very nice indeed, does this mean that you would be able to produce your incredible futuristic saxophone at a more affordable price and witha shorter waiting list?

I very much hope that, one day, before I am too old, I will be able to afford one of your creations!

That's the plan. I have one finished Tenor in stock now - ready to ship to who ever wants it. 4 more Tenors are lined up and I'll make all of them at once. 2 Altos are currently under construction (one is sold).

I think I saw you put out a video of building one of your creations a few years ago. Incredible work!

Roughed in body with toneholes

Heavy wall body cone (1mm thick) with toneholes roughed in. Black stains are from annealing the tonehole ellipses to prevent splitting when drawing toneholes.

Re: Roughed in body with toneholes

Tanks, wouldn’t it be better to keep all your updates in one thread instead of spreading it in several rivulets of new threads? You have many already as it is and probably there will be more in future.

Anyway.

Why did you chose for drawing toneholes? Is it a production streamlining?

I thought that you originally soldered toneholes.

I agree, it would be best to merge, Jim I have contacted you about this and we can go ahead and do that if you agree.

Drawn toneholes work out better everything considered. Less work as well.

Jim, hit "go advanced" (right between ""Post Quick Reply" and "Cancel") and you'll then have the ability to post additional pics to an existing thread.

Re: complete roughed in body

Jim, you don’t need to open new threads. You could edit or follow up the other thread and then "go advanced".

By clicking on the icon with the projection screen ( for lack of a better word) you get the ability to add new images either from your computer or from a hosting site (URL is where you paste the address on the hosting site)if you load from your computer don’t forget to upload as attachment).

You can do this reforming previous posts (but at some point you lose the ability to edit) or posting a new “ answer” to your ow thread.

Keeping all the images together will be way better than creating a rivulet of posts none of which will be found all that easily once they disappear from latest post view.

Try it.
