I'm not sure what you mean by "linkages" - which places are they? Do you mean between the top LH (F#) ring and the thumb ring and the lever by which the LH F/C moves the RH key?

By "key feet" do you mean the "crow's foot" that links RH F/C to RH E/B and F#/C#? Do you have others in mind?

What is your opinion of leather on key feet? Do you find that felt tends to compress and need readjustment to keep everything closing properly?

I have no experience installing synthetic pads. Is there a reason why hot glue is better than shellac for them?

Is PTFE tape the same as Teflon tape? What kind of thread is actually best suited to this? I've seen bassoons and even a few recorders with tenons done permanently with thread, and I've wondered if there was a best thickness or material the thread should be.
