N79 N79 FLUTE PAD HOLE PUNCH SET

The N79 set is designed to punch larger holes in standard flute pads for use on open hole French type flutes, so that Repairmen need not carry two complete flute pad stocks. A set includes a punch and two brass centering dies to hold the pads. Since each centering die has a different pad size on each end, there is a total four pad sizes available (17.5,18,18.5,19). The punch will automatically center itself and punch a neat hole when hit with a rawhide mallet. Be sure to use a P28 Cutting Pad or an L24 Lead Block to protect the cutting edge of the punch.

The special N79Y optional punch, is used to en-large the hole in some flute pads having too small a hole to fit in Yamaha flutes with their raised flange spuds. All Ferree’s pads fit without alteration.

(Centering die sizes: 17.5, 18, 18.5 and 19)

E100E100 FLUTE KEY ARM BENDING SET

Complete with 10-pad cup dies, 2-formed drivers, 1-brass jaw with one Teflon face and 1-2” X 2” patch of Teflon to make small cushion pads for the drivers.

Now you can bend or re-bend keys to give the proper attack angle to a tone hole WITHOUT distorting the pad cup in the process. By using this key arm bending set, you can “dial in” the proper angle for the pad to be perfectly level with the tone hole without using a big stack of washers or making the pad too high out of the cup than the rest on the pads on the instrument. This tool set works with either Plateau or French model instruments. It doesn’t take much power to do. Use just a slight tap with a rawhide mallet to ‘tunk’ the arm, using the supplied driver.

With this complete set of dies, 15.5mm thru 20mm, you can, at last, correct factory or previous repair miscues by setting the pad projection to your standard and have the pad hit the tone hole in level fashion. Especially handy for installing some of those “special pad and base washer combo’s” that some people are experimenting with now.

The two special drivers, (one-blunt chisel for forged keys and the other a split fork for the French style sculpted keys) fit the pad cup key arm profiles. The special made brass jaw is coated on one side with a Teflon pad so that the pad cup doesn’t get scratched. The Teflon patch is provided so that you may cut small cushions for the drivers to give some help in protecting sterling keys or brand new plated ones.
