 Re: Recork glue

From what I've seen, the R13 has the wavy slots and the RC has the combed/grooved slots. In either case it's best to machine them flat to provide a larger surface area for the cork to bond to.

Leblanc clarinets had some pretty dreadful tenon slots as well, so again best machining the grooves down to flat. Older Selmers have grooved slots, but the grooves are shallow and fine and easy to flatten out by scraping them down by hand if you want to do that.

Deep grooves are fine for pushing molten shellac into and then levelling off the top to stick cork to using a heated spatula, but that's fine if you like using methods from the dark ages. Only things have progressed since then, but some makers continue to stick to past form instead of moving with the times (which also includes fitting adjustable thumbrest bases in the fixed position because that's where the screw holes are still being drilled and that crappy springing of the F#/C# key).

Chris.
