OK. So last night I did the top tube of an old Beuscher plastic clarinet that needs complete repadding. The instrument is not something I care about all that much so I was happy to be 'experimenting' on it. I used a shellac stick that I had formed previously using furniture grade flakes that I had melted into an aluminium foil channel (think I found that idea somewhere on this forum). By the time I'd finished the top tube I'd done 11 pads and was pretty comfortable with the pad floating process (using a portasol butane gas torch).
So now I need to do my saxophone, for which I care about a little more. I only need to replace one pad (actually re-floating it may be enough) and really want to get on with it so the question is - is it OK to use this furniture grade shellac?
