The High D and E keys are pretty self explanatory and quite obvious when you look at the wing / tenor joint.

I have only ever in 25 years come across one other extra mechanism that is not commonly found, and that was not shown on any chart but was documented in Baines wonderful book "Woodwind Instruments and their History". (*)

Every serious woodwind Tech should own a copy of this book, especially if you are ever going to restore really old instruments.

(*) ps. even the owner of the bassoon did not know that his instrument had the extra mechanism, let alone what it was for until I told him!
