Abstract

In the production of tuning forks, the adjustments required to resonate them are often reiterive, time consuming and costly. One operation that is commonly used involves the removal or addition of mass to both tines. A similar operation is employed to balance the fork for purposes of increasing its Q (figure of merit).
