Work much better than the worn out originals.

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!
