Not that I have enough projects, yesterday I received a Holton Super Collegiate, described as having dented bell, as photos showed the bell flair well damaged but otherwise instrument complete. Found, all slides and valve caps stuck, front brace separated from foot, leadpipe bent , third valve slide miss-aligned, bell to 1st slide and tuning slide lower receiver to 3rd slide brace roughly soldered, valves do move. Anticipated procedure, free slides and valve caps, thoroughly clean, strip lacquer, remove leadpipe and bell, effect repairs, reassemble and polish. Nickle silver is a b***** to repair, with careful annealing I am confident of moderate success. Making a Nickle silver Kranz for another project took 27 annealings to get the final shape. Not looking for an as new restoration, but for $99 it was hard to resist. Regards, Stuart.
