Don't try this at home...   :)

 

Ok..   Have a Reciprocating saw and a old bow laying around?

 

What...  You broke your bridge and have a Reciprocating saw?

 

Broke another bridge, and would rather move the violin?

Definitely some humor there!

I love them! Too bad I don't have that tool, or else....He is pretty creative!

In one of his video, he rub the bridge side to side, shouldn't it be back and forth?

Yes pky, but it's all a joke. Not an advisable way of shaping the feet.

Exactly...   Everyone knows it's a pneumatic impact wrench that's needed for bridge shaping ;)    I found the guys videos funny, so I posted them in the "Breakroom" :)

Yeah, I knew it's a joke, I would do that unless I have a tool that moves smoothly and slower than what he has. I was talking about the bowing, it might be fun to try that out but I don't know if my arm is strong enough. My arm might be strong enough to hold that thing for a few measures or a short song like twinkle.
