Key weighing…

After rebuilding the action for my Bechstein “A” Sheraton, and fitting new hammers, a few of the keys were too light touch wise. I removed an old key lead, plugged the hole (you can see the new plug just behind the black portion of the key), then re-assembled the action with the newly plugged keys in place.

In the picture here you can see the 52g touch weight on the front of the key, and a new 15g lead resting on the top of the key near the balance point, with a mark on the side of the key ready for drilling.

The finished piano can now be viewed at Handel Pianos.

Wrest plank…

Polishing the new wrest plank for a Sheraton Bechstein model “A” grand. Another late night in the workshop!

Note the old plank just behind (underneath all the tools) being used as reference for the new plank.
