Throat Mandrels and Throat Reamers

Because of a recent request I decided to write about throat mandrels and reamers. In my shop I have several mandrels made the late by Lou Skinner.  I’m not sure he actually made them as I know he had a machinist do much of his metal working. My favorite is a # 10 throat reamer. I use this to open up the throat and tip. The reasons for a closed tip are variable. However, often the slight differences in cane will result in a tip a little more closed than you want it. If the second wire is very round you can open the tip by squeezing the second wire from the top and bottom. But, many times the wires seem to be as I want them and then I use the throat mandrel to open the tip.  I also have a throat mandrel from Forrests Music that I use on occasion but the parabolic curve is less dramatic. The reason for a closed throat relate to the proper use of the forming mandrel. If you don’t have the forming mandrel in the proper place when you tighten the wires before wrapping then often the throat will be too small. This is one of the most common mistakes I find in student reed blanks. So, I make sure that my mandrel is set in the proper place and most of the time I won’t need extra reamer and mandrel work.

I have two different throat reamers that I use to enlarge the tube when necessary. One of the reamers is from Forrests Music and the other I ordered from machine parts supplier as a reamer bit and assembled it with my pin mandrel.  I almost never ream my reeds but with some others’ reeds I have found it necessary.  It makes for a more open and, to me, a deeper sound. I welcome other opinions and questions on this topic.

Blue Meanie Mushroom is a Psilocybe Cubensis mushroom strain and are very a potent shroom strain. Named after another species of mushrooms called P. Cyanescens. This strain is known to be a prolific fruiter, although the fruits are small and known to easily bruise blue they are high strength in potency. Expect a euphoric experience that will transcend you through time and space. The trip should last between 3 and 6 hours depending on the amount you consume.

Want to enter a world of your own? Let the Shroom Microdose drown out the world around you and encapsulate you into your very own paradise of psychedelic wonders. The Blue Meanie high is described by an extremely uplifting and psychoactive sensation at a normal peaking frequency accompanied by intense auditory and visual hallucinations, euphoria, and a heavy body buzz. This strain has been reported to give users an even more psychedelic experience than easier-to-grow mushrooms, such as the Golden Teacher because it contains rich amounts of psilocin and psilocybin.

Death Star is the potent cross of Sensi Star and Sour Diesel and has the shared sativa and indica effects of its parents. It has a mixed taste that combines sweet, skunk, and fuel aromas into a very potent fragrance that isn’t easy to hide. This strain may not have the ability to destroy planets, but it does have quite the powerful buzz. Effects can be slow to onset, but once they do, Pink Star Strain takes away all cares and replaces them with a state of relaxed euphoria. Great for daytime or nighttime use, this Ohio native now has fans throughout the galaxy.

If you want to avoid eating dried magic mushrooms, consuming via a steeped tea is an excellent way to enjoy magic mushrooms. Some of the positives of a Shroom Tea is that the onset will be quicker than eating dried mushrooms and the taste more pleasant. Be warned the effects will be slightly shorter in overall length compared to eating magic mushrooms. For best results, let the Shroom Tea bag steep in hot but non-boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes.
