 Learning repair
Author: Bill

At 59, I've decided to start working on a dream/goal I've had for a long time: to work on my own instruments.

I've got Larry Frank's book, Reg Thorpe's book, a copy of Eric Brand from the 1940's (3rd edition!), a few tools from Ferree's, a bunch of YouTube videos, the articles by Steve Prescott here on Woodwind.org, and ... NO idea how to measure and order pads!

To soak the joints in almond oil *or not*. My head is spinning!

I'm starting with a (no need to say "old" -- all my clarinets are old) "Bohemia" Kohlert Bb.

I'm also learning Oehler system. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Any advice gladly received!
