New "Knife" hinge for front panel (foreground) with old one still mounted.
Repeat on other side...
Work much better than the worn out originals.
Two layers of very thin nameboard felt...
Were replaced with this much thicker felt.
And looks better!
While I was working with the music reader system, I also finally found some parts that I had been unable to earlier: New knife hinges and nameboard felt of the correct thickness. The old knife hinges wouldn't hold the front panel in a tilted position, and as I noted on 30 July 2005, I needed thicker nameboard felt. In the meantime, I had added a second strip of thin felt over the first, then when I varnished the cabinet, varnish got onto same. So I was glad to finally find the thicker stuff.
More to come!
