 Re: Moennig Barrels won't slide on
Author: Chris P

The difference between sockets and tenons fitting or not fitting is fractions of a millimetre. Even barrels of the same type made for the same model instrument won't always fit on other identical make/model instruments. If your own barrel is also a tight fit on the tenon, then you should have the tenon ring fitted so it fits easily. If a barrel isn't fitting on a tenon, then it's not likely to fit over time unless it gets fitted by a repairer. If anything, using a humidifier to increase humidity levels is only going to make things worse as the diameter of the tenon will increase and the inside diameter of the socket will get narrower.
