Thread Name: leaks fixed - cheap (recorder repair)
Subject: RE: leaks fixed - cheap
Reminds me of an odd remedy, non-musical, but still interesting, from Antiques Roadshow. A woman had an old papoose board, although it was only leather with no board attached. It was mishappen and dry. They told her to encase it in plastic, overnight, with Wonder Bread, which would rehydrate it, then take it out and stuff it with crunched up paper to regain the shape as if an infant was in it. Wonder bread of all things!

I also heard that having a child learn the oboe was an acceptable way to correct an overbite!
