    I left you a reply on your other post (parts wanted) offering to fabricate you a new underslung octave key. It doesn't sound like that is what you need. I'll Email you a picture of the octave linkage off of my Silverplated underslung 10M, and see if that helps you. Mike.

          I emailed the information to you regarding the keywork. I think you mean a 16M, not a 17M. That one is going to be a tricky thing to find, short of having a custom one made for you, such as Gloger, Oleg etc. Great workmanship on these, but VERY pricey.

          I was searching hi and low for a 10M neck for a friend, and have been unable to locate one. my tech has a bunch of parts, and thought he might have one, but we looked and he doesn't. Sorry firk. I wonder if you have the right neck for your horn? I would just keep my eyes open on ebay in hopes of finding a parts horn or something. Good luck, Jim
