Bought a dremel.

And I’m going to have at the throat of the new chinrest myself, see how it goes. It’s just the chinrest, so I’m not too worried. I kept saying that I needed to bring it to my luthier and that if I only had a dremel, I would just do it myse–

Idiot. Go get one.

I also got some cork pads and will see if I can’t bump up the chinrest a bit since the cork is a bit thin. And I need to rout out the area that goes over the tailpiece as well as the actual chinrest throat, too. Should be interesting. If it goes well, I might also pick up some various grits of sandpaper and see if I can’t file down the top side of the rest and make it a bit more suitable for lefty use.
