I had the urge to replace the old pegs of my cheap fiddle as they weren't turning smoothly. Here's a few pics. You can see from the photo that the old pegs, though black, were certainly not ebony. I practised on the one on the left with my home made peg shaper and the blackness all came off!
The old pegs:
Just seen the post - good stuff @--Jim-- Dunleavy.
I may be embarking on a similar venture to replace the pegs on my 3/4 E-bay fiddle. It's quite old (late 1920's) and has clearly been played a LOT over its lifetime.
Although the pegs grip, and adjust easily, the peg-box holes are either heavily worn through use (the pegs protrude pretty far on the far-side - and there is only one fine-tuner on the E) or it has been reamed out sometime in the past. I may need over-size pegs to sort this, or even plain un-tapered blanks if I can taper them down. There's no hurry though - the fiddle is fine as it is - I like its sound and if I even bother, it'll be a job for the autumn/winter nights anyway !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
