Below are pictures of the kinds of blocks that sit on top of the SAC and in front of the TSH/

The photo above is made from two kinds of wood. The dark wood is 3/8 wide, which is the same size as the TSH, the light wood was glued to create side flanges. The photo below is cut from one piece of wood

The next two shows the under side of the block. as you can see I glued a 1/32 piece of wood as shown, this 1/32” (0.79375mm) (0.079375 cm) allows the air to flow from the SAC to the TSH. The block is to sit on top of the SAC and is to cover it.

The below photo is a routed channel in the block . also two of the photos shown have no side flanges. The Flanges are to block wind if you play outside from going over the TSH/ it also helps to get the airflow forwarding across the TSH more directly.

I drill holes in the side of the block to tie down the block on the flute.
By the way, 1/32 is a set channel do not go bigger or smaller, trust me on this one.
