The most of the makers keeps their plans safe and hidden, they're quite hard to find on internet. You can find a plans for a Gaita Sanabresa in C surfing to http://www.es-aqui.com/payno/colabora/aliste_gaita.htm, it's an instrument quite similar to old Galician gaitas. I'll try to get some plans for you, give some days.
Cheers

I actually know of that one. What I do not know why the most important thing, the inner/outer diameters have not been given. Without that the plan is completely useless.

Hi Yuri,
I know some of your instrument making from Dunsire list. Nice work :-)
I'm making a "C"chanter out of epoxy
that is based on estimates from what I have looked at at the Seivane site.
So far it has the major notes very accurate according to my keyboard, but the sharps and flats are still not quite right. I am using a modified highland reed right now, and boy is it
loud! When I obtain a real gaita reed, I'll go on to attempt more accuracy,
The tone is so far not bad at all, but not in the league of top makers as you
would expect. I'll be happy to share my measurements with you at that point.
Dan
edit:
Who knows, between the two of us, maybe we can figure it out :-)

Lo primero me gustaría que entiendan que conseguir un puntero con una timbre personal y bello lleno de matices, que sea fácil de templar y muchas otras cosas, puede ser el trabajo de toda una vida. Yo mismo muchas veces estoy en mi taller a las 6:00h para poder trabajar en mis punteros primero de comenzar la jornada de trabajo productivo y no es la primera vez que veo dar en el reloj las 2 o las 3 de la madrugada por la misma razón.

Pienso que los artesanos que consiguen resultados es por que hacen lo mismo que yo y es muy lógico que algo que es tan costoso de conseguir, y en muchos caso con un gran sacrificio personal (familia, diversion, etc) no este colgado en la red ni sea facilitado a nadie sea profesional, amateur o amigo intimo.

Yo les dejo aquí unos planos que realizo Manolo Quirós (una gran persona y gaitero asturiano prematuramente fallecido) de una gaita de J.Renboredo y que publico en su trabajo "El libro de la gaita".

No encontrarán las medidas interiores del puntero completas pero si algo por donde empezar Dxd/longitud= una sección de cono y con ella una herramienta para comenzar. El resto de dibujos del torneado son bastante fiables.

Espero les sea útil.

Chus, thank you very much indeed.
Sorry I can't speak Spanish yet, it will take a couple of weeks. (OK, another bad joke)
But really, thanks a lot!
