No, I think that might have been me.
The Perticis drawing shows a construction sequence in the wrong order:
base, sides, frame, soundboard: instead of base, knees, frame, sides. Call
me nitpicky but I think its important, fundamental, to get the frame in
before the sides.
The delin drawing shows the jacks have a hole through which a pin is
inserted to attach it to the bellcrank: there is no observable way that the
jack can be detached or reattached without removing/inserting the pin. So
voicing, damper adjustment, plectrum replacement are not possible within the
normal span of a human lifetime. Delin uses a slot instead of a hole which
means that the jack can be tilted and withdrawn from the front of the
instrument, no need to get in behind and pull things apart.
