Once the workshop of the brass instrument maker looked as shown left in the picture. Still today it is mainly manual work but precision has substantially improved thanks to the most modern technology we use, therefore we have nowadays some heavy machines located in our workshop to decrease or at least supplement a part of the manual work. From the main entrance one comes practically directly into our workshop, come in and watch:

The handle of our entry door symbolizes already what greets the visitor.
Christian Finke (left) and co-worker when polishing. We polish three times: Pre polish, white polish and high polish.
The polish machine doesnt reach the gaps, these must be polished by hand with liquid polishing paste and rag.
Polished tuning slides for french horns and recently prepared pieces of horn bells ready to be polished.
A simple mechanical rotating machine to manufacture small articles among other things.
Polished instruments ready to be laquered later.

The valve casings are perfectioned with a tolerance by 5/1000mm after soldering together.
A part of our workshop with the work benches where the instruments are built and soldered.
Complete soldered machines for triple horns. Because of the three rows these machines are particularly complex, this is the most tricky part of the work of building a triple horn.

Blanks (curved bells) and half soldered instruments wait for the next building process.
