    Default 40mm Arm Rest Barrels

    Does anyone know where I can get 40 mm arm rest barrels? I am fitting a K&K Twin Fusion on my Weber OM and used a set of 38mm barrels that I had but, they are just a skosh short. The carpenter jack isn't secure enough. Thanks for any help.

    You know better what you are looking for but International Violin might have what you need on this page. You may need to register to see that page. And you may need viola chinrest hardware vs. violin. The site is short on info but if you email them they will get back to very quickly, even with minutes.

    I agree that International Violin is responsive to questions. I have made 2 arm rests using viola chinrest clamps. Works great for most mandolins.

    Hey, Steve at Cumberland acoustic has just about every size hardware for the viola chinrests (used for armrests in his case) up to maybe 60mm. Unless he's out of stock, he probably has exactly what you need!
