Drone Stock Blue print

Post by wingasia »

I am looking for detailed blue prints for a Drone Stock. I do not understand the interior design for either Hollow Stocks or Solid Stocks. I want to make one from plastic stock before I try on wood. I understand the exterior design. I need to understand how to drill the drone and regulator holes, depth, angle (?) and how to drill the stop valve. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I have the prints from Pipers club IE.

If there are files save here, please educate me on how to find them.

Tell us something.: John McSherry total control, Davy Spillane tonal beauty, and Finbar Furey raw energy. Imagine them combined :)

This is a very complex subject - I would recommend this PDF for start by Maestro Bill Haneman himself

Tell us something.: I'm back in the uilleann piping world after a ten year hiatus. Uilleann piping chops, here I come!

I'm a smallpipe and Border pipe maker and we'll just see where that leads to.

Have you perused the vastness of blueprints on both pipers.ie and http://seanreidsociety.org/ ?

I prefer "solid stock".
