Some Current Research Questions and Topics

Where are the Bliss bar clamps? (There are Aldrich made examples of bar clamps.)
PARTIAL ANSWER: I have seen a 6 foot R Bliss and Co pianoforte clamp. The screw did not end with a ferrule and pin, but instead had a 2 x 2 x 3 inch block, held onto the end of the screw by a frog engaging a groove. The headstock had the marker's mark.
