A calipers or any like gadget isuseful to pass the slip through to ensure that it is less than i. When reed iscompleted, youll find the head is i- full. Clean the wood from the slip with woodchisel and run the edges on fine sandpaper until perfectly straight.Fig. 2 Place slip in running board and hollow out wood from centre to ends until thehollow is universal. Rub edges again lightly on fine sandpaper on level board.Fig. 3 Measure from each end and draw a line across. Draw centre lines fromthese to ends.Fig. 4 With sharp knife or razor, cut or pare the corners away to near the centre lineat the end of slip.Fig. 5 On the running board gouge out hollow from mark to the shank at end ofreeds. This is to make the bed in which the staple will be inserted later on.Fig. 6 Put a piece of sandpaper around a large cork and sandpaper from ends to centre,until a clean hollow is formed, free from bumps and scratches.Fig. 7 Put slip, cane side upon rolling pin. Mark 1 in from both ends, a line acrosscentre and a straight line lengthways along the slip. Put your thumb nail on the inchmark and scrape with razor from there to centre on both ends, allowing the sameamount of cane to remdin from thumb nail to centre.Fig. 8 With slip on pin cut straight across reed and offer both sides together. See thata perfect eye has formed. Rub each end on sandpaper on pin to get a perfect eye onthe lips.Fig. 9 Tie both heads together with raw hemp tightly. Chamfer the shanks of the reedswith knife and sandpaper so as to make the shank turn around staple.Fig. 10 Put Secotine on staple and enter it up between the shanks until you are sure thechamfered ends will go around the staple; then bind with raw hemp.Fig. 11 Clean around with sandpaper where required and make a 6 waxen hemp (sticky).Start winding antiClockwise to about 4-. Reverse the reed and holding the staple inright hand wind.clockwise up the staple until the sides of the reed are closed and air-tight. Wind back to end of staple and up to the start. The winding should be verytight, close with no overlapping.Fig. 12 Holding the head in the right hand, put the reed on a level board and roll withpalm of right hcr d until a good airtight and shapely reed has formed.8
