Regulation issues are fixed with either regulation screws, or flexing.
First off, take the upper stack and the thumb assembly off.
When you're done regulating the D, E and F to the F#, add the upper stack, then you have to adjust the A key to the Bb (the Bb being the key that the F is supposed to close later on) with a regulation screw. Then you have to regulate F to Bb, you have to flex the upper bridge for that, very carefully and tiny movements at a time with parallel pliers that you have put a protection on (they have some plastic thing you glue on at school, can't remember the name of it at the moment, anyways..).
Now put on the thumb assembly. Regulate the B thumb lever to the Bb by flexing the lever (the touchpiece side of the lever) with protected parallel pliers.
Now, some folks here regulate by fixing corks around, and that's okay too, whatever works for them, they've probably been doing it for years and like it that way (and I fully respect them for doing so). I'm just writing this up because I know you're going to Red Wing, don't bring me a shitstorm for this.
I wish this was the first time that I thought you two were the same person (only because of the similar username, bah...)
But I also had to cross oceans and live in a different continent (speaking my second language solely for nine months was also fun).
Of course fluteguy18 is handsome, he plays flute, how could he not be?
