Wagner I can't quite make it out, but is there more to add to the beat adjuster?

Hi David,

There is two screws that goers into the square parts. I'm figuring out a way of knurling on the CNC.

Wagner, absolutely beautiful work. I am not sure I would have the patience to complete such a complicated project. That is an heirloom that your family will treasure for years to come. Thank you for sharing your wonderful skills!

Did you broach the keys conventionally?

Oh and hurry up and fix that lathe, this is very interesting.

Hi guys,

Nothing really bad with the lathe; just the potentiometer; It should arrive today.

The keys are formed out of 5 parts. 4 strips soldered together into a square, then turned round on the lathe and finally Loctited inside a round tube.

Wagner did you use "soft solder" or "hard" as in silver bearing solder?

Hi David

Since the load is supported by the external tube, I've used soft solder, the caind used in electronics.

Hi David,

Yes, everything with a curve in it was made in the CNC
The white stuff is still coming down; 25 inches so far.
Not usual around here (Could this at least be on workdays....)

Wagner, once you have cut out the shapes, how do you break all the sharp corners / edges?

Still looking awesome.

Hi David

File and a lot of sandpaper. 220, 320, 500, 600 on all faces. Then 500/600 on the edges.

This parts (and most off the others) will be polished and coated with lacquer lather.
At least, this is the plan.

Awesome Wagner!. Were you adjusting the beat during the movie? At one point it sounded like it was slightly out of beat and then seemed better.

Fiddling with all the adjustments.
Surprised on how ease was to make it run for the first time.
The beat is easily adjusted by the two screws on the fork. The drop is another story... and to make the teeth fall on the dead face of the pallets took a while.
Needs more swing also.
