Yes you are correct, sparks did fly and all the luthiers had great conversations and shared many ideas. We are a friendly bunch and happy to help each other out. One of my main areas of discussion was indeed sharping levers.
I haven't really been a fan of them, I dont like the look and they can be tricky beasts to get good intonation especially on the heaviest bass strings but it certainly is possible. I have used the Truitts in the past and have ordered a few other types to run trials with. I have a couple of guitars on order that will be getting levers so yes my arm can be twisted on this.
If you need Sharping levers then get in touch and we can work it out.
