Thread Name: leaks fixed - cheap (recorder repair)
Subject: RE: leaks fixed - cheap (recorder repair)
Bill D, I have a recorder with a cork joint that isn't tight enough. So far a piece of Scotch Magic Tape has fixed the problem.

Have you kept the corks greased?

Now, about the trick of a few windings of thread - how do you keep the thread in place? So it isn't pushed down when you put the sections together?
Sunday my friends were over, playing early music. Halfway through the evening, I glanced at the back porch next door. Their drunken, troubled uncle was sitting in the dark, listening to us play. He told me later that the music was "soothing." Nice.
