Building Grand Piano Action Model
By Mike Haydon

While mentoring under a local tuner, I built a model of an upright
action from parts taken from a "spare parts" action in his shop, as
directed by him.  This model was helpful in learning to regulate an
upright action, as all the parts and their interaction are clearly

I would like to construct a similar model of a grand action, if anyone
on the list has a junked grand action and would be willing to take a
few parts off it, I will gladly pay any shipping costs.

 [ Mike, could you make a model of the grand piano action developed
 [ by Dr. Clarence Hickman?  I can supply the drawings.  -- Robbie
