    Hi There,

    i am Thomas form Neckartenzlingen. About 20km south of Stuttgart, Germany.
    I'm a trained mechanic with specialization of 3D-Construction, CNC-Turning and -Milling.
    I found this Forum via Joerg's Youtube Channel of which I am a great fan.
    I found it that interesting, that i registered here, just to see whats going on and what the current state is. Just to learn more.


    For those who want to know more:
    In my spare time i help a friend of mine to produce important parts for his Bagpipes.
    Some time ago i worked on Bronze-Core-Casting especially for Quillons and End-Knobs for Swords.
    Further on, i am the Drummer of my medieval bagpipeband called "Mityundus"
    Some time ago i Recorded some Videos out of my workshop.
    Which can be viewed here:
    My Youtube Channel

    Please dont take the "Trumscheit des Grauens" Video for serious.
    It is a parody and must not seen politically. it was recorded at 2 o'clock in the morning.

    As the master says:
    Thanks and bye bye

    Hello and welcome! Wow, it sounds like you stay really busy with your work and your hobbies! I love bagpipes, wish I could afford a set, and it must be interesting making parts for such an intricate instrument.

    Hi Will,

    yes its very interesting. As long as you get used to a neverending nerve wracking. :)
    Luckily, i do the CNC-machinable parts like Bodies for Dronereeds or Brass Staples.
    As well as those crazy conical drills which start at a diameter 3.5mm and end on 20mm over a length of 30cm+...

    The thing is... my work is my hobby. In a quiet minute, i realize that i get paid for a very cool hobby... each and every day.

    Are you interested in Bagpipes? Which kind? Scottish? Irish?...
    But yeah... its very expensive. Unfortunately.
    But often its a handcrafted masterpiece and worth the money.
