A few days later and I have mounted the turning wheel on the hurdy-gurdy. This is a precise job because the sound and the operation of the turning wheel depend on it. For example, if the wheel is swinging, the strings will not all be hit the same and the sound will not be 100% clean. It is a lot of work but if I pay a lot of time and attention to it, the end result will be all the better. It is not a lost effort.

 

I started a new project today. I have again found a beautiful old guitar that I suspect is very suitable to turn into a hurdy-gurdy and produce a beautiful sound. I have removed the front and the guitar neck and I am working on the assembly of the peg block and mounting the interior. This is the basis where later the parts for the turning wheel are mounted. This is it for now, see the picture below.
