      Yes. Donald doesn't even own a lathe, so far as I know.

        Calum, did you read the the Lindsrument web site?
        If you click on the following link and read the whole page, you will get instructions on assembly of the small sections and caveat on the time required to print.

          Eppur si muove.

          I am just about old enough to remember expert machinists demonstrate they could do anything a CNC lathe could do, just as quickly and accurately, and without a designer or software or expensive machine. And they were right. Were.

            I was wondering about this as well. Wikipedia says they manufacture about 40 sets a week, which is probably phenomenal for a pipe maker. But I did wonder if even those numbers could pay for all their equipment.

              Ha, Ha, you must have been p*ssing your pants young, CNC has come a long way since then.

                Ya know, you're absolutely right! I had merely skimmed the description of the chanter. I guess what threw me was the 6 month lead time. I wish he'd offer the printing files for the scottish smallpipes, because THAT would definitely be my next project.
