problem on old style tenon expanders.

The H58 mounts in your vise. It comes equipped with 6 collets for most alto and tenor saxes. Two of the collets provided fit most alto saxes and the four larger collets fit most tenor sax tenons. There are other collets for orphan saxes and we will make any special sizes you need as well. Also pictured are two special dies made for shrinking flute tenons. ~There are two methods used to shrink the tenons~ One is to use the tool much the same as you would a flute tenon shrinker. That is, tightening the tool a little and turning the neck, being careful not to kink it. The second method and most preferred is to just put the neck tenon into the tool and tighten the tool 1/4 turn, loosen the tool, move the neck 1/4 turn and then tighten the tool 1/4 turn again, repeating until you get all the way around. Test fit and then if necessary, only go 1/8 turn the next time around at each step. Best results are obtained if you limit shrinking to about .010 per collet. Other sizes are available for baritone saxes, bass clarinets and some odd alto, tenor and c-melody saxes.

The first accessory developed is the H59A set of rollers to stretch or extrude solid hinge tubes in lieu of swedging; this helps save the finish and helps make the key longer and stronger. Especially handy for use on the hi-E and low C# keys on many saxes, the whisper key on most bassoons and the f-lever on various clarinets. There are three radii sizes for clarinet, saxes and bassoon. Not much squeezing is required, so, proceed cautiously until you get used to the effect of the mechanism. These rollers do a beautiful finished job, in most cases preserving the plating or lacquer by advancing pressure, slowly. Keep key on straight course. You may want to leave the key a little bit oval or slightly squared (NOT ENOUGH TO NOTICE) to increase the strength through the small amount of work hardening that naturally happens and to help prevent twisting or torquing of the shaft while the instrument is being played. Do NOT just clamp down and start cranking, be discreet.

H60 thru H63 EXPANDERS N77 FLUTE AND PICCOLO HEAD SWEDGING DIES

WOODWIND TOOLS

These precision made, polished and chrome plated, expanders have the proper internal expansion angle to give you a feel when you are fitting the job and also help prevent scratching the internal surfaces. These tough long lasting steel tools can be held in your hand or in a bench vise. These expanders all work on the same principle. They make an even, tight fit from loose and worn sax neck tenons and metal flute head and foot tenons, by rounding out bent, dented or out-of-round tenons. These tools apply even pressure, from the inside out.

OPERATION
Mount the tool in a vise using a V-block to properly secure it. Use cork grease or Z6 laced petroleum jelly as a lubricant on the working surface of the expander. Then turn the knurled adjusting knob until the expander is snug inside the tenon back and forth over the expanders working surface with a slow semi-rotating motion.

Ferrees Flute and Piccolo Head Swedging Dies were designed to shrink the tenons that have been over expanded. These dies can also be used to remove ridges and dents from tenons that have been previously improperly repaired. The proper sized die should be firmly held by a vise. Use cork grease or Z6 laced petroleum jelly as lube on the tenon. Tighten the adjusting screw so the die barely closes on the tenon. Work the tenon. Then move it back and forth in the die with a semi -rotating motion. Test fit, often.

FLUTE HEAD SWEDGING DIES


N77A Has a .790 (20mm) hole and is 1 (25.4mm) long. It fits most standard flutes. N77B Has a .790 (20mm) hole and is 2 (50.8mm) long. Designed for repair men who need to cover a large area. N77C This model has a similar hole .774 (19.7mm) and is 1 (25.4mm) long. It fits Armstrong model 80 and some imported flutes. N77D For the Armstrong alto flute. N77E For Gemeinhardt alto flute.

G44 SCREW SLOT SAWING TOOL


The Screw Slot Sawing Tool accurately saws screwdriver slots in stack and hinge screws. Takes all necessary rod sizes. The steel shaft is 3/8 (9.5mm) to fit the chuck of the N99A Bench Motor. To use, dip the rod in the proper hole in housing. Press the rod into the saw blade while holding the housing in your hand. In a matter of seconds, the job is completed. The tool comes with one blade which is easily replaced when necessary with a small Allen Wrench. The new oversized 1 blade makes this tool even easier to use than before. Bonus is that the replacement blades are about half the cost of the 3/4 ones in the past. Additionally, they have finer teeth for a smooth precision cut. The best part is, that if you have had one for a while, you can have it updated (G44U), including new blade. We still have the older G44A blades in stock but, we highly recommend this update, as a splendid improvement. Note: Slot about .030 to .040 (.75mm to 1.0mm deep)

N79 FLUTE PAD HOLE PUNCH SET
The N79 N79Y set is designed to punch larger holes in standard flute pads for use on open hole French type flutes, so that Repairmen need not carry two complete flute pad stocks. A set includes a punch and two brass centering dies to hold the pads. Since each centering die has a different pad size on each end, there is a total four pad sizes available (17.5,18,18.5,19). The punch will automatically center itself and punch a neat hole when hit with a rawhide mallet. Be sure to use a P28 Cutting Pad or an L24 Lead Block to protect the cutting edge of the punch. The special N79Y optional punch, is used to enlarge the hole in some flute pads having too small a hole to fit in Yamaha flutes with their raised flange spuds. All Ferrees pads fit without alteration. (Centering die sizes: 17.5, 18, 18.5 and 19)

Our Ferrees Corrosion Cracker Penetrating Oil is unbelievable. We put it on a cornet 1st valve slide that had been stuck for years. After allowing it to set overnight, the slide was REMOVED BY HAND, using no tools whatsoever. A recent scientific discovery reduces surface tension so that this amazing solvent creeps into openings as small as ONE MILLIONTH OF AN INCH. Some parts can be loosened immediately, others may require a little more time for the oil to work its way to the full length. BUT it will work! You can loosen valve and tuning slides, stuck or slow moving woodwind keys and stack rods, nuts, bolts, studs, screws, pulleys, shafts, bearings, pipe threads, valve guides or any other corroded metal parts.

Using Ferrees G19 Clear Magic makes it possible to glue together a plastic, rubber, ebonite or resonite clarinet that has been completely broken in half. If you have a G78 Clarinet Grafting Jig or a G74S Raised Tone Hole Jig, you can use either of them as a clamp to hold the parts together for precision gluing. If you do not have either of the mentioned tools, this tool will provide you a less expensive way to clamp and hold the body while the glue is curing. Using the N115 Clarinet Body Clamp. Carefully clean the broken ends with the G20S Jet Magic Solvent. Be sure the broken edges are free from grease, oil and dirt. Then, apply properly mixed G19 to the broken ends in such a way that you dont get a glob in the bore of the instrument when repositioning them back together. Next, slip the clarinet over the N115 Clarinet Body Centering Clamp and clamp the body together by tightening the knurled knobs. Let it cure for 24 to 36 hours. If any chips of material have been lost from the break, you can build up the spot by applying a fresh batch of G20 Jet Magic as needed. Allow the Jet Magic to cure between coats, then sand to match the body contour.

G85 OBOE CENTER TENON TOOLS
G50-G52 BASSOON TENON TOOLS

WOODWIND TOOLS

The G85 Oboe Center Tenon Tool has a hardened tool steel cutter to bore a hole in the joint. The design of the tool insures that the tone hole will be perfectly centered. Three tapered pilots have different diameters to fit all known oboe bores. The set consists of: Three tapered pilots One Cutter One tapered reamer Two pieces of ABS Select the tapered pilot that best fits the bore. Preload the cutter onto the pilot so it will be ready to form. The reamer is made of tool steel and/or hardened. Operate the lathe at a slow speed, approximately 200 rpm, and feed the oboe into the cutter by hand. Do not use the tail stock if the joint is warped. The next step is to make the new tenon. This procedure is greatly simplified by the use of the G85 Tapered Reamer. This reamer is made of tool steel and oil hardened. The reamer is engineered to make a tapered hole in the replacement tenon plug that will match the bore using your hand skills. After the tenon is completely formed inside and out, glue it into the instrument using G19 Clear Magic. This tool will turn an almost impossible repair job into one of the easiest repairs you can make, with the aid of only a small lathe.

These tools work similarly to the G84 Clarinet Tenon Tools, except that they have tapered pilots instead of cylindrical pilots.

G71 BELL TENON SETS G84 SMALL TENON SET

The taper of the arbor fits clarinet bores better and acts as a pilot; making a more accurate cut with less chance of the cutter drifting off center. The cutter is held in the lathe chuck and reversed to make the step cut, if necessary. You can do a better finished job than by trying to thread a new tenon in, or some other method. These tenons, when glued in with G19 Clear Magic, are as strong or stronger than the original tenon was in many cases.

Using a machine lathe, this tool eliminates the danger of splitting a clarinet when making cuts. Maintains a straight even cut of consistent diameter. Cutters are made of high speed tool steel, with maximum chip clearance. Brass pilots can be machined accurately as needed to fit any desired clarinet bore. These pilots do not cause friction and so eliminate the danger of softening rubber or plastic. The cutters are removable and easily re-sharpened.

G86 CLARINET TONE HOLE REPLACEMENT CUTTER SET G100 OBOE TONEHOLE REPLACEMENT CUTTER SET

WOODWIND TOOLS

The G86 cutters are used to machine a flat bottomed relief or socket, which will accept the tapered tone hole or raised tonehole chimney. You will make from an ABS rod or other material on a small lathe. A set consists of 11 cutters and 33 brass pilots. The cutters are made from tool steel, hardened for maximum durability. We recommend this new tool be used with the G74S Tone Hole Jig, which we have made for many years. The G74S should be clamped to the table of a drill press and the clarinet joint mounted for maximum rigidity while boring the socket. The large variety of brass pilots included make a good tight fit possible in any diameter tone hole. They center the cutter with the hole and help guide the cutter in for a straight reveal. The two flute design of the cutters, along with the brass eliminate all chatter that occasionally occurs with a fly cutter. Cutters run in size from 13/32 (10.3mm) thru 23/32 (18.3mm) in 1/32 (.8mm) steps. Set comes complete with a divided box which keeps the cutting edges from becoming damaged and keeps pilots from becoming lost.

The Oboe Tone Hole Cutter Set is a complete set of cutters designed to repair or replace tone holes on oboe joints. This set consists of ten brass pilots, eight flat cutters, and nine V angle shaped cutters. The flat cutters can be used to bore an old tone hole out so a new tone hole can be inserted. This is especially useful when a crack extends through a tone hole causing a leak. The flat cutters can also be used in conjunction with the angle cutters for repairing tone holes that are double cut with a flat section in the center of an angled tone hole. These flat cutters range in size from 5.5mm to 12mm. The cutters are made from hardened tool steel to hold a sharp edge. The pilots are made from brass and can be machined to fit any size tone hole. This fine set of cutters comes in a padded box with a lid, to protect them from being damaged and to keep the pilots from getting lost.

N17 BASSOON BOCAL DENT BALL CABLE H35 JOINT AND BARREL RING SHRINKING DIE WITH PRESSURE PLUGS

A tool to make bassoon dent work easier. The cable has a threaded connection in the middle that allows it to be split into two pieces. This permits putting a different N57G or N57GH dent ball on the cable without removing it from the bocal. It is constructed of high quality, galvanized, industrial cable and covered with nylon tubing. Nylon handles on each end of the cable let the technician easily insert and remove the dent ball.

Bassoon Bocal Cable

Eliminates using paper, cloth or other wedging methods. Shrinks barrel and joint rings on Bb and A clarinets. Does a nice job in just two or three minutes. Invaluable for all dealers and repairmen. Use with a good bench vise or mallet. Comes complete with two machined steel plungers. Note: The rings must be removed from the barrel or joint before using this tool.

Ferrees has long carried the Morgan Mouthpiece Refacing Kit. Designed by Henri Selmer in the 1880s and refined by Ralph Morgan over the years, the set includes one glass Direct Reading Gauge, one taper gauge, and five feeler gauges in sizes .0015, .010, .024, .034 and .050. Also included is an instruction booklet which walks you through the various stages. These are comparison tools, there are no rules! It is all hand work with no rules! It is ALL hand work with no magic and no forgiveness. This work is an art. A combination of common sense and acquired skill, tempered with judgment and experience. You can not rush the work. Practice is perfection. Sadly, Ralph Morgan passed away this past summer, this was his gift to the woodwind aficionado.

H76 TAPERED GLUE PLUGS


Here is the easy answer to a chipped inside edge of a woodwind tone hole. Insert a Tapered Glue Plug in the bad tone hole. Then using the H75 Hot Stuff Glue and Grenadilla Chip Kit, fill in the chipped area. The Tapered Glue Plug keeps the repair perfectly round like the original tone hole. All thats left to do is smoothing and flattening the top of the tone hole. Now you have fast, virtually undetectable repair. The delrin plug will not stick to the glue.

These boards make it possible for one person to disassemble an instrument and have another reassemble it without any guesswork, regardless of the amount of time which may have elapsed. Boards show shape of keys and allow provision for rod, pivot screws and springs. This is especially helpful for oboes, bassoons and saxophones. Handy for clarinets and flutes, too.

*NEW* G107 PRECISION BARREL REAMER
With this reamer you can bore out the barrel to match the bore of the clarinet body and you can also match the bore of the barrel to meet the bore of the mouthpiece. Measure accurately so that you dont overbore the barrel. This tool has been used for several years by repairmen heavily involved in custom clarinet modifications. Used in conjunction with G56 Clarinet Bore Measuring Tool.

Black delrin solid rods. The three smallest sizes are available in both 6 (15.2cm) and 12 (30.5cm). The larger sizes are available only in 12 (30.5cm) lengths. YOU CANNOT GLUE DELRIN.

Clarinet manufacturers spend thousands of dollars to perfect the inside boring of a clarinet joint to make it absolutely smooth. However, when we measured the inside diameter of hundreds of clarinet tuning barrels and compared them to the inside diameters of the top tenon of the first joint we found there was a considerable difference, enough of a difference to make a noticeable step in the bore. Quick and easy way to measure clarinet bores. Compare the bore of the top joint with the bore of the barrel that you are using or have just purchased. If the barrel is smaller, you may want to match the bore to the top joint using the G107 Precision Barrel Reamer. You may also want to match the bore of the mouthpiece. We recommend measuring the bottom bore of the barrel first; that way, you can see the difference when you install the probe into the top joint bore. To measure; loosen the set screw slightly and carefully insert the graduated aluminum probe into the bore, slide the brass housing down to where it bottoms out in the socket, lightly tighten the set screw and remove the unit from the bore. The end of the brass housing will be marking where the bore size is. Use your dial calipers or micrometers to measure the aluminum probe at that point. Write down the size and proceed to measure the other parts, similarly.

F20 KEY PIN REMOVING TOOL


This is a very versatile tool. In addition to flute key pin removal, many stubborn woodwind springs can also be removed with the F20 Key Pin Tool. And, you can be as fast as the factory in flute key pin removal. The set consists of a frame, three anvils and three punches. The brass anvils designed so that they can fit any key configuration. Newly improved model has the punch spring loaded for stability.

F21A Short Pinning Needles (by the dozen) F21B Long Pinning Needles (by the dozen)

ANVILS
The short brass anvil fits most keys. If you find a key that needs a custom fit, use the small lead filled anvil. This is similar to the old way of removing pins using a lead block and hand held punch. The third anvil is tall and made of brass. Use it to reinstall the pins when assembling the key.

PUNCHES
The three punches are made out of tool steel and have been hardened and tempered. One punch has a sharp point for the pins that are ground off flush with the key. The second punch has a small flat end on the end and the third has a concaved punching surface which works best on pins that protrude from the key or when reinstalling pins in the key.

INSTRUCTIONS
To use the F20 Key Pin Removal Tool, install the proper fitting anvil into the base. Place the key on the anvil and slide the punch down to contact the pin. Then tap the punch to remove the pin.

Seems the Buffet clarinet nibs (nubs) on the C# & Low B Levers are plastic and they break. We got word that the easiest way to fix them is to make a replacement from 2mm weedwacker cord. Just pull a little bit in your bench motor, carefully round off the end sticking out with a small file or something and then take the piece and glue it into the key. Looks factory and is likely tougher.
