Subj: Re: Clarinet Swedging Tools
Most repairers eventually have many swedging tools because it depends on the key and what you want to do. The Ferree's collet swedger is a good starting point. It's very good for swedging axial play, ok but

For tone holes, I have the set from Boehm which is a type of hand tool for small finishing of tone holes. Others (Ferree's, Allied maybe) sell pretty similar tools. This is 14 sizes of files. I think t

Hi, David :) What's 'Kooky', your questions or your observations ??? :) Both seem randomly okay to me.... Swedgeing is accomplished by using swedgeing pliers* to compress key hinge tubes. This is done, usuall

I assume you mean hinge tubes as opposed to hinge rods with pivot screws, which are usually not swedged (there are exceptions). Shims have a lot of down sides. They only help with the less cr

I'm not at work now to check, but I think the collet tool can work on as little as 1/8" / 3mm at the end of the key. I usually only swedge the ends. I'm more concerned about some keys than others. Swedgin

I use the Ferrees tool for almost all my swedging, but I've become very skillful with it over the years. I once heard another repair tech disparage the tool. I guess he became skillful with pliers. One pr

For play in pivot TUBES, a valid alternative to fitting larger shafts, often used by technicians, is to 'swedge' (industry term - not in the dictionary) the tubes. One uses specialised swedging tools to squeeze the t

At least in English it's called "swedging" and done with swedging piers. I think I've seen it spelled "swaging" in some places. As to why swedging is better than shimming, I don't know the answer, b

Subj: Re: What is swedging?
There is a soldering, not welding term, that you may be thinking of. It is "sweating", short for sweat-soldering. Its sometimes used on copper pipes. Swedging is, as Mr. Botch says, a way to make keys fit better. Common

I believe the word you are looking for is swedging. Swedging is used more for reducing the diameter of hinge tubes so they fit more snugly on the rods. No bending or pulling is necessary, th
