Subject: Re: Electric Tuning Forks



Frey sells them. I bought a few about two years ago. The quality is not
as good as the origionals. Some of the spot welds break after a little
use. Order a few spare.

Page 762 of my 2002 catalog.

Also some of my old ones were shorter than the new ones. This confused me
until I realiazed that I could adjust the position of the tuning fork.
The screw threads on the new ones did not match all of the old ones.
