I just wrapped up a video and all of my latest invention. I thought some of you harpers out there who get into embossing might be interested. . .

Seriously, I've tackled the job of filing reeds and adjusting gaps a few times - sometimes I've even done some good.

The ingenuity and know how you're demonstrating here impresses the hell out of me. You had me from the little model of the reed plate.
