    I've just had a custom made trigger fitted to my newly acquired globe stamp euph. And what a difference it makes.
    Engineered by Owen Wedgwood and fitted beautifully at a very reasonable price! Thanks Owen

    Hi Adrian,

    Sounds good.
    Do you think Owen could fit a custom trigger to a bach flugel horn?

    Take a few pictures Adrian then have them saved on your computer. When you are posting your reply you can attach them here by clicking on the small square that looks vaguely like a mountain range and sun in the sky. Upload them and post as normal and they should be here to view.

    Select the attachment tool (paperclip icon) and upload the images from your computer (hard drive). Select them as attachments when you post .

    Adrian,

    It sounds like you are using the 'insert image' symbol (the mountains and sun icon) which is OK but you need to upload the image to the web (say on Flickr or similar) to use this. If you have an account with them its pretty straightforward - upload the image, the copy and paste the link here when it asks for a url.

    The other way is to attach the image to your post by using the 'manage attachments' button under the main typing window. However there are some fairly strict file sizes with this (basically to keep our server costs sensible) - a .jpg can be a maximum of 390KB - which is tiny compared to the file sizes most digital cameras give you. You can reduce the file size by cranking up the compression when you save the file (I'd do a 'save as..') but you may find the photo looks horrible by the time you've whacked the compression up enough to add it as an attachement.

    I hope this helps - if not, feel free to PM me for my email address and I'll upload the pictures for you ;)

    Not at all. If you'd prefer I could have written quite an eloquent paragraph or two, but with the same basic request. :)

    It looks the part, well finished so well done to both the craftsman and yourself on the acquisition.
