Pacific Piano, who imports a lot of the Tokiwa parts into the USA, is a good source for information on these old Chickerings. I don't believe that they have a shank that will utilize the old brass flanges but I know from first hand experience that

I have tried google, the problem is I have a box of parts which I am unfamiliar with, I could make a new trap work more like a modern version but I would like to use the original pieces or what is left of them. I am sure that there are pieces missing

EnGee, I agree the Alfred's book is a little light on the details. Since I don't have a teacher I tend to watch a lot of youtube videos as another learning resource. And make use of these forums, too, of course. We're still here and making progress,

I like Morodiene's fingering. Depending on the effect you want, I might not repeat the same finger on a note (unless pedaled or you want the separation). If you want to try it without repeating, you can play 3-2 on the G, and 2-1 on the Eb and keep

I use a dr. Scholl's callus remover. The metal side makes quick work of getting the rough shape done. Then you can flip it over and use the sanding side for a first pass, then I switch to my shop made boards to finish up. Works great.

I have used Dremel with action out of the piano. The variable speed model on slow setting and w/o the guide so you may see better. Another tool is a coarse woodworkers file.
