Of course.I trust professional as well. ;-)
Yes, the book is on its way, but thank you for the hint anyway. Much appreciated.Now that you are doing repairs professionally, you may want to get Reg Thorpe's "The Complete Woodwind Repair Manual" if you don't have a copy already. For most techs I know it is the "Bible" of woodwind repair and a great reference book. Reg has got to be a genius to have accumulated that much knowledge in such a short period of time since instrument repair was his 2nd or 3rd career. You can tell he is British since he calls posts "pillars" and necks "crooks". I have met him and he is the most unassuming and modest gentleman you would ever meet.
Good luck in your new venture.
I was taught BE in school (which was before the internet age), and now I find myself constantly watching my "correct" spelling - not an easy task with English not being your native language. Per the Naming Of Things, I remember when I bought my first Haynes Motorbike repair manual there was a section dedicated "to the American reader" with a glossary of many British terms.
