The reed blocks turned up promptly, as promised.
Very tidy they look, too. Thank you Brian.
Now I have a dilemma I have been mulling over since they turned up.

I have two 2 row Hohner boxes, one an old 1930's CF, 
      i) Which instrument do I put them in? Definitely easier to slip into the CF than the DG, but I really like playing the CF. The pokerwork is more, or less, a backup for when my main instrument is off for service, etc.
     ii) Do I modify the blocks, or the mounting arrangements in the boxes? Or, a mixture of both?

Anybody any thoughts?   
        hello greg, glad to see the project is coming along . if you like the CF and ought to keep it , maybe it is time to ask the forum for another box , to receive the " GC transplant "  .  there could be a  C ,C#  pokerwork gathering dust ,in some corner of the internet . each day takes us deeper into " maaddnneess"  .-   a fellow sufferer ,  brian n.

Great theme! I've enjoyed the entries so far.

There's one tune my family always requests me to play when I am around, and I happily oblige. It's become one of my favorites:

I hope you enjoy it. Here's the dots:

(Like those young girl CBA players someone linked to a while ago, but the costumes wouldn't suit me anyway.)

I have been selling both Scarlatti and Stephanelli melodeons for many years and have found them trouble free. Many people buy them from sites like Amazon and EBay and none of these sites gives a monkey about its playability, it’s just about how many they can shift.
At Red Cow Music we check every instrument, cheap or expensive to insure the instrument arrives ready to play. We also have a great back up of our workshop and advise on how to cure those simple hick ups.
So before you buy think about where you are buying from and talk to a good melodeon retailer, there aren’t many left but the ones that are, are there for a reason, Satisfied Customers.

Not sure if members are generally aware of this station, but and their app are a commercial/listener sponsored station playing a lot of nice stuff. 
And if you don't already live there, it gives you a nice taste. 
Good mix of trad and modern.  Decent stream. Check it out.

Yes, indeed.  Thank you!  And, thanks for the reminder of the whole genre.  Without hymns, many of us would have missed the very earliest “formal” group music experiences, which I know made me able to hum, whistle, even sing close to pitch.  How about a “TOTM” for “Hymns?”
