Opus IV hitchpin rail
As is the case with many instrument makers and craftsmen, I am loathe to dispose of even the most trivial bits and pieces of wood, ivory, and potentially useful bits and pieces of instruments that I have acquired over the years.
While a few of these instruments have been disposed of, as they were not in a state where restoration was practical or even possible, I managed to locate a simple, brass rose which I salvaged from a poorly constructed,
incomplete Zuckermann straight side, commonly known as a "Z Box."
