FS Free: Broken Beckwith
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  The following came from a visitor to Player-Care.

John A. Tuttle

I am writing to you with a saddened heart.  I moved my childhood piano
all the way from Montana to Washington State this last weekend, only to
have had a horrible accident with it today.  To make a long story short,
I basically have a pile of 102-year-old kindling.

I am writing to you to offer original replacement parts from my piano to
anyone who wants to or is restoring their piano.. Many of the parts are
undamaged, but the shell and keyboard is beyond repair.  The harp still
is intact.

If you know of anyone or any website that I could offer these parts I will
hang on to them for a month or so, before hauling them to the dump.

Thank you for your help and if anyone can salvage any pieces it will ease
my broken heart.
