Made some clamps a a cello(or string bass) sits stable on the bench
2 Bach Trumpets, a Stomvi Picc, and 3 baritones in for ultrasonic cleaning…already did 3 trumpets and 2 baritones earlier this morning.
This was a nice pro level Yamaha alto that got dropped and dented in the top post assembly. I had to unsolder the octave pip (3rd Pic) to get to the area. In the 1st 2 pics you can see light leaking out where the tone holes are not level due to the damage. The 4th pic shows the finished work.
Thumb rest screws often blow out on clarinets. This shows the proper repair. Drill out the existing hole, glue in a piece of plastic rod, re-drill the hole and replace the thumb rest.
I don’t do a lot of drum repair, but I do change heads, replace hardware, and recover drum shells.
