HAROLD POOLE'S
STULL SILVER BELL
WORKPAGE
12-13

Bad dowel
Bad Frets- Fingerboard divots
 Bad neck Angle up/down and side/side


Busted off the broke wood, will use this lag to my benefit


Plugging off


Gold plated adjustable rod, and L Bracket tailpiece hanger is going to be its new life.


Ready to pull frets and level board


Level and slots repaired, going back in with Stewmac 147 wire


Replacing all colors of stones that are missing


Pressing, and sealing new wire as I go


Complete, board taking on oil.
Before it had a finish on it that was ugly so now its natural wood, warmer looking


Refinishing the gravings, then a little clear over just the paint work


Removing plastic nut, new German Bone nut installed


All complete, ready to install


Neck shimmed to proper angles and set tight, and has settled in 2 days
All setup went well, plays well up and down on 9/16 to 5/8 bridges with lots of pep and playability
 


All waxed up and ready to come to Dallas

Banjo is now pleasant to fret and has a good look and feel, I think Poole will be happy
Thanks for watching
Vinnie
