Re: Recycling a broken joint

Macallum learned eons ago it's faster and cheaper to replace rather than repair pipes.
Id try the repair route on an old set where the individual components are irreplaceable, not on a newer set.

Re: Britain to Ban Ivory Sales to Stamp Out 'Abhorrent' Trade

The vast majority of absolutely first class, vintage, instruments will have ivory on them...

Re: Britain to Ban Ivory Sales to Stamp Out 'Abhorrent' Trade

I've been researching this at length......Mainly because I do a lot of repairs on old pipes with Ivory.
