    Default Useful tools

    I made this troji. It helps when scraping and sanding sides. IMG_20200908_132714.jpg

    and I found these dentist tools from flea market. Very useful for cleaning glue etc. Mirror is handful when investigating inside instrument. I love to see how braces are made when I see new ukulele. I ordered one reasonable priced Ohana and when I looked inside, I saw that one of braces are broken. That broken brace doesnt make any hearable sound, but I sent uke back becouse it was new one and I dont
    want new broken one. IMG_20200908_141244.jpg

    I agree about the collection of pointy tools - very handy.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    The troji is cool

    I have a better solution for the troji though- i'm yet to make a video on it (and will soon). It's a far more simple solution and takes 20 seconds to break down to nothing.

    A very simple and sturdy alternative to the Troji is this set up. A couple of plumbing pipe offsets and some stubby pipe clamps.
