Yes, I'm in SlipSlider zone at present! Hope to get all the variations and different brands/models out this week, then I can move on to other designs/ideas.

For harmonica customisers and players who like to work on their own harps, here's a video showing the 'from scratch' raw parts SlipSlider option:

It goes with a second video showing how to assemble the finished parts to the harp. It plus pics of the latest coloured-comb versions are here:

Are probably buying a sanding jig to Seydel powerbender Slipslider. You talked about extend the Seydel slipslider. Does the slipslider still fit the sanding jig after the extension?

Good point - no, we'll have to make a longer jig for the Seydel SlipSlider.

Bit of a delay with releasing the other brand SlipSliders, had a gig in London that took quite a bit of time in rehearsals and travel etc. Note to self: don't make promises on release dates, life tends to get in the way. But we'll get there in time...

The specially-designed SlipSlider comb to Seydel powerbender/draw is simpler to use but that does not mean that they are simpler to design or assembling?

A bit simpler in construction/assembly, because no rocker-arm reed dampener is required for PowerBender and PowerDraw tuned SlipSlider harps. Otherwise they are use the same number of parts.

Their combs look a bit different because they have a regular pattern in the tines; Richter and similar harps change orientation at hole seven.

Still little annoying that Seydel needs embossing/reed gapping to work properly :|
