Default Carbon banding crack repair

Hi all! I'm just getting back into piping after a hiatus of a couple of years. A lot has changed. At any rate, I was just on a piping FB page discussing crack repair. I don't if anyone is aware of the carbon banding method, so I thought I'd pass along some I info. I used to work in a band and orchestra repair shop and this was pretty new at the time. I've seen it work on an oboe, and back then I thought you it had great applications for the pipes. I never actually did this myself and don't have a lathe with which to do it now, so I'm not advertising. I just thought this was too neat not to pass along. Enjoy. Let me know if you try it...

Interesting, thanks for the post. Could also be a preemptive technique to use before installing ferrules.

Would this method, or other similar techniques (whipping), close up the crack? Or is the thought just to prevent the crack from growing further?

It would seem forcing a crack closed would just transfer the stress elsewhere.

Just thinking out loud, I guess.

I've not used the carbon fiber technique, but I have done a fair bit of "invisible whipping" on damaged pipes. In my experience, unless the wood is very, very thin (say the end of a tuning pin) there is little way to put enough force on the binding to actually close a crack. The crack needs to be filled and repaired as a separate step and the binding will stabilize it.

Makes sense, Jay, that's what I was thinking.

Thanks!
