Over many years of building various keyboard instruments I have collected a wide and varied assortment of materials. Some quite precious and some not so. I often tell myself that this is the year I will use that veneer or that I have just the project for those hinges I've been saving.

Time's up! Some things will just never get done and though I may well regret it, I am doing a serious spring cleaning and some of my collection will have to go. Take a look and check back often as items will certainly come and go quickly.














Brass Hinges - These hinges were made by a well known maker and are the highest quality


Threaded pins - These pins were often used under harpsichord jacks for height regulation. They are drilled and threaded. Four sizes available.

                          A          B          C          D

Total length       1 7/8"    1 1/2"    1 1/4"    13/16"

Shank length     1 1/4"      7/8"       1/2"        1/4"        

Shank Diameter    1/8"    3/16"     3/16"      3/16"

Key coverings - Black plastic key coverings. Now out of fashion for most harpsichord builders, these unique sets are a rare find. Use them for an instrument or just keep them around because they're cool. But them by the octave or the fifth. A limited number of key-front strips are also available.

Exotic Woods - Very high quality Ebony, Rosewood, and assorted other exotics in small but usable sizes. I have very nice material that is great for guitar bridges and nuts, inlay work and accents. Some of this material is quite old and I just don't think I will ever have the time to use it. Maybe you do.

Veneer - beautiful veneer in Burls, Crotches, matched sets, and cutoffs. If you don't see what you want just ask, I may have what you are looking for.

Music Wire - various types of music wire by the string, foot, or pound. I have limited quantities of soft iron, low tensile and high tensile steel, steel hex wire, and closed wound copper over steel wire.
