Yo,BazzDogz:

I need the help of you experts-Bob G,Rick Laird(Did you write the Jazz Riffs book,thats bending my cerebral cortex out of shape?)and Senor Andreas Semilla(Andy Seed).

You all are familiar with the on-going saga of "La Rancharita",my recently acquired 5/8(mas o menos)size Mexican DB of unknown paternity and a sorted past.

Tonight,I will attempt to:
1}Epoxy a thin sheet of wood around the endpin in order to stop it from pulling diagonally out of its hole.
2)Replace the bailing wire holding the tailpiece with aircraft cable and a brass hex nut collar(from Lemur).
3)Restring with Corelli 370 Fort Tirant.

Please advise,especially about the proper way to tie the stings on the tuning machines. I tried to find a website on Bob G's list to tell how to do this,but without success.

FRANCIS X.
