Hello. I am relatively new to resonators and just bought a used Regal RD-30T. Does anyone know of a diagram or drawing of how this instrument is assembled? A good drawing of a similar resonator might be enough for me to learn about the instrument. It has a few more parts than the acoustic guitars I own. Thanks for helping a newcomer.
Do a search for the original patent for more drawings and explanations of the figures.

Here are StewMac's setup instructions for a spider-cone guitar. It includes pictures.
Howard Parker's resonator maintenance video might also be helpful.
Thank you, Howard.
The StewMac link and Howard's video are the ticket.
I'm trying to imagine myself as a reso rookie looking at the Dopyera patent drawings, and the phrase "It's all Greek to me" comes to mind.
Thanks for the mention peeps. I have a new topic in mind for the winter months ahead!
