After stabilization, I re-tighten my wires that have loosened and clip the third wire close to the bark.  I wrap my reeds with #10 Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread.  I wrap with the colored thread closest to my desired color so that I can save on nail polish costs.  When I have wrapped about half the Turk’s head I wrap around the tube a couple of turns on the butt side of the blank in order to tighten the cane to the mandrel and make a nice round tube.  After applying two coats of Duco Cement I apply nail color as desired.  The glue covers the blank from the end of the tube up to the first wire.  The nail polish covers the thread and the tube all the way to the end.  I have tried hot, soft glue and found that it did not provide the support to the tube that thread does.  I have not tried shrink wrap but also question the support to the tube compared to thread.  Gluing between the first and second wire is usually omitted when using shrink wrap.  I question the effectiveness of the seal with this type of reed as it ages.  As with all my blogs please submit your comments and questions.

Great articles! I would like to put in a good word for shrink wrap, though. I learned this process from Leonard Sharrow in the late 70's and have sworn by it ever since. I have no problems with stability or longevity with my reeds. I do apply four to five coats of nail polish days before the shrink wrap and let the blanks settle for a lot longer than the previously recommended week. I don't know if this makes a difference, but I have been adding a small secondary piece of tubing (of a contrasting color) just below the second wire - more for differentiation (and my students love the color combos we come up). I am finding that the resulting reeds are consistently solid. Thanks again for your tips and advice - for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why my blades were slipping at times! Now I know.....thanks!

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.
