hi scott.i obtained the plans from the national museum in Germany after studying Glyn Edmunds excellent site on building a hurdy gurdy (i'm sure you have seen it) he has been very helpful as well.
Anyway i am making the keybox,and have cut the square holes for the tangents(8mm x 4mm is that about right?) numbers 16 and 17 are very close and have broken though together,i am not happy about it but i cannot see what can be done (scale lenght is 345mm).
I may use the bone incidentals that you can get , I will get back to you on that one.
cheers for now dennis.

Hi Dennis,

I've not come across the Glyn Edmunds site. Do you have a link/address?

Hi Dennis
Because 16 and 17 are so close some makes (me included) make them as one hole and put a divider in after. Mine run in the same hole (haven't got around to putting in a divider yet :O))with the help of Neil's slippy stuff.
