Re: [Harp-L] Harmonica repair... with the lights off

It all depends on how serious you are. Or lucky. One of the best -- if not 
the most complete -- repair video sets is by Rupert Oysler. 
Ruper Osyler offers an oustanding two-volumn DVD on how to repair harmonicas. 
Check out  _ (  for 
details about the video. The video covers all kinds of things you re interested 
in. Or you could send your harmonicas to him and get it done right. He does 
repairs. The videos are available in VHS and DVD, the web site says.

By the way, the videos "Harmonica Repair and Modification" and "How to 
Customize Your Harmonica" may be available at some on-line harmonica stores. Rupert 
was at the Buckeye fest and you could have gotten one from him at the Columbus 
gathering last weekend.
