Ive had an old scotch goose call for 15 odd years and the plurry thing has driven me nuts Mad everytime Ive gone to use it. it would squeel Confused or break at the wrong time and no matter how much I shifted the reed I just wasnt happy with it Mad . Tonight I got serious and dug out a old window scrapper/credit card type thinggy and took to it with the sissors to cut a new reed similar to the original from the caller. I tried it and it wasnt too bad but with similar tendasies to the original. soo I got out a sharp knife and shaved/scrapped it down to make it thinner tried it again, tootooed a bit more shaved a bit more tootooed abit more and Bobs your uncle shes a goer Very Happy . sounds better than new and I can do a good parrie call on it too. If you have an old caller give it a whirl it took about half a hour and was quite alot of fun Very Happy .

Elvis, technicians use a kind of filler blades to line out machinery/bearings. These blades come in different thicknesses and are available in stainless steel. I used a stainless steel filler of 0,1 mm sold by SKF (bearingproducer) to repair my duck/crow -call and it's working better than before.

Shim-stock fixes everything!

Elvis is a do-er, not a whiner, fixes it and gets on with life. Cool

We gots ducks that land in our pool at times, come over from the wetlands. I like trying to coax them in for a pass from my balcony. Kinda gotta be careful about that, some like it and sometimes take up roost, then it's off limits to the jacuzzi cuz of the tree-huggers! Pretty tricky landing but they do it with style. Then they battle over the jacuzzi- pretty funny. Ducks are pretty neat critters.

pretty neat alright esecially just out of the crockpot with roast spuds n pumpkin on the side mmmmmm
finally got some pictures up for you Vince
the top call is a pit boss goose call
the black rubber funny looking thing is a primos shaker
the brown plastic is a duck commander brown sugar a real honey of a call
the call taken apart is a olt dr112 great for big water or grabbing attention
the longer wooden call a olt66 the best up close n quiet call around great to use but Nathan has pinched it now I have the brown sugar.
the green machine is my old scotch goose call with new doctored reed cut from the card shown, the parries like the sound and ol Harry hawk comes over for a look when I blow it so the sound must be ok.
