Fallboard Springs for Steinway Duo-Art Grand
By Don Teach

I am looking at the little metal piece that holds up the fall board
in a Steinway Duo-Art grand.  Does anyone know for sure what kind of
steel was used to make this part?  I would suspect spring steel but
then it is possible that 1018 would work.  This part is in the cheek
block in each end of the piano.  I am thinking of making it out of
.035" spring steel.  The original was much thicker.
