DISTANCES TO THIS LINE-------------------------->|


Overall chanter length is 14 5/16" (left end to right end of
diagram above)

Overall taper of chanter inner bore is 27/32 at big end to 5/32 at
other end - linear taper.

Overall dimension of chanter outside bore is 15/16 at big end
to 1/2 at other end - linear taper.

Two 3/8" diameter "air/sound holes" (not fingered) are drilled
opposite each other 2 5/8" from big end of chanter, & on sides (not
in line with finger holes)

"knob" just behind "plug-in" is 1 5/16 max diameter.

"plug-in" is 11/16 diameter by 15/16 long. This is where the
chanter plugs into the chanter-stock.

Thumb hole is obviously on the opposite side of finger holes.
