Decided to go the YouTube route. I was given the violin by someone who found it at a Good Will Store. It had no bridge, was cracked in two places on the top and top was detached from side, to right of the tailpiece. No way to afford a Luthier's repair so I bought some instrument makers, "Old Brown Glue" (it is reverseable) and carefully glued everything shut with a minimum of glue. Bought 2 "Teller" bridges, broke one, adjusted the present one which seems to be working well. I replaced the pegs because the existing holes in the pegs had strings crossing in the peg box, much neater now. Added 4 fine tuners though I should have thought to get blackened ones. Am told by our church organist that it has good tone but have not had a chance to hear it played by someone who knows what they are doing. Have been practicing seriously for just over a month
