Thanks Barry, I appreciate your reply. I suspect though that the problem is not a height adjusting issue. Up until yesterday it was working fine and I have altered nothing. The one screw I can turn to close it when fingering forked F also affects other notes and is best left alone. The spring tension is very light and I suspect that in the very cold weather, even though I warm the wood well before playing, perhaps the rod is binding enough so that the spring tension is not enough to close it. I generally do not play the forked F with the E flat key down - it is I think less important when you are playing ring system than plateau, and the resultant different tone colour is not that noticeable most of the time, and has its own interest.. I have emailed Richard Craig- I have a concert coming up in a few weeks and dont want to part with my oboe over any of that time if I can avoid it.
