This instrument stand was made to fit a rebec on display at the Boston
Early Music Festival.
It's got some weight to it and is therefor fairly stable. It folds at
the pivot and becomes somewhat
smaller. The leather wraps were done with leather thong. Future
instrument stands will probably have the leather stitched or laced to
(soon to be a pair)
We got hold of some square tubing and y'know, when y' heat the stuff
up... there's a lot of fun to be had. If you're careful.
A new handle for the double-chamber bellows.
Made from 3/4"
square iron stock with a four inch wooden handle wrapped in leather.
This is the handle that you pull to actuate the double-chamber bellows
to pump air into our forge #3.
The leather strap goes up to a cast aluminum buckle (cast at the forge)
which allows us to adjust the height of the handle for each student.
The top of the leather ties into a rope that goes over a set of pulleys
in the ceiling and pulls up on the bottom board of the bellows.
The handle was made heavy to help counterbalance the weight of the
bottom board of the bellows.

the wall is solid, the holder isn't going anywhere.
