Wood foundry pattern made by Bob Cathey that he used to sand cast archtop to flathead conversion tone rings.

Bob and his wife Bonnie advertised for many years in Bluegrass Unlimited for various supplies for builders. Bob cast his rings using a foundry in Wausau WI and then hand machined the castings in his shop. Bob sold his ring IP to Jim Stull to have JLS rings made though, according to Bob, wasn't closely followed.

Bob loaned me his pattern for full flatheads in the mid-1990s to make rings. Eventually I bought that pattern and the conversion ring pattern was part of the deal. I never used it for making rings and 2013 was the last year I made full flathead rings.

I've had this in my garage for a long time and I'd simply like to move it along. Make a reasonable offer, my last advertised price was $250 plus shipping.
