Who are these strange fellows?

Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !

The 'New-kulele' Saga p1.

Heres something KOolis acquired recently, and will be on the Manbench for a nice restoration once a few ongoing projects and work get off it....

This is a 'Dulcetta' Banjolele, circa 1910. Ill do some more research as work commences on the instrument, as well as add some posts of the work itself, and it should be a nice example come the end. I dont actually know how to play the ukulele but I'm sure I'll pick it up once this is in playable condition!
