Making a new reed pan, assembly
The connecting walls are routed (like shown earlier with the plywood mistake). In the main walls of the pane tracks for the connecting walls are routed (also shown earlier). But this time it feels good - maple is so dense.

Considering the tools, the precision is acceptable when the thing is glued together in sections. Each section is clamped down onto a thick plane while the glue settles.

The end result feels good. It is then cut roughly in hex shape and sanded down so that it fits inside the bellows with approximately 1 mm distance to the bellows frame.


Connecting walls ready – major Dremel job. That machine is from 1974!


Connecting the puzzle


So – this time, I did it right!
